After A Long Absence

I’ve been away from my blog for a while. Spent the summer with the grandkids. I’m a senior citizen and they wear me out, but they are great fun. Choosing between them and blogging–no contest!

I am currently in NC, getting ready to attend the wedding of one of my best friend’s daughters. I have another wedding to attend in KY in about three weeks. I seldom get to see my friends so this is a special time.

My husband and I used to live here many years ago and our former pastor nearly died of pancreatitis a year ago. When we visited last September we happened to be at the church on his first day back in the pulpit. What a blessing that was. Seeing him last Sunday, without the wheelchair, looking more robust (had gained to a healthy weight), and his voice as strong as ever, was a thrill to our souls. I was able to share pictures of our grandkids with he and his wife. I must put in a plug here for my favorite pastor, John Hill, Jr. and the church he has pastored for thirty years: Hughes Grove Baptist Church, in Thomasville, NC. Though we have been away for most of those thirty years, we are welcomed each time we come back, and the love and enthusiasm of the people is as strong as ever. We also really enjoy the teaching, preaching, and singing.

I will try to post pictures of the wedding this Saturday.

A note to all of my friends: I have deleted my Facebook account. Someone keeps cloning me and I’m tired of spending so much time trying to fight it. I will keep writing and using my other social media connections.

I intend to get back to working on my novel between now and the next wedding. If any of you have any suggestions about how to develop an interesting newsletter, please let me know. I’m hungry for feedback. If you email me regarding this post, please use the subject blog so I don’t delete it. I have over 2,000 emails so the ones that don’t reach out and grab me are being deleted for now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FaceBook Woes

I am tired. I am weepy. I have less storage space in my motorhome than what was available in the travel trailer. Haven’t had time or energy to do any real writing in weeks. And now. . .someone wants to steal my friends and family on FB. It was reported that someone was trying to impersonate me and FB shut down that account, but apparently that person or someone else has opened up another one, sending friend requests to everyone on my list. I guess I need to just get off of social media. So much for my writer’s platform. I don’t know if I should cancel my blog as well.

I am thankful for the friends I have made from blogging. There so many sweet people out there. It only takes one to create havoc and wipe out a writer’s dream, and take away the ability to see photos of your friends and loved ones who don’t live close by.

I’ll give this one more week, and if there is no solution to this, then I will remain in the background and will just stick with writing alone.
