goodbye. for now.

Hello, all.

I am not going to be posting here any longer. At least for quite some time. Thank you for your loyal readership, your kind comments, and your interest in my life.

I will be gathering up some of my posts for my own personal records, but in the future I think I will be deleting this blog.

I wish you all the best.

With love from Pittsburgh,
Laura

UPDATE: (8/28/09) I have deleted most of the posts from this blog (there were almost 200) and have kept only my few favorites. I will return to this blog someday, but I don't know when. I have experienced a tremendous loss in my life, and those of you familiar with me and my blog will be able to see what's missing. For those of you who are not, just know that the person I love most in the world hurt me deeply and left my life. I ache. I weep. I feel a hole. But someday, with God's grace, I'll be whole again. And I'll return here, to write anew.

14 lovely bits o' feedback.:

Noooooo! It seems that so many people are quitting their blogs lately. Not you, too?

Please let me know if you start another one. Pretty please:)

It's been a job reading your posts. Good luck with your future endeavors.

We missed you today, but we understand. I will be waiting if and when you decide to blog again. Hope to talk to you soon.

Ditto... wish you wouldn't stop. I enjoy reading your thoughts and your take on the World.

By the way, saw the commercial film crew setting up, but didn't see you! I guessed you were probably in "make-up" when I walked by. How did it go? We can't wait to hear about it.

And another ditto! So sorry to see the blog go. I hope to see you and chat soon (I meant to stop by Friday, but the day was insanely busy)--hopefully I'll see you Monday. Lots and lots of love to you, sweetie.

I also respect your decision but I will say that it was always so helpful to me to write on my blog during the difficult times. It was very cathartic and helped me work through my emotions. Plus you realize that you are not alone. Please reconsider. This blog is supposed to be about your life - the good and the bad. It makes you a whole person. All the people who read love you so much. I do!!

Becca Rae said...

Whatever your decision, I respect it. I've been thinking about and praying for you often...my family is going through a very challenging time right now, different of course from what your situation is, but still a very painful time...I can relate to your pain right now and i can underestand why you'd want to delete this blog...either way, i am grateful to have been part of this and your life. take care hun.
Love,
Becca

Ah L. I feel like a horrible person. I have taken a huge sabbatical from Blogland myself and I completely missed this. I feel like quite possibly you needed some love and support and I wasn't here to give it, even from cyber-world.

My hugs and prayers for healing. I will miss you profoundly.

innocentvision said...

I understand your decision because I understand what you're going through because I'm going through a very similar pain myself. Why is it that when we're going through the things in life that make us feel the most alone in the world we tend to shut off to it? Please consider still posting. I'm being selfish but your words of the joys and loves of your life were inspiring and I'm sure I'll find the words of what you're going through just as inspiring and maybe even healing, and maybe the act of writing and interacting with others will bring you the inspiration and hope you need to be whole again. Either way I wish you the best. It's a horrible feeling and I'm sorry for your loss. Try to take solace in the fact that you know what you can feel and of what is possible. That's helping me, well at least @ this minute of this day. Take care.

I'm so sorry to hear you're hurting. I'll be sorry to not read your beautifully composed posts anymore. Take care. I'll have to stop by your office and say hi sometime soon.

Piglet: "Pooh?"

Pooh: "Yes Piglet?"

Piglet: "Nothing. I just wanted to be sure of you."

I am still checking on you, just to be sure.
