Odat

Hi everyone.

This is Deb (from Boondoggled). Odat asked me to log in and let everyone know what is going on. Her husband passed away last night. She is okay, dealing with everything as best she can, and will be back when things settle down a little.

She is reading all the comments everyone leaves for her. Your well wishes do her good.

Thanks,
Deb

Odat-

Grief is a difficult emotion to deal with. It is exhausting, draining, but necessary and eventually healing. Allow yourself time to deal with this difficult period in your life. Know that we inthe Blogosphere can serve as a distraction for you when you need it.

With love,
Loving Annie
