To My Dear Readers......

This has been a very difficult post for me to write, but I'm just going to come right out with it and share with you what's been going on with me. I've been dealing with some health and personal issues lately that are preventing me from enjoying and being able to concentrate on my blog. It's nothing serious, so no need for worry, but just know that physical and mental exhaustion are some of the symptoms. Therefore, I have decided to severely curtail my regular blogging for the time being. I hope to be back in full swing within a month or two and you all will most certainly be among the first to know when my first grandchild is born (within the next week or two!)

My sincerest apologies to hubby's co-irkers for your lack of a sweet treat this week and the weeks to come. It's been going on a year now that I've been enjoying this weekly exchange with you and I look forward to being able to return to this again soon.

It is my deepest hope that you all will not forget me, as I have found such comfort and friendship in this food blogging community. I'll be keeping in touch with you through your own food blogs from time to time and only ask for your prayers to help me through my current situation.

love,
Mags

I will miss you and keep you in my thoughts!!

Although I am sure the circumstances aren't the same, I was in a similar situation last summer. My health was a disaster, fortunately nothing serious. But a battery of tests and finally two surgeries left me exhausted.

You will be back and in the meantime, all of your blogging friends will miss you!!

June said...

Mags, I'll be here when you return. You are too funny, and bring so much happiness, it would be impossible to forget you.

Take care and know that your friends are pulling for you. Even those of us that you haven't met yet.

Am sort of a 'newbie' to your blog -- but so appreciate all the hard work and effort you've obviously put in here! Take care of yourself and don't you dare come back till you're good and ready!

misterrios said...

I will also miss you, but hopefully you will return as awesome and sarcastic as ever. Taking time for yourself is more important than entertaining us, but when you come back, be sure that we will all be here to celebrate your return! Take care, and until then.

Sweet and Savory said...

Mags, I hope you mean that whatever is plagueing you is not serious. Wishing you a complete recovery, quickly.

You will be missed. You are a very special blogger and dearly loved.

If you need written support, let me know and I will try to entertain you. Take care of yourself.

I miss you already.

Of course you will not be forgotten! At least not by me...

Take all the time you need. Good thing you have such a great husband to take care of you. You have a whole bunch of people rooting for you.
You are the best.

Megan said...

Good luck with everything you're going through. I can definitely relate to the exhaustion. There's no way I'd forget you. Your posts are so funny and memorable! All the best!

coffeegrounded said...

Mags, I'm going to try leaving you a comment, again. I haven't been successful the past two times I've tried, but I am not giving up until my computer explodes. ;)

What ever ails you, I hope you kick it good and hard in the seat of it's pants. If you need help, call, myself and several others will come and help you and we'll wear our steel-toed boots!

Seriously, I care about you...and so do all the others that are sitting here on the sidelines. You get yourself back in the saddle and we'll all ride, side-by-side, eating bon-bons and drinking whiskey. Or coffee. Yeah, let's do coffee!

Take care, and know that you are missed.

Mags said...

Thank you all so very much for caring. I'm speechless at your outpouring of kind words and support. I'm doing somewhat better and plan to slowly work my way back into my blogging, just not as gung-ho as I had been. Baby steps, baby steps..lol

Thank you all again.

love,
Mags

Amanda said...

Oh Mags, I hope you are alright! You are such a sweetie, I would miss you so if you left forever, so you aren't allowed. LOL! :) HUGS to you and if you need to talk, feel free to bend my ear :)
