Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.                
~Author Unknown

 I feel I must apologize,
 for things I left undone,
I'm not trying to dramatize,
my remorse has just begun. (A poet I ain't!)

My sister-in-law is dying, my brother-in-law had surgery and is still not out of the woods, and my precious dog Frodo has been very, very sick. *sigh* 

I am tired,
but required
to ask your mercy,
great gramercy. (I told you I am not a poet!)

I will announce the winner of Suffocate tomorrow and please join me Monday June 11th for Phyllis's (Susanna Leonard Hill's crazy Phyllis) awesome visit at our farm. 

I'll try to do better. *Waving*


  1. Oh, Robyn,

    I had to smile at your post, but no "sorry' required - no wonder you're tired, with all that going on all around.

    Hang in there, and I'll be back for the 11th, as I am sure Phyllis' visit was a spirit lifting time on the farm!

  2. I agree with Joanna. You don't need to say sorry. I'm so sorry for all you are going through. Take care! Prayers for you and your family!

  3. Hi Robyn .. gosh so much happening - and all requiring your utmost dedication and care. I just hope all goes peacefully along its journey of life - sorry is definitely something not required here.

    But I loved the colourful aspect to your post - cheering your own spirits ..

    With many thoughts - Hilary

  4. Hi Robyn,

    So much is happening? Hugs.

    All my thoughts prayers.

  5. Don't be sorry! Family first. Prayers for you Robyn.

  6. We're sorry you're going through such a hard time! Thanks for the quick update though. Praying for you all.

  7. Oh my dear sweet Robyn, there is never a need to apologize when your family needs you. How I wish I had a long fairy wand I could wave over you and yours and *poof* all the heartache and pain away.

    I will be sending prayers of healing, prayers of peace.


  8. There's definitely no sorry required.
    You and your loved ones will be in my thoughts.


  9. No sorry required, dear bbf. My warmest wishes to your loved ones. Extra big hugs.

  10. No worries, Robyn! You have no need to apologize! Family comes first! Love and hugs to you. So sorry for all you're going through. All best wishes to you and your family.

  11. Thinking of you Robyn. Don't worry about us. We'll be here when you can be.

  12. No worries. We're here when you return. Be present for your family and don't worry about the rest. Take care of yourself. I thought I saw a comment about your family situation, but didn't want to send an email thinking it would just take your time. I'm praying for you all.

  13. Oh my, I wouldn't be sorry about staying away. There are lots of times when life is more important. Hope your family will be okay. Prayers.

  14. As everyone else has said, there's no need to apologize. Family comes first.

    Take care of yourself in the midst of all that's going on around you!

  15. Hey Girlfriend,

    I've sort of fallen off the face of the earth too, so no worries!
    Family is more important than blogging in my book. Take all the time you need :)

    What can I do for you?

  16. There's no need to apologize! Some things just take priority.

    You'll be in my thoughts!

  17. There's no need to apologize. Take care of your loved ones. You're in my thoughts. *hugs*

  18. Oh Robyn, you've got a lot going on. No apologies required. Hugs from me!


  19. Hope it all gets better for you Robyn. Hugs and prayers for your family.

  20. I'm sorry for your woes. :( Hope what can improve, does.

  21. Sweet Robyn, so much going on for you. Look at all the folks who miss you and wish you the best. I send prayers your way as well. Absolutely, family is first. Take care of those you love. God bless you.

  22. I thought you were quiet, that is terrible news. I'm so sorry to hear your sad news Robyn, *hugs* and take care. XXX

  23. Hi Robyn! No need to feel sorry. You have a lot going on right now. Family comes first. (((((HUGS)))))

  24. Hoping the best for you and your family!!!


  25. Somehow I missed this!
    I am convinced that only you, Robyn, could write poetry in the face of all kinds of hardship and manage to light a wee, flickering, candle in the darkness.



Leave me a note! :)
