In life..There is no brighter light than those of the beautiful souls..That have never let you lose your way..
Hi Everyone, this may be dejavu but I thought I’d let you know that after today, with great sadness I will be taking a step away from writing, I’ve tried to write while working 16 hours between two jobs but now work is picking up, so I can’t find the time anymore 😥
I also apologize for this in advance, but I will putting the blog on private. To protect the works that are still being pilfered by certain drive by individuals, I hope I will find the time to write in the future again. Thank you from my daughter and I for being such an amazing supportive family, wish you all the best in all your goals! : ) : )
*Thanks to the awesome support from everyone I’ll keep the blog open and write when things finally quiet down a few months from now (crossing fingers) thanks again! 🙂
I’m going to miss you and your work…your support has been truly amazing my friend!
I wish you all the best!!!
Much, much love and light to you beautiful soul
Thank you so much for your sweet words! I will do my best to keep up with your posts! promise 🙂
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ! ! ! DON’T GO !!!!!!!!!!!
I gotta cause i won’t be able to write or read with all these crazy hours showing up 😦
Blog will be on private though soo….send a request and i’ll approve it so you can read the ones i will be writing while away 🙂
You don’t have to post everyday ! ! Only when you have time… but remain open ! ! C’mon Andy !
It’s only until i have more free time at work though, But hearing you say this? brings a huge smile to me 🙂 ❤ ❤ x
No,Andy, it just can’t be that easy. I mean, I agree with renx. If it’s not too late, you don’t have to just up and cancel your blog page. I mean, keep it open, and when you have the free time, come on here and we’ll all still be here, awaiting your comments and posts. Bloggers have to be patient. Come on, I made a friend and you’re about to leave, that’s not cool . . . 🙂
Okie okie mmmm gimme a few days to keep some posts open and some adjustments to the blog 🙂
I just feel guilty if I continue to publish posts and barely have the time to read everyone else’s 😦
Then just do it when you have the time . . . ! You have to keep a balance, otherwise you’re going to burn out!
oof am already feeling it, don’t know how long i can keep the pace :-\
I suppose you’ll know when you’ve had enough . . . 🙂 until then, we’ll just wait.
You are so sweet 🙂 🙂
Don’t! We’ll miss you.
I have a full time job…am a full time wife n mom….and am part of a large extended family of friends. .. yet find the minutes to write…you will too.
At least don’t close down…decrease the frequency.
And if not…all the very very best. You’ve been very supportive
mmm..! I will try to keep it open after making some adjustments to the blog then, Don’t know how often I can read everyone’s blogs though 😦 my second job won’t even let me check messages in between 😦
That’s ok…. it’s a great blog..u have spent hours nurturing it… don’t stop…just do it at ur pace…there’s no pressure frm anyone
I will give it a try then 🙂 Thank you so much! 🙂
Nooo, why don’t you just keep it like this and post occasionally? We will still be here that way! Best wishes for you, Andy! :))
With so much cheerful sweet support I just may, thank you so much! I apologize in advance if I miss your posts 😦 the app doesn’t refresh the ones I missed 😦
You don’t need to apologize. Just keep writing as it suits. ❤ Have a great time.
I’ll do my best! will be reading in between the coffee breaks too, Thank you 🙂 🙂
Best of luck! I definitely have been there in the past, but the awesome thing about writing is that it always finds its way back to you again somehow. I’m sure you’ll be back, especially since I know that it’s always when I don’t have the time or resources to do it that I end up writing the most. Take care.
I’m hoping to be back again soon 🙂 it feels so weird to not write as its been a daily routine for so long, but you are right! I may instinctively start writing here again out of the blue lol 🙂
You will be dearly missed! Wish you all the best in your creative life and hope to see you back here soon enough. Big hug x
I hope so too, keep in touch? 🙂 contact info is on the upper tabs 🙂
Yes, definitely! I’ll note them down. Will you be taking your blog offline or will the site still be open?
I decided I will keep the blog open while I’m away, I have put away a number of posts though, so that I can do a little more work with them in between my breaks 🙂
Be well and take care of your daughter.
Thank you Kim!
So sad!! I’ve actually been struggling to find time to write since our school year started, but writing is my passion. I need to write down my thoughts; otherwise, they will infect my entire body. Having said that, I think I came to realize that I am now a night time blogger as opposed to a day time blogger (if there is even such a category ha ha)!
Anyway, you’ll be missed! Blessings on both you and your daughters path 🙂
Sorri! I found your message in the spam section for some reason. I been thinking about writing in the evening too, but by the time I get back it will already be at 1am and by then I need to head in for another start to the next day 😦
By the way, I think I just spammed everyone with over 50 messages by accident, Soooo very sorry 😦
Ugh! Why is life so demanding!? How about blogging 1-2 times a week? A month? Trying to figure out solutions to keep you and your encouraging/funny videos on my feed! I do read them; sorry if I don’t comment as often as I should 😦
Oh and by the way, you didn’t flood my message inbox. I think the way it works is-in WordPress that is-it only notifies the person you are replying to 🙂
I’ll see if I can squeeze in some time on the weekends, when I can finally catch a breather. I may even just come on right back if work becomes too much, I’ll try my best and thank you for your sweet support 🙂
Happy to hear I didn’t flood your mailbox whew! WP can be such a pain at the worst times 😠
We’ll miss you! But you do what you need to do, what’s best for you and your daughter! Good luck and I hope you get a chance to make your dreams come true! 🙂
Thank you Ana! will do my best to read while I’m on the hiatus 😊
Andy The very fact I didn’t comment the moment I read this was for two reasons ….
Firstly I was shocked and too sad to react
Secondly I thought you must be playing prank to see how your friends and well wishers would react to it.
U know by now how much we all care for u. Andy don’t go for I will miss you so much. You have been the first one to comment on my all posts. Always been supportive.
I have fallen back on you for all querries and got immense inspiration frm u. Hey don’t close it down. Keep visiting us once in a while Andy. Its so sad. I m sure you will work out something.
Hi Hi! A few weeks ago, I announced that I was going on Hiatus and for a lil while I did and noticed all my kind readers still visited and it inspired me to keep writing, but yesterday I checked my upcoming schedule and noticed that I will be making some serious overtime.
But, At the cost of not being able to write so that’s why I’m now deciding between shutting down or leave it as is, I did tuck away some of my best posts for now I though as I’ve found people copying my words as their own 😦
I’ll still be doing my best to keep up with everyone’s posts though!
Sure Andy, it will be so nice to see you smiling in the comment box. Your smilies are so cute.
Thank you! I’ll definitely be stopping by 😊
Good luck and come back.
Thank you Martha 🙂
😦 😦 😦
Sori! I’ll try to send you a bucket of chocolate ice cream 🙂
Still, I am sad. 😦
It’ll quiet down at work soon enough and I’ll be back at it again 😊😊
Very sad news, Andy. You are such a positive presence and will be missed. But best of luck to you.
I hope to be back soon, think I’ll leave the blog open but just not as active as before. Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂
Sad to hear about this, but work is more important and you need to have a life of your own. This is understandable !
Ya, I am doing what I can for my daughter 🙂
You’ll be missed that’s for sure! But I also believe that you’d come back any time soon… 🙂
We understand priority comes first, just take all the time you needed dear…. and we’ll be just right here to welcome you back…. mmmwahhhh
Thank You Dolly! I love love your new gravatar by the way! mwaaah! 😊
Aw, so sweet of you Andy, Thanks for the compliment… See, I miss you already, hehehe 😆
Come back soon! mmmwah, mmmwah, mmmwah 🙂
I’ll certainly try! mwah! 😙
No worries. Have a good rest and continue writing when you have the time
I hope I’ll have the chance 🙂
Oh, I am sorry to hear this, Andy; what a great shame. You will be missed.
Thank you Alienora..! I tucked away some posts and will leave the blog open for now, then see when I can write again 🙂
Sooooo very sad:( if I make enough sad faces, will you visit sometime:) I will truly miss you and your lovely comments, peace and love to you and catch you when you get lonely and miss us:( Kim
I will absolutely visit! I just don’t have time to write anymore is all, heck whenever I’m not writing I’ll be catching up on zzzzz’s 🙂
Andy, I an many more like me will miss your sensitive insight and vision. Best of luck for all your endeavors.
Thank you and have an awesome week ahead! 🙂
Lovely Father that you are. Take care of your sweet self.
Thank you! I also tossed a ton of posts into private but left a good portion of original posts to leave the blog open with. Will be so busy through the entire hockey season though oof
Aha! Now the real truth comes out.
Ya, cause I work the warehouse + distribute the deliveries plus security and first aid. None of which allow me to take my phone out 😦
Not sure if you got my previous comment? I’m trying to figure out if I am even able to comment on WordPress at all!
In case you didn’t receive it, I said, I would be sad if you left, but totally understand
Make sure you still keep writing though… It’s who you are! 😀 take care of yourself! Will pester you on Facebook later. :p
Pls do! send me a request and I’ll add you right away 😀
Hmm I can’t seem
To Find you! 😮
toss me an email at email@example.com with your FB email address if you like and I’ll add you 😊
Andy – you will be missed but quite understand your situation. Some days there simply aren’t enough hours in a day, let alone days in a week.Take care and we all look forward to your return to the blog world in perhaps a few months. Jx
I hope so, soon as the hockey season is over I may have more time again to come back, hopefully with everyone still here 🙂
Will do my best to read blogs still though! 🙂
Thats sad! 😦
You re so supportive and i appreciate your presence around here you know,
at least its not forever right? At least, i understand what it feels like to be chocked up with all sortta stuffs!
I hope things get calmer soon, it’ll be nice to have you back!
Hey, take a break sometime, dont be a workaholic! Or you wanna loose a tooth?? Lol.
I wish you the best honestly ❤ 🙂
Thank you 🙂 I will try to read from time to time, between coffee breaks and stuff and yep! I promise I won’t become a workaholic, otherwise I will turn into a purple minion and rant like crazy here lol 😛
I support whatever you need to do. I know how hard it is to balance everything so I feel for you. If you need anything don’t hesitate to give me a holler on Facebook. Or just poke me now and again so I know you’re doing okay. 😉
Will do! thank you so much Jackie! You are always so good to me 🙂
You’re going to be missed by many, Andy!
I enjoyed reading your daily prompt entries – hope to see you back again in the future 🙂

Take care, Andy and take heart in making the best choices for you and your daughter. We’ll still be here when you’re ready to step back in. 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂 🙂
I’m sad for me and the “Andy community,” but I’m happy for you, Andy. Such levels of multitasking that you were doing are superhuman. And so, I support you in your endeavors, lifewise, blogwise, online, and offline. You sound like a fantastic dad and “real life” friend, FWIW, and I’ll revisit your online home whenever you’re ready. Thank you for opening the doors to us all and much success and happiness to you and your DD in the meantime! [P.S. Shame on you, copyright infringers!]
Thank you so much Leigh for your awesome support! “Andy community” I like that 🙂 🙂
Ya, sorry about a number of posts missing, those are the ones pilfered left right ‘n center by talentless plagiarists, I have to hide them for the next 5 months when I come back and transfer the copyrights to a more solid source 🙂
Hey Andy 🙂 Although I don’t comment often I do read your posts which I enjoy very much. I will miss them but I understand why you want to do this and I wish you all the best ! I’m sure you’ll be back soon with lots of wonderful and inspiring words 🙂 Just send a message from time to time so we all now you’re ok 🙂
Thank you so much Cristina! I will definitely try 😊😊
it’s au revoir and not adieu, so see you when you are ready. Maybe you can still stop by and say hello once in a while. Cheers to you and best with your daughter.
I will most certainly do my best to visit every chance I get! 😊
That really is SAD and you will be missed! I just hope you won’ t disappear completely and we will have a touch of your thoughts shared on your blog now and then. On the other hand – I do understand how life gets when work is piling up and the day has just as many hours as it does…priorities are needed to get through. Fingers crossed and hugs for you, Andy!
Hugs Ese! thank you! I will try to post here and there, maybe on the weekends. My apologies in advance for missing your posts 😦
Oh, no worries about that, Andy! You just take care of yourself and, of course, your lovely daughter.
Thank you! 🙂
Good for you for making that time for your daughter and for yourself! I am most grateful for all the support you have shared and hope you take good care of yourself in between those 16 hour marathons! May God bless and protect you, like a dear brother to me. Take good care and jia yow!!
Take care of yourself. Hope you are able to return at some point. On a positive note, it’s good to know you are one of the lucky ones who still has work.
Wishing you all the very best in your endeavours, Andy. You will be really missed here. Take care my friend. 🙂
Thank you! 😊😊
I wish you well, Andy. We’ll be right here when you return. 🙂
Thank you Imelda 😊😊
Oh no, I just found your site right as you’re leaving! But with 16 hr. days between 2 jobs that’s more than understandable. Best of luck in all of your endeavors, take care!!
Thank you for the follow and welcome to my blog Zachary 🙂 I may start writing again two weeks from now, after the first bump of my second job lol
Thanks for the welcome Andy! Good luck with 2nd job and finding some time for you!!
You will be missed, Andy! But I’m glad you’re putting yourself first and taking care of other things. Good for you!! Take care till then!!
Thank you Christina! 😊😊

Thank you Konstantina 🙂 I am hoping to be back by next week since I took a two week vacation from my primary job so that I could focus more on my second one 🙂
