I had to step back.
A combination of a big day in my life, several days of lingering illness (I'm finally starting to feel better), a birthday and "too much social media overload" made me step back for a couple of days.
I shut off the computer yesterday (except for maintaining my blog), turned my back on Facebook, and only did one brief email check. Today, I checked email only because I was expecting some big news in relation to a longtime friend who is battling cancer, and stayed off of Facebook except for a couple of brief visits.
Guess for me, that is being unplugged.
I will return to normal but not quite yet. Tonight I am just going to enjoy the evening and catch up with some (hard copy) reading. I will continue to blog, but don't expect anything extensive for a couple of more days.
And if you are wondering why the balloons....my friend in Brooklyn knows why. I am so thrilled because she is....in....Remission.
The big R word.
The joy is tempered because I know others who are still fighting that nasty, unfair fight. But today, this dread disease has suffered one setback and I hope there will be more and more setbacks for The Big C. I hope, and pray, that one day no one will ever have to fight this fight, ever again.
Dear friend, tonight I celebrate with you.
