No, I haven't died or anything....just abandoned you all for the past 3 1/2 weeks. I had the choice between you or my family. I chose to abandon you.
You see, my husband's business has really begun to take off, which is a completely wonderful blessing from God. On the downside though, I have suddenly become a single mother of 6 children for way too many weeks out of the month as he travels.Please forgive me and accept these as my peace offering. I'm quickly learning how to handle this new change in our family dynamic. Hopefully you will get the love and attention you need as well :)
