On with the other things I have to say.
I am afraid that I have no post to share with you today and there is no link up either. I have also closed the Christmas Card Swap (yesterday afternoon) and later today the post will go up to say who is swapping with who.
Things with Man have taken another turn for the worse and is back in hospital again. Each time he has an "episode" for want of a better word his health seems to decline exponentially and he had another "episode" a week ago today and is of course left much worse than he was before. We don't know what will happen, he has gone back up again in the past after days when we feared the worst, but right now we don't know what will happen and he is very sick and overall he keeps getting worse and worse.
N.B. I use the word "episode" because we don't know if he had a stroke or something else was at play, there are many possibilities, so this is just an easy word to cover something that we don't have a name for.
Although Man is now living - and therefore now in hospital - very far away from us, we still need to see him, and the distance just makes that harder. There were good reasons for him moving, but I wish that he hadn't. Who knows if it would have made any difference anyway. That is all beside the point.
The thing is that Man is very sick again and I just cannot concentrate on two things at once and I am sure that you know that Man and my husband have to take precedence over things like blogging - and I have to come before blogging too, I am realising that!
Perhaps when things are clearer I will be able to share more with you, but right now I can't, and I have to be as straight with you as I can because I don't know how to be any different. So as I can't bear to share, and cannot be cryptic or ignore it I have decided to take a break from blogging. I think that is fairer to us all, and especially Hubby and I. I don't know when I will return, I will do, but it might not be this side of Christmas, or I may be back on Monday if things suddenly improve. I don't know.
I have said before I will be away and then back and then off I go again and try to return and so on. Frankly it is making me a little loopy and I don't suppose it is fun for you either dear readers. So it seems easier to just take a break for a while and then return when I know that I can actually remain returned and sharing with you as I would like to. Whatever the situation I have no intention of returning before the end of the month.
So sorry about the lack of Five On Friday, I am sure you will find some other great link ups to join in with and have fun visiting. Sorry too that I will not be making a big thing of the card swap. Having opened it up to you I wanted to match you up in pairs and to see you all swapping, but I am afraid that right now I cannot do anything else. I will post later today with the swap partners in a separate post.
I sound very down, and of course I would be crazy to deny that I am, but I am not as bad as I sound, I always do sound worse in writing than in real life! So don't worry about me, instead if you have any, please send a few prayers up for Man every now and then for whatever happens to be peaceful.
If/as and when anything "dramatic" happens I will let you know.
Please accept my apologies and until we see each other again perhaps you can do a few things for me.
Love yourself. Love each other. Love your family, your friends and neighbours and those around you in the world. You know I am all about the love.
Be kind to everyone you meet. You don't know their story any more than they know yours, so just be kind.
Have a great Christmas, Hanukah or anything else that you are celebrating, and if you don't celebrate anything just have some good old fashioned fun.
Stay safe and warm and enjoy each day as it comes.
Take care, love to you all and in case I don't get chance to say it, because I really do mean it, Happy Christmas and blessings to you all.
