While blogging has been mostly none existent in the last couple weeks, I do plan to get on track just as soon as possible. I miss this wonderfully, fun hobby of blogging and genealogy. I miss the camaraderie, learning and creativity it brings.
I have been side tracked by family and friends health issues; deaths, illnesses (pneumonia), broken bones, cancer, surgeries, hospitals. From robbery to a missing person, and people with guns, the negatives have been haunting me and they don't seem to be stopping. I am trying to remember "this is life" and I can't "fix" everything, but it is difficult, I tend to hurt for everyone.
This past week alone, a family member (19) was killed in a car accident. (Received the phone call upon returning home from the funeral last Wednesday) Today my dog had surgery, and I was informed another family member has pancreatic cancer…this particular family member… we went to his brothers funeral last week and his sister had an aneurysm at the hospital while the brother was there before he died. She is still in the hospital, it has been since the first of Aug. Now, this brother…he has been in the hospital since the night of his brothers funeral, in fact the hospital wanted to admit him the day of the services, but they told him to just come back after the services. He has a 10 year old son.
Needless to say I am helping, visiting and doing what I can, as I can. I have been and will be helping to care for the 10 year old much more now. He is my nephew. While there has been over a dozen different things that have happened lately, the hardest to believe is three in one family, brothers and a sister all having such severe illnesses at the same time. I can only do what I can do.
I hope to post at least once a week, if time allows. It will be good for me to do something I love. I wanted you to know, it isn't that I am trying to avoid blogging, my mind just hasn't been able to process the idea of doing it, it has been pre-occupied.
Thank you all so much for your understanding. I have a blogiversary coming up in a couple of days and I look forward to posting for it! But for now, I am off to visit my brother-in-law at the hospital, right after my daughter comes to give my dog a pain shot...
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
