I'm missing you

I've been spending a lot of time thinking, relaxing and reading.  I love blogging, it helps me live life in the way I want to live it, it helps me define my days and identify goals and new opportunities to learn.  I can't imagine giving up blogging but there may be changes in the way I do it.  But the main news I want to pass on to you today is that I've missed being here, I'm ready to come back, and I'll be here again tomorrow.

  30. And you have been missed, as well.

    Oh, to think about sitting and reading or just to sit and think. That sounds so wonderful, as well.

    We are in a busy season of life. I love our life but I look forward to quieter days as well.

  35. Glad to see a new post from you! :) I've been blogging for a few years. For the first year or two...I would post almost everyday. I realized it was just too much for me....so now, I just post when I want to, when I have time to and when I have something interesting to share. If that is once a week...then it is. :) If it's 3 days in a row...then that is what I do. I enjoy blogging and don't ever want to feel that I *have* to post just to post. :) Not sure if that is at all how you are feeling as well...but if it is, I can relate! :)
    Glad you are back and look forward to your posts! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Missed you Rhonda..good to have you back. Sometimes a rest from blogging is needed.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I know I am repeating what pretty much everyone else has said, but I am glad you are back. I've re-read many posts, especially the knitting/sewing ones, but I am looking forward to having you back in whatever manner you decide!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I missed you too. Your timing for a break was impeccable! It's the busiest time of the school year here and I didn't want to feel guilty about spending time in front of the computer! Welcome back.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Welcome back. Your life is inspiring, just the way you are!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Glad to see that you'll be back! I have missed reading your blog! I have looked around over in the forum, and while there is interesting stuff to read there, it's not the same. I hope that you can find a pace or rhythm that works for you (and therefore us too!)

  47. Rhonda

    I feel lots of changes going on. I hope you are refreshed and focused on your own changes, whether that is blogging or whatever. I have missed reading your blog everyday (but I do check it everyday) and hope you follow your heart and do what it is you need to do for yourself, not us. But if you do come back to us I will most certainly appreciate it. Peace. Myra

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think we have all missed you Rhonda :-)! So glad to have you back in whatever capacity you find works for YOU. I will admit though, my days have not been the same without your blogs and I've checked each and every day :-). You have such wisdom that is not always so readily passed on to us young mothers and I hope you had a lovely rest.

  54. You surely know you have been missed by your many readers! The main thing is that you yourself feel good about blogging and that the "force" is back with you.

  56. Dear Miss Rhonda, grown ups have to a break too! There are important things outside of blogs and lifestyle that need tendind sometimes, and you are most deserving of any time you take! I do adore your work, more so as a young person, your contributions to my day always produce a smile, take care of the chickens, they're a powerful kind of practical meditation, I'm certain of it!

  57. As with everyone else here I've missed your posts and am very happy that you're back from your break.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Wow Rhonda. Must make you feel special that so many of us say we missed you. But, I was wondering how to suggest that maybe you could limit your posts, and Katy said just about what I was thinking. Do what YOU want to do - we'll go along with that. I'll sign off as one of my friends used to .... "Mobs of hugs".

  72. Hey Rhonda - I've been reading everyday for nearly 2 years - except for 3 months when I had no Internet 'cause we were traveling...Miss you so much! I'm about your age but you validate what I've believed for years. And, there are precious few places where good old fashioned common sense is a virtue but here everyone's a believer...awesome!
