Leaving Spark People :(

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

I am going to be leaving all you good people at Spark at least for a while. The past several months have been chaotic at best. I lost my job last year at this time and my husband lost his back in April. In August he found a job but we had to move to North Carolina. I packed up the house and moved.

One week after the move my father told me that he had Stage 2 Esophogial (sp?) cancer. I am now moving back to Florida to take care of my mom who was diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer's earlier this year.

While taking care of them I am going to try to take care of myself too but I just won't be able to come on to Spark like I should. If things go well with my dad's recovery I am hoping to start back in January.

Thanks Spark and my Spark friends for always being there!

    Karyn, sweet Karyn, I am more than sorry to hear this news!! You probably recall when my DH lost his job too & that was right after we packed up the house & moved from VA, to GA. I've gone through my dad having "C" & my grandma diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I know you're burden is NOT light, sweetie & you've got my thoughts & prayers with you!!

    Love, yer' Annie

    Tough position - but know the Good Lord will see you thru this trying time in your life. Do not hesitate to ask for help. You are only one person and you can only take care of other people, if you are taking care of yourself.

    Prayers and positive energy headed your way!

    Take care - maybe you should just stay on just for the support? Whatever you choose - best of luck to you. emoticon emoticon
