I have tried!

I have tried and I have sadly failed .

The weight of all this makes it impossible for me to inhale.

I am drowning , sinking going down for the third time

I swear to you I have earnestly tried I can’t cope and I know that that is a crime.

Everywhere I look Β more email , more poetry and prose

Drowning by the minute , if I close my eyes it grows.

Please forgive me everyone I just have to draw a line

I just cannot answer or comment on all your posts I feel a swine!

So please do not judge me too harshly for I have really tried

To keep on top of all your posts . But I am drowning I can’t comply!

I have to draw a line and start again

Please accept , please forgive me, don’t complain!


Sorry I just can’t cope

There is too much mail and I am such a dope .

I love you all!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    I know how you feel Willowdot and the solution
    is not to worry about it, just visit where and when
    you can and that is good enough for everyone πŸ™‚

    And if not tell me who they are and I
    will send the Zombies round for a visit πŸ™‚

    Have a fun evening and be good πŸ˜‰

    Nothing to worry about. It happens things pile up. Take it easy Willow. We are your friends we understand. Anything I can do to help?

    AWWW wilowdot21, it’s all cool. Just start ‘here’ and go forward. We won’t prune you, I promise.:) Well, I won’t be doing any pruning–I doubt anyone else will either.

    An all too familiar lament – we’re victims of our own success, I reckon.

    Willowdot… I know your feeling exactly….. Please know that I value our blog relationship far more than any missed visit or comment could harm…. Please know that I am always in your corner…

    I am the same, Willow. I have over 100 emails still remaining to be read and the majority are WordPress blogs.

    I wouldn’t worry about reading them all in a big rush or even at all… Take your time or delete we don’t mind.

    Glad you had a nice break πŸ™‚
