I’m taking a bit of a break this week in my regular blogging. So please don’t worry because I’m not posting each weekday as is typical of me.

My focus now needs to be on other writing projects with deadlines in a few days. Those require my near full attention. I fell a bit behind when my father-in-law recently died and I couldn’t focus so much on writing. I still feel emotionally-drained from that and other challenges.

Be assured that I will be back soon to consistent weekday postings.

Thank you for continuing to follow Minnesota Prairie Roots, even when I pause briefly. I appreciate and value each of you and hope you are well.

    take a deep breath, compose yourself. Not everybody understands that writing is not easy. Anybody can write drivel but real writing takes time and effort and makes it worth reading.

    While I will miss your daily posts, please take as much time as you need. You and your husband need time to heal and to care for one another. Life has become a roller coaster the last few years for many of us. You have always provided words of encouragement, pictures that bring us all beauty and wonder, and activities that get us out and about. Now in the cold, quiet time of winter, take the time you need to grieve, to reflect and to heal. The peace of the Lord be with you both.
