LEAVE OF ABSENCE

02/20/2015

in Inspire

I want to apologize to anyone who used to read Cindy’s Little Black Book on the regular.  I had a MAJOR leave of absence.  If you read my blog before then you knew that my father was diagonsed with cholangiocarcinoma during the summer of 2013.  His disease took about a year to take its toll before he finally passed away in August 2014.

Even though I was still blogging during the beginning months of 2014, it finally became too much to handle by the end of his disease.  I stopped blogging about 2 months before he passed away because it felt like we were in and out of the hospital everyday.  I decided to focus on my family at this time and take a leave of absence from The Black Book.

Anyone who has experienced a loss of this nature may understand my need to take the time to mourn and reflect on this experience.  I feel as though I will never entirely end my mourning and remembrance of my father.  But I also know it’s healthy to pour my energies into positive things such as blogging because it truly does bring me joy.

I am happy to say that I’m baccccckkk!!  I’m looking forward to what 2015 will bring for Cindy’s Little Black Book!
