An Update

Uncategorized / Tuesday, August 29th, 2017
2017 has been year of challenges…. And growth too 🙂 
I know I went silent for quite a while. I am sorry for being gone for so long… But I became almost like an empty shell. I was working only on projects that allowed me to be bland, silent, soulless and disconnected. 
My family has lost two loved ones this year, and my mom’s dog passed (he lived with my sister in Jamaica). 
Some relationships have been broken, some made stronger. Also, my life on a personal level turned upside down… But I am learning so much about myself and this precious life we are gifted with.
Thank you all so much for your lovely thoughts, comments and support. I really missed the wonderful community of sister- friends we have here. I missed sharing inspiration and being inspired by you as well.
A thought that has helped me to feel better…
‘I don’t know a strong person who doesn’t have a rough past.’
Looking forward to catching up and visiting you 🙂
Also, my heart goes out to all who are affected by the weather conditions. My mom lives in Houston, Texas.
How have you been doing?

  3. So sorry for your losses and upheavels in your life. It seems like when life is on an even keel, it just doesn't last very long… I wish it would. I did notice you had been gone for quite awhile and was wondering if I was just somehow missing your posts. I hope you are on an upward turn in your life and that it will return to you some comfort and joy very soon. Marilyn

  4. Summer, Sorry to read of the loses. Hope your mom is doing well. It's scary that much flooding and damages. I liked the quote about strong people. I cried about my life growing up, being so hard and deprived….but there are times now that I realize I am strong because of my childhood. Blessings to you sweet girl, xoxo, Susie

  5. Oh Summer, what a year. And to know that your mom is in danger in Houston doesn't make things any easier now. You're right about strength building us, but that doesn't make it fun, happy or easy. Sending many wishes that your family healing continues amidst the loss and that your mum stays safe.

  6. Ah, so happy to see you back! I'm sorry for the losses of family and also for the personal upsets. "What doesn't kill us makes us stronger." 🙂
    Praying that your mother is safe. My cousins live in the Houston area (and south) and they are ok.

  7. Summer, I have been wondering whatever happened to you…and finally, the atom thingy updated…I am so sorry for whatever your going through, just know, and I hope you don't mind me saying this, but I will keep you in prayer.

    I will have to play catch up with your blog, smiles. AND btw, I love your new blog look, smiles

  8. I am so pleased that you are back again! You have been in thought many times, wondering how you were, what had happened to have you disappear and then I saw your comment on my post!!! For some reason this post of yours and your later ones haven't come through to me, I'll sort that right now.
    I am sorry to read that you have been having difficult times in your life and now you will be worrying about your Mom in Houston, I pray that she is safe and well.
    Your new blog is very swish and bright – love it.
