Seeking Serenity-Taking A Break

Sundays are usually quiet
around here.
MyHero is on call a couple
of weekends a month so
we lay low on these weekends.

Last night's sunset looked
like this.

Quiet and serene.
I need a little serenity.

I started this blog as a way to
TAKE A BREAK.
Pretty obvious from my blog name, huh?
Anyway,
Right now
I need to take a break
from blogging for a while.

If you think on me at all
think of me somewhere
laughing my fool head off
at something said by
SweetCheeks.
or said by anyone of these
crazy people I call family.
Love to all of you and
I hope I have left you smiling.
your photo name

  2. Enjoy your time to gather sweet nothings in your soul. Do what needs to be done and refresh the heart.

    We're not going anywhere, just as I was busier than a bee getting ready for winter, you too need to do what needs to be done.

    warm hugs and kisses

  74. I had the kids last week and didn't check e-mail or blogs much and then this week, I missed you. So - I went to your last blog post to see what was up and now I know. So, enjoy your little break. Go by Starbucks a time or two and think about all of your blogger friends. You know we love you and miss you - but, we also care about you and wouldn't want you to stress over blogging. So, by all means take a well deserved break. We'll catch up when you get back.

    Love,
    Patty

  84. Oh Diana,
    I could use a break right about now. Nel's wedding was beautiful, and it was such a nice day for us all. With all the festivities, I need rest now. We all need a break every now and then, but just know that you will be missed, and be sure to tell SweetCheeks hello from Sheri during this time away. I will miss your sweet face on my blog. Your friendship is dear to me.

  97. Hi Diana, It has been almost a month now and I've got to say I'm pretty worried about you-so what is happening with you girl? Life does take us in different directions quite often and that is fine as long as you are alright. Please feel free to email with any prayer needs you might have-I have missed your crazy sense of humor. Sending love your way today.

    I was just thinking of you today and wanted to let you know you are missed! You always brought sunshine with your post.
    I understand the whole break thing-I have seriously been thinking of taking one myself. When you begin to feel posting is an obligation and not fun maybe it time to set it aside for a while.
    I hope this finds you and your family all well!
    Take care my friend-Kimberly
