Taking a break

Hi to all of my book blogging buddies--

This past weekend, my husband unexpectedly passed away.  I will be taking a short time off from my blog to care for our daughter and grieve. 

But I will be back and I hope to see you all back on my blog to talk about books.

Sincerely,
Shanan the book addict

  15. Oh my, Shanan, I'm so sorry :'( I can't ever imagine what you're going through right now. I hate to even think about it. I can't imagine myself going through the same situation cos I know it would be heartbreaking and devastating. I am very sorry to hear about your loss... I pray to God that He'll continue to give you strength especially in times of lost. I know that you'll get through it and I'm sure God will never leave you no matter what. I can sense that you are a strong woman... stay safe and strong for your daughter. I am really saddened by this news... You'll need all the strength you can get, and if it means taking a break for while then do it. Relax a little, and mourn if you need to. You'll be okay someday, I can't tell when, but I pray that you will. If you need friends who can listen, we're here for you. Be assured that we're not only your TBRIC meme buddies, we can also be someone who are ready to listen. God bless you and your daughter in many ways--more so today and in the future. God never abandon His children. Just keep the faith and pray. We'll pray for you.
