Blessed Autumn

Believe it or not I am still alive and kicking.  I think if I am not mistaken that it has been since May that I last posted.  A total of almost four months.  Life has definitely been moving faster than at this time last year.  Maybe not necessarily fast just more full.  There have been up times and there have been down times but it seems that maybe things may be coming to a time of evening out.  And what better time could that be than  Autumn. 
Autumn has got to be my favorite time of the years.  The colors, the smells, the feeling of slowing down and preparing for winter…. The cooler temperatures and the ability to get back into the kitchen and cook… I mean really cook, with no worry of heating up the house too much.  Yet the best thing I think is the ending of the year and the beginning of a new year.  New beginnings are always welcomed, especially when what was a constant before was not a necessarily good constant. 
Don’t get me wrong… I have always been up for a challenge and change has not really scared me.  But this last year was by far one of the most challenging times I think I may have had.  Talk about retrospective…… I have had enough to last for a while at least.  Yet in all I have grown.  I finally started to work a bit more with my esty site.  Back at the first of the years my runes slowly began to sell.  I added a few other items and they were liked as well.  I still have a ways to go to make it what I want it to be but it is a beginning. 
I have missed so many of you over the last months.  Many of you have written emails, letters and such letting me know that I am thought of still.  It is a good thing to know.  I have even received comments on past posts which encouraged me to get my tail back here and at least check in occasionally.  I want to say thank you so much for all the kind words and warm thoughts sent my way… They were so much appreciated and so much needed. 
I hope to be here more often in the coming times, I even changed the look of my blog.  I have to admit though that it had been so long since I done it that I felt like a beginner again learning all over.  Ah, life it can be such a beach sometimes, can’t it…. Til next time, blessings to all of you

Challenges are good things...they keep us moving forward, and you have had your share this year to be sure. It is comforting to me to know you kept moving through it all, like the true 'light' for others that you are. So...keep on shinin' Lady, cuz we sure do miss you too!
