I just wanted to update to let you know why I've not been posting MCR news as fast and frequently. I know many of you have come to see this blog as a useful source for information. Things will return to normal, and I'm still keeping a pulse on the MCR news world, but-- for right now --I need to be with my family.
Those of you who follow me elsewhere have probably seen stories I've shared about my grandmother (Meme, as I have called her since I was a child). If not, here's the general back-story of the past 4 years and what brought everything to this point.
My Meme is the very reason I started writing. She would sit at a typewriter when I was too young to write and would transcribe the stories I dictated to her at the time. She taught me to paint and always encouraged me creatively. Without her, I don't know if I would be brave enough to even try at a career in writing.
Unfortunately, her health has declined severely over the past two weeks, and it is only a matter of time before she's gone.
I am spending as much time as possible away from the computer and at her side.
The past few days have been some of the very hardest of my life, and I know that worse ones are to come, but sometimes writing comes as a relief; so, I'm still here, I'm just being quiet for now.
Thank you all so much for your support. I will update whenever I find the strength.
