The Next Four - Six Weeks

Hi everybody. Remember about a week or so ago I asked for your understanding and forgiveness for my need to stop replying to your lovely comments because I needed some "me" time so I could do more art? Well, there was a white lie in there. Yes, I needed more "Me" time but not for art, I've been having some significant health issues and I hoped by lowering some commitments I could work on the issues. I've realized this week that I can't hide from this health crisis any longer and I have to take a significant chunk of time off to deal with my health.

This means that although the APR challenges will go up every saturday (I have six weeks of them prewritten and scheduled), I will not be able to put your pretty art at the top of every week's new challenge. The only blogging I will be doing will be a few book reviews that I have promised publishers previously. They have already sent the advanced copies and I feel obligated to do my due diligence because they sent me the books.  Hopefully with four to six weeks of concentrated effort I can turn this health crisis around and get back to the business of a normal life.

Please bear with me and don't leave permanently, I am coming back and I don't want to lose any of you! I'd miss you all too much. :o)

Talk soon? Ok, make that a little later, I promise.
Best,

  13. Dearest Jenn,

    I am standing among a long line of friends worldwide who wish you nothing but the best in healing. Take comfort in knowing that none of us is abandoning you and rather, that we all would do whatever was in our power to make you well.

    I thought of you today in the fondest way, and found a little something for you, for which I'd been searching. It's not chicken soup but rather something that I hope will bring a smile to your face. I'll post it soon so be on the look out.

    Hang in there!

    Much love,
    Your sister from another mother,
    Ellen

  17. Oh, Jenn! I am just coming out of a bad health bout that has lasted about two months, so I totally understand. Please just take care of yourself. In fact, spoil yourself rotten! Sending healing thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs!

  18. I've had life long health problems and it always hurts to have to step back from my goals and take care of myself, however, it's vital. You do SOOO much! Find a good pace for yourself that allows your own creative time -- it's so important for healing and maintaining health. We love your posts and all the networking you do for others, but take care of Jenn first. Here's prayers for your health and for balance in this busy world.

  19. I am so sad that you are not in the best of health and hope you make a full recovery as soon as possible. You have been very brave soldiering on even though you have not been well, but now you need all your strength to get well. The APR is a wonderful place and you have made it work brilliantly with your thought provoking prompts. Thinking of you x

  23. Jenn - we will all be here - hoping to hear that you are doing much better. I will keep you in prayer. You give so much - now you need to "take" time for your own needs.

  24. Sorry to hear you have health problems, sending my thoughts and prayers to you from down under. Of course we wont desert you!

  25. Jenn, I hadn't realised, so insensitive of me. You are wise to retrench to deal with health issues. I am so sorry you are ill and will keep you in my thoughts.
    I have been helped myself by APR and your comments about what I have posted, which have helped me to lose myself in art and commenting and finding new artist bloggers, so that I can forget my own health problems.
    So, you have done so much for me and I appreciate it. Thank you.
    Healing thoughts sent with best wishes. Jez
