Closing Down Shop

DSCN1805

There have been some times since I started this blog in 2011, when writing a post has made the difference between utter despair and life for me.  There have been other times when it was just plain fun.  I have treasured the sense of connection and community that blogging made possible with folks literally around the world.  WordPress provides neat statistical information about a blog so as I write this last blog, I know that there were over 18,500 views of my blog during its ‘lifetime’, that people from 101 countries stopped in to ‘visit’ and I posted 354 times including this one.

Now, my life is heading in a very different direction and it is time to stop.  After I settle in Alabama, I have some other writing projects I am looking forward to immensely.  It may be that there will be another time when the call of blogging tugs again.  In the by and by, may all grace, goodness and mercy be with you and yours.  Thank you.

  1. It is been my pleasure to be one of 18,500 folks that got to read your blog. It inspired me, made me laugh and at times made me cry. I can’t wait to hear all about your next adventure. Xoxoxo SAM

  2. Yours is the only blog I take time to follow. I will miss your insightful writing, and your beautiful photos that remind us to stop and be thankful for both the grand and tiny things that surround us – the first step in a good retreat, right? For a bonus, your blog has provided a lazy way for this reader to stay connected to you and Sherod and Maria. So now I will have to do that the old fashioned way, with a note or call to your new home in Lowndesboro. Thank you for opening up your life, and teaching all of us how to handle the ups and downs that come along every day.

  3. Rosita, I have had the pleasure of reading your blog in several occasions this last year. Hope to read more soon.

  4. I will miss your blog, Rosa. I know it was your experience you were relating here, but so often it was my story I found. Your struggles for strength and solace, your delight in major and small joys, and your unrelenting search not only gave me a way to companion you along your way but also made me feel companioned during an especially difficult time. Thank you. God go with you and bless you richly in your new endeavors. Un beso y un fuerte abrazo.
