To all my dear Friends.......

Today, this Gypsy do not have enough words to even begin to tell you how incredibly much I missed you all......

This past month and a half was an extremely difficult time for me in so many levels of my life........I just had to take time-out to get past deadlines, work through some major things, make decisions, heal and deal. There were so many times that I found myself in front of the computer.....just not ready. But oh boy, how I missed it......

It is officially Spring here in South Africa and new life is blossoming all around me ......
.....and this new life is not just blossoming in nature .....I became the proud grandma of 2 beautiful little boys this past week. Those of you who follow my blog for some time, may remember that both my son and daughter told us on the same day that they are expecting ...........and both the little one`s were born this week

I thank you all for your mails, messages and wonderful wonderful wishes....you have no idea how much that meant to me!!!!!! Once again I saw what an amazing world this blogging community is and how many wonderful and dear friends I made in less than a year. I apologise for not responding earlier, but I trust that you will understand. I truly appreciate you all and will personally get back to each one of you.
So...this is Gypsy....back from hiding.....not yet whole........but better every day.............

Gypsy, I just returned to the online world, too. For similar reasons (stressful times at work, compounded by computer problems). I understand too well.

I hope that this note finds each day getting better for you. Enjoy your springtime, and your beautiful new grandbabies!

Love to you,

~SH
