Mark me absent

Well, I guess my last 365 post will be my last. To tell you the truth I haven't picked up my camera in weeks.  I know many of you won't follow me anymore and I'm OK with that. To say that my family has other things going on is....well......an understatement. 

1. My MIL was just diagnosed with cancer after being in the hospital for pneumonia. We are still in the stages of staging it.  It is either a cervical or uterine.  They found malignant cells and a very large tumor in her uterus after a D&C.
2. I am walking my SIL through her mom dying in hospice with Stage 4 Brain Cancer which was found a week ago. They gave her weeks and now it is days.  My heart is in pieces for her for there is nothing anyone can do but wish for her to go in peace without suffering. 
3.  Life around here just goes on.  Between raising and homeschooing 4, having a shift work husband and not having family all that close I get overwhelmed.  We have speech and debate, scouts, driving people here and there.  I just asked the Lord to help me weed out things that I needed to.

So, I guess we all have to choose what to give up and sometimes it's not the thing you WANT it to be but I just don't have the mental/physical energy to do it.  You girls who do it ROCK. With those of you who have more children that I do and do it, you have my admiration.  I'll blog as I can for my enjoyment and I do enjoy 365 and ALL the girls I have met through it.  I will continue to read as I can.  I hope to see you girls virtually and the ones I get to see IRL even better.  So, pop in every once in a while to see what we're up too.
Because He lives,
Allison

Praying for your family. What a difficult season you are in. It is totally understandable that you need to let go of this for now.
