Hello my sweet friends...

Wow! I cannot believe how long it has been since I've last taken time to blog. A lot has transpired, and I've been trying to find my "life-flow," if you will. In case you're wondering (as I've been questioned by several of you), I'm doing quite well. Having to adjust to some things, but doing well, non-the-less.

I've not been around the blog scene, or active on the message boards, lately, as I've been so busy with teaching and running the academy. In all honesty, I've been battling with extreme fatigue. So much so, that once I'm home from work, I've not the energy or drive to think, let alone write or converse for any period of time. The spirit is willing but the flesh...

I went to my oncologist today for my 3-month appointment, and after telling him about my struggles with lack of energy and exhaustion, he decided to do blood-work to rule out thyroid problems. He said that he honestly thinks that this, and other issues, are a result of having had such major surgery only three-months out. We are hoping that's the case. I want to feel awake and alert again. I miss my creative spirit and the energy that flows within that. So, hopefully soon, I will be back to my lively self with my perky inner spirit.

I just want you all to know that I appreciate you so much, and your encouragement over the last several months has meant the world to me. I want so badly to get back in my blogging groove, and to be back in touch with you all. If I only blog a few thoughts or nuggets of encouragement every few days, know that it's only temporary, and I'll be back to my old droning self soon.

Hope all is well with all of you!

XOXO CJ

I've thought of you often since your last post, hoping for an update on your health and to hear you were well. It's great to see a post from you again!

Don't worry about the time away from things, just stay focused on getting better. Much hugs!

I'm glad that you're doing well, despite the fatigue and I hope your doctor can figure out how to get your energy level back to normal. :-) I was thinking about you as I haven't seen you in The Written Voice lately. Glad to know that you're okay. Take care. :-)

Aw! It's so good to "hear" your voices! I hope things have been well with you.

Angela - Thanks, I do tend to worry about being away. I value and appreciate the camaraderie that comes from reading each others blogs and the input and encouragement that stems from that. And, I just darn love you gals! XOXO

Susan - I know, I've missed The Written Voice (and you)! I have to tell you that the group is AWESOME! Thank you for having it. I will be back very soon, if only here and there, until I get everything under control. BTW, how's Japan???? XOXO
