Bye for now

Hi Friends 😄


A quick update.. I was sick last week when I was diagnosed with gallstones and went to the doctors on Sunday and now have pneumonia. I'm at home from work resting a lot but I've made a few decisions . I need to make myself better,  I need to concentrate on my health for my kids and my grandkids  , so I have sadly stepped down from two of my design teams. I will no longer be on City  Crafter design team, or Paper Sweeties. It's a sad decision to make but I have a lot of stress in my life right now and I need to concentrate on me for the moment . As much as I love those two Design Teams its the deadlines that add to my already full plate. I want to be able to create when I can....no stress for now.  I wanted to let you know as my blog will be more silent for a few ,  but my love for paper crafts will bring me back when I'm well and healthy again ! Thank all of you girls for all of your support and well wishes! I have made such wonderful friends and I love this community that we have ! I will visit your blogs soon when I can  , I'm sure I'll be laying around healing ! See you soon friends !!

My heart goes out to you, Char! I'm sorry to hear that you are sick with pneumonia, too! You are so right with taking time out to take care of yourself! I'll miss your awesome creations, but hope that you get well very soon! I just sent a card out in the mail today to you. I hope it brings a smile to your face! Take good care, Char...hugsssss!:-)

Please take card of yourself, Char. I completely understand needing to take a break. Having just gallstones or pneumonia by themselves is hard enough...I can't imagine trying to deal with both at the same time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Feel better soon!! Hugs :)

So sorry to hear of your illnesses, and especially that you're stepping away from something I know you love doing.
Char, my email is: nancypenir@comcast.net.
Can I have your address?
Would love to send a card (or 2!) from Central CA. (down the highway!)
Glad you're not taking something as serious as pneumonia lightly. Do rest and remember we all love you! Looking forward to meeting you at Paper Garden someday!

Char,

I was so sad to hear that you have been sick. You do have to take care of yourself. Your mental and physical health should be your main concern.

Saying prayers for you and looking forward to your return when you are feeling better.
Carol

Oh my goodness. Painful I'm sure and definitely not to mess around with. Take good care of yourself. We'll all be here waiting for you. (Absolutely lovely MMCC card, BTW). Hugs.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Char, I'm so sorry to hear that you have been going through such pain for so many weeks! Now, at least, you have a diagnosis for both problems and you can be treated and brought back to good health. Of course you made the right decision to concentrate on yourself right now and get healthy again for your family first and then, in due time, for us. I will add you to my prayer list and be thinking of you!! Huge (but gentle) hugs!! Darnell

Julia Aston said...

MaryH said...

Charlene, So sorry to hear you've got more health problems. Getting well has to take priority over blogging & blog surfing. Do rest as you can, because pneumonia is nothing to take lightly.Your immune system was probably compromised already with the gall stone issue. Don't fret about visiting, but love it when you can. We'll all be right here when you feel you can blog again. See ya when you can come back & have fun. Big Hugs.

Audrey Pettit said...

So completely understand, my friend! The most important thing is for you to take care of yourself at this moment, as you have lots of people who need you to be healthy. I'm so sorry to hear about the pneumonia, on top of everything else, and I so hope you'll get to feeling better soon!

alexandra s.m. said...

Oh Dear! Take good care of yourself!
I'm sending lots of hugs and I'll be thinking of you!
I wish you a prompt recovery!

Greta said...

You will be missed, but I'm glad you're making the decision to take care of yourself, Char. Hope you're much better soon!

Hello everyone, hope you having a nice day, am really happy about
this, so i want the whole world to know about what Dr. White
(doctorwhitespellshrine@gmail.com) did for me and family. I was having a happy and peaceful marriage with two kids, for 5 years. My husband was just too lovely and caring. But it all came crashing when my husband started neglecting me and coming home very late at night. I never knew he was having an affair with another lady, i don't know what she did to him, but he stop paying attention to me and started neglecting me and the kids. It was really devastating and confusing. I complained to a friend of mine, she introduced me to one Dr. White, who helped her some time ago, though i doubted, because i never believed in spellcasting, but because i was desperate, i gave it a
try. contacted him, told him everything, he assured to help me save my
husband and my marriage, that i just have to provide him with some
items to break the stronghold the other lady had on my husband, i did,
and voila!!!! My hubby came home sobbing, begged for forgiveness. Am just so happy that he helped me saved my marriage, thanks to Dr.
White.Thanks to Dr. White. You can contact him via
