An old photo of Dan and I
 Old and fuzzy as it is and not at all flattering, I love it.   I remember  it was a moment of such laughter, that whatever struck us funny got us to the point that we couldn't look at one another  without howling with laughter all over again.
I hope when Dan and I are long gone from this world, when our family and friends remember us..they remember us like this.  

So much is going on right now that I won't be blogging for a few more days.  I have tried to visit a bit..but right now it is easier to do a few visits and try to  stay caught up a little bit, with what is happening with everyone the best I can.
Right now it's difficult.  
You won't miss a lot with me being gone, but I will miss a great deal not keeping up with what's going on with all of you.
See you soon...don't wait up.  I have my own key and will let myself in..
~big hugs,~


  1. Dearest Mona - I hope whatever it is you are doing is going to be OK. I hope you and PH and your family are OK. I shall miss your sweet blog, but do understand that you need time to do do what you need to do. I wouldn't worry about the key, my door is always open to you. lol and hello to dear PH as well.

  14. Many, many, many gentle hugs, my Dear.

    Take care of yourself... Even if it is not your first concern, right now...

    We always have to take care of ourselves... Especially in trying times.

    Lots and lots of gentle hugs,

  15. Oh dear sweet Mona. I do hope that everything is okay. I will give you a call this weekend. Hope you are surviving this terrible heat - I hardly go out of the house - to darned hot.

  16. You have been such an important part of my blog reading...ever since I first found you! everyone else...hoping that you just need a break, but in the back of my mind, I know it must be more than I'll pray and keep you and your family in my thoughts. Until you are back sharing your life with us in posts again, we will be missing a LOT!

  17. hi mona! i hope everything is okay? are you still getting rain? write when you can! joyce

  18. Mona, I totally understand that blogging takes a back seat to all the things in life that need attending to. We'll see you when you return.
    I can see why you love that photo of yourself & Dan. It is a treasure for sure. So many photos are posed & seldom do we see people with such genuine expressions of spontaneous joy & laughter captured as your photo does - fuzziness and all.

  19. Hi Mona- I am just getting back to blogging after a long break. I have missed you. I hope that you are all right and that the "busy" of life is a good busy. That is a wonderful picture of you and Dan. I am pretty sure that you will be remembered someday as a smiling, loving person that filled lives with your joy.

    God bless. Drop me a line if you get a chance and feel up to it- xo Diana

  20. I love how you both have the "giggles" in that pic. Remember those as the BEST of times. I hope you are healing from whatever...your time away will make us miss you but you what's right. Sending you much love.

  21. Hope your family is all OKAY! Be well.... and be as happy as you can. xox

  22. Dear Mona, prayers are going up for you and whatever you're dealing with there.

  23. Dear Mona, I will miss you, but I hope whatever is going on is something good. Take care of yourself and come back soon. Lotsof love to you.

  24. Hi Mona,
    I have been out of the blogging world all summer and now I come back and read this. Oh dear, you have me worried of course. I just finished reading about 6 of your blog posts and they were so much fun. Gosh I missed you. And your pics are great, I love this one you shared. No wonder you have such beautiful kids, you are such a beautiful woman.
    I will be thinking and praying that all will be resolved soon. Hugs friend, Cindy

  25. Girl you do what you need to do and do not worry about it. PRAYERS AND HUGS. Sandie

  26. Mona, like everyone else has said, I do hope that all is well with yiu and your famiky and that you are taking a well deserved break for yourself and to so whateve it is yiu want to. It goes without saying that you will be missed in blogland, but life is much more important. Our door also is always open and it's not necessary to stop in until you have the time. Thinking of yiu always, dear friend. Hope you are enjoying more rains as well. Nice photo pf yourself and Danny.

  27. Come back soon Mona meanwhile take care. I'm also going through a difficult time so I understand.

  28. Been missing you. I hope everything is OK there. I will keep checking in. That photograph captured the happiness in the moment so perfectly.

    Take care, Mona.

  29. God Bless-hope all is well:).



  30. I hope all is well with you sweet Mona.

  31. I do hope all is well in your household and life.
    Taking a break every now and then from blogging is needed by all.
    Thanks for coming by but know that you don't have to comment..just coming by to read is a good thing.
    I actually think, if everyone just blogged and read and forgot comments, we'd all breath a sigh of relief. Altho it is very uplifting to have good comments, it also drains us all, I think.


Thank you SO much for sharing your thoughts! Your comments are very important to me.
