Hello all my friends. Some of you may have seen that portions of the US were devastated by historic flooding this week. I live in one of those areas along the Susquehanna River in a town that has been flooded. Thankfully our home was spared, as the river crested less than 100 yards from our house. We had enough water pouring into our normally dry and liveable basement to cause a headache but my husband's store was not so fortunate. The entire store was flooded. It happened so fast that he, his employees and some of his tenants had no clue what was going on and had to be rescued from the rising waters. It sits along one of the creeks that spilled its banks in an area that has never ever flooded before. Roads, bridges and even some houses are gone and washed away. There is sunshine after the rain and God has showed us his mercy. Yesterday and today have been sunny/warm despite the forecast for continued rain and we are very, very thankful! We live in a community that is strong and sticks together in a crisis and we will be back on our feet soon.
This being said, I must take a break from blogging for a short time. This nightmare compounded with another situation that has been going on with my family is leaving no time for my beloved blog and I feel terrible about not being able to visit some of you over the last few weeks. It would have been quiet here a few weeks ago had it not been for my DTs and a few of my friend's Blog Hops. My DT's are so awesome and have been so supportive! I feel blessed not only to be a part of them but to know these talented and caring ladies! Also, thank you to FCCB for spotlighting a few of my projects lately!
In the midst of the all the chaos here, I haven't had the chance to share some very exciting news, I have some projects that have been selected for magazine publications! They'll be published in the beginning of next year! Without the love and support I receive here, I may have never had the nerve to submit anything so a BIG Thank You to all of you and especially to Kimberly for that!
If you are still reading my mini novel today, I have some DT projects scheduled to post over the next few weeks but I am not going to be working on any new projects. Thank you to everyone who has continued to stop by and leave your wonderful and uplifting comments and thank you for understanding that my family must come first right now. I will be back ASAP. Take care everyone!
