Without a doubt you have been there for us, even when we have stepped aside and resurfaced you have been there. I am truly sorry to hear about the challenges that you are facing right now but I know without a doubt that if you give it to God all will be well. It isn't always easy to see that light ahead but he is always there eager for you to ask. Continue to pray for your family as I will do the same. I know there are many other great leaders out there but none like you.

I am so sorry to hear of the difficulties you and your family are facing. You have done a great service to many people on Spark by your dedication in posting a daily challenge for that long. My prayers are with you as you face this personal challenge and put your efforts into a different direction. Love and hope be with you.

Shan, I'm so sorry to hear all that you are going through right now and will send you a PM.

But I also wanted everyone here to read what a special part of my Spark journey the One-Day Challenges have been. Wow, I even remember how you set up challenges for us when you vacationed in Japan...and how you kept going through the transition time for your husband's last job change!

Praying for you and your loved ones today...

Blessings today,
Michelle

We will all miss you but we also know you're making the best decision...and we support you.

Be well and know that you have touched and changed the lives of THOUSANDS of people. That is an incredible achievement. You are a wonderful person!

Wow, I just joined this team today and was really moved by the sadness that is going on in Shan's life but moved at how many people seem to step in and give her the support she needs. I wish you well, Shan and hope your family can pick up the pieces and things will work out. I know finding work in this economy is the worst but it sounds like you have a loving and supportive family. I am sending you well wishes and hope that your Great Nana will be surrounded by love and happiness as well as your mother in law.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Speaking as a nurse, in these times when taking care of our loved ones (becoming primary care givers) becomes a major part of our lives, we often tend to neglect ourselves. REMEBER to take deep breaths and take care of you!
You and your family will find your way again, this is just life's way of throwing you curve balls.

Hello Shannon,

I am so sorry to hear about everything and hope all works out. Best wishes on your up-coming marathon as I know the amount of work it takes. Hope that your husband's former employer gets there act together and pays him as they should and glad to hear he has another job. You have my prayers for your mother-in-law and Nana.

Julie -

Julie

i am so sorry for all of the recent events that you and your family and having to endure. i can completely understand, since i have had similar issues continue to happen in my life over the past year. I can't thank you enough for being there for all of us every morning over the past years, we know that you are still dedicated and love us all since we are a big family here, but you need to take care of and focus on yourself now. i wish i could help take over, but i am still dealing with things myself.
best of luck to you and your family - i hope we still see you around on the boards!

I know this time it's for good - I "get it" now & would never be able to do it without SparkPeople and the fabulous support of my friends here - Thank you so much! You've changed my life!

No regrets - just lessons learned.

Team,

I've been the sole moderator for this team for something like 4 or 5 years now. I have posted a challenge EVERY DAY for those years. I've been on vacations, been ill, had craziness in my life, and I always managed to post challenges for us.

Over the last 2 weeks, my life has changed drastically. My husband was laid off on 7/1. Although he has another job starting at the middle of the month, his former company is not being fair regarding his severance and accrued vacation time. This is all incredibly stressful, as we are a one income family.

Secondly, my father-in-law left my mother-in-law on Father's Day. After 43yrs of marriage, he has asked for divorce. This has been incredibly devastating to all of us, as we are a very close family. My husband and I have always been the "level headed couple", and now my mother-in-law is looking to us for help. Her house is in the next city over, so we will be doing quite a bit of work on the home so she can sell it. We aren't sure if she will be living with us, or we will be finding a house for her.

Lastly, our Great-Nana had a major stroke last Tuesday. This 87yo woman is a dear friend of mine. I visit with her 1-2 times a week for crafts, to watch old movies, and to just keep her company. The stroke that she had has left her right side completely paralyzed. She is also blind in her right eye. The doctors thought she wouldn't make it past 72hrs, but she did. Now, our family is looking towards rehabilitation and family living arrangements. Although she is 87, she was living on her own and was functioning quite well. That has all changed now. I've spent over 35hrs in the ICU with her this last week. I'm emotionally drained beyond words.

I am telling this to you, Team, because it is time for me to step down as your leader. On top of the craziness in my life, I am also training for several marathons, and looking to become an art teacher at last.

I would like to put 2-3 other VERY ACTIVE members in charge of this team. We have over 6000 members that depend on the daily challenges. I feel it would be a disservice to leave them without having others to take my place. If you feel called to do this job, please message me privately at: shannon@nowhere.nu

It has been a pleasure to serve this team. I will miss you all, but Life and Family need to come first. Please know that I may not be here with the challenges, but I will be thinking of you.

With Deepest Respect,
Shan emoticon
