Hanging In There

I had a lover's quarrel with the world.  ~Robert Frost, The Lesson for Today, 1942

I just wanted to take the time to let you know that I am still alive and kicking.  The last couple of years have been stressful ones for me.  Some of you know my troubles but many do not, and I apolagize for not explaining any further at this time.  I just have been hanging in there the best I can.  On top of everything else I recently changed job locations as well.  I work at a different library now, and I no longer have time to spend blogging and reading blogs the way I used to.  That is why I have not participated in Magpie Tales, One Shot,or Thing Tank, latley.  I did not want to post a poem and not be able to read the other poems that were linked to those sites.  I am working on getting internet at home, and then that will give me an opportunity to read and blog the way I would like.  Thank you for all for taking the time to read my blog and becoming a dear friend and encourager.  I may not be blogging, but my heart is still in it, and all the wonderful friends that I have met along the way are still in my thoughts and prayers. I promise I will be back....for now, I am just
hanging in there.

  1. Dear Carrie, sometimes life takes a heavy toll on us. The only thing you can do is hang in there like David said and know that no matter what, your blogging friends haven't deserted you.

    Be well, blogger friend.

  2. Sorry to hear that the last couple of years have been stressful. I've been in the refining fire as well. All things work for the good of those who love God. Keep hanging in there!

    P.S.
    I've wondered why you had not been blogging thanks for the update. :-)

  6. Dear Carrie,
    I have missed you, but I suppose like so many of us, I thought you were just 'stepping out' for a little while.
    I too have had to revise my time in visiting Blogs and to some extent writing also.
    I have become a grandmother recently and my dear little grandson has so much of my time!!
    Carrie, you have been a wonderful, supportive friend to me from the very beginning. I hope and pray, that you will find some time and peace to return soon with your poetic words.
    My Best Wishes, Eileen :)

  7. I have missed you. No matter what befalls you, you can pass through to the other side. Do "hand in there." I will think of you and say a prayer today.

  14. Dear Carrie,

    I am so glad to see your post. As you know, I keep looking out for you.

    Hanging in there is something well known to me. There are dark periods, cloudy, sunny, stormy and plain sailing moments interspersed. But those with their hearts and faith in the right places make it.

    Like most of us, I turn to my prayers. Fervently. And often a new idea sparks. I believe this is God showing me the way.

    Bless you Carrie, and I'll be right here waiting.
