Taking A Break

posted in: Uncategorized | 2

Hi folks! I know it seems as though I just got back so why am I leaving again already?

Well, life is getting a little heavy right now.  My grandmother is having surgery this week to remove a cancerous mass so I am taking some time to be with her. Time I would usually dedicate to you.

Second, as you may remember I recently joined up with a friend to start #unitecloud– a local grassroots, social media movement to encourage community amongst different racial/religious(etc) groups in our area. Well, the local paper did a story and apparently it has gone national (yeah!) but it has also brought with it much negative attention. Hate mail is not a fun thing to receive, folks.

I have no plans to give up the cause or the blog here, but I do need to take some time and think about what this means for my family. Posts may change- less personal. I don’t really know. I have some thinking to do.

In the meantime, I am taking the week off. If you are so inclined, I would appreciate prayers for my grandmother’s strength and comfort.

    Seriously? How can bringing communities together be worth sending anyone hate mail over? I wish I could say that I’m completely shocked but I’m not. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”-Martin Luther King Jr

    As a mother to multiples I have always enjoyed your writing. It has made me feel less alone and I do truly hope that your beautiful family is doing well.
