Dear Friends

Well I have been dreading this day. Things are getting difficult , life is very complicated at the moment.
The MIL is ill, the husband is stressed, there are all sorts of things going on family wise.
The thing is the husband dose not like me blogging, in fact he hates it. I just cannot cope with everything that is going on at the moment and fight to write ( that is a great tag) seriously though I just can’t cope with arguments over my blog.
At the moment my life feels like it is falling apart so it with deep regret that I am having to stop posting. I shall try and read and comment if I can but please believe I will miss you all more than I can say.
If I have anytime on my own I might try to post a quick few words to keep my hand in . I do hope at some point I can come back properly.
Bee I am sorry for not finishing Love Is In Da Blog but who knows next year?
So to all of you,especially those of you who I have known a long time, some since I started and to my newer followers I am not abandoning you all I  just  have  to  be  away  for  my  sanity.
Oh! Look I could go on forever because I don’t want to say this. But for now adieu. I will miss you all so much.

I  am hoping  that  Paul  Curran  will keep up  his If  we  were  having  coffee   every Sunday  I  am trying  to find  him a  host  and  as  soon as I  know where  he is  going I  shall let  you all know!

Please  all be  be  well and be happy!

I  will  leave  you  a  song  that  describes  you  all!

    Prayers. It’s a shame your husband doesn’t understand your need to blog. Clearly, it’s your outlook. O hope life improves for you. Sending love.

    Oh, Willow, we will miss you so much. That said, it is important that you take care of yourself and family first. When all is well again know we will be waiting patiently for your return. Meanwhile our prayers are with you and yours. Personally, I owe you a great debt of gratitude Willow for giving me the opportunity to post weekly when I was new and unsure of myself. You were an excellent hostess, Willow.

    Thank you and our prayers are with you. Hugs:

    Ah, dear Willow… you know you will be missed, by me especially, as you and I have been blogging together for more than four years now…. I empathize with your decision, hard as it is; I do feel compelled to point out the unreasonable, selfish behavior which is prompting the decision, and note that hubby would do well to do a bit of growing up… end of rant.

    If you ever need to talk, my email is on my Home page; your name is always welcome in my inbox…. and, I’m a pretty good listener…

    Take care, and let us know you are okay now and then, in a comment, if you can….

    We, and especially I, love you, which means for you to be happy is essential to my own peace of mind….

    I won’t say adieu; I will say, see you later…

    Ned, aka gigoid, the dubious

    Sometimes it is best to float among the torrents and wave. Blogland is kind, understanding, and has patience. Rest. Float. May warmth and peace find you and yours.

    I understand, Willow. Sometimes life gets in the way.

    My husband also hates my blogging, or at least he thinks it’s pointless. Sometimes the fight just isn’t worth it.

    Hope when things settle down, you’ll be able to return, but don’t rush things. Your home life is most important right now.

    I just couldn’t bring myself to “Like” this post. I’m sorry for you and for your readers. I’m sorry it has come to this. May you and your hubby find greater love, peace, and joy. You’ll be missed.

    I am sending you good thoughts and energy for all that is going on in your life. Peace and happiness to you ~ always! Your posts will be missed.

    Not going to click “LIKE” as don’t like hearing this news. My thoughts and those of your many readers will be with you and hope you successfully navigate this challenge. I can go months without checking blogs due to other activities, but will miss being able to know there is always something new at your site and available whenever I visit. I really hope this is temporary and your husband realizes that his happiness is dependent on granting others the freedom to be happy. Life sometimes guides one in the right direction, and going through this may currently be the right thing for you in the long run. Wishing all works out for the best.

      Thank you zumpoemes, I have never known your name but you have been there since I started and you have been a beacon of talent. Thank you for your support. xxxx

    Well that’s a bugger for sure. The Textiliste isn’t keen if I mention her without clearing it first which is ok but this, well, grim. Hope you can unpick the lock sometime. Take care and keep writing the poetry.

      It’s not all hubby there is so much going on with the Mother in law (MIL) and other family stuff. The arguments about the poetry and blog is just the final straw. I shall try to pop in as I shall miss all the interesting posts not to mention the great friends I feel I have made, even if they are virtual. I am giving in not giving up. You have been an inspiration and great fun. In the words of the great Arni ‘I’ll be back’ 🙂

    Willow, sorry to hear things are so rough.
    Just know we care and will be waiting for you when the sun comes out again as she always does.
    Stanny sends you a special brown eyed loving gaze too.
    Take care and try to fret not.

    It is a shame when we don’t receive the support we should particularly from where it should be expected. Wishing you the best Willow as always! We will be here. -OM

    I regret that I have not read a lot of your beautiful blog, but I was drawn by fate (and Jason) to this post. Blogging can take up a lot of time. It can be overwhelming trying to balance blogging with the needs of the rest of our lives, yet it is also so important to many of us. I hope you and your husband can find a compromise, because blogging is important to you. I hope he can come to understand that better. But, no matter what, do take care of yourself, Willowdot.

    You sound like someone I would enjoy following so I really hate to hear you bid adieu. If you are like many of us, blogging is an emotional, stress-relieving outlet. How I wish I had some magical answer to halt your husband’s objections. I will be praying for your MIL, as well as you and your husband. Take care and I hope to see you writing again soon.

      Thank you so much Barb, I hope to be back if I can sort out the MIL , the family, the hubby and everything life entails! Be well and blog and hopefully I will be back! xxx

    Hi Willow, take good care of yourself and sometimes you have to take a break and sort out real life. My husband isn’t too keen on me blogging either so I know where you are coming from. A candle is lit for you and yours and a little present for you 🙂 Sending a big hug to you!
