A Brief Note of Thanks

I want to take a moment to thank all of my subscribers and readers for your kind messages of support over the last seven weeks. The Masses, rosaries, novenas, prayers, and kind gestures have meant a great deal to me and my family. Your charitable actions will not be forgotten.

My Mother was seriously ill for the past few years. I did not write about this, or talk about this openly, whether in print or on the air; some have expressed surprise that I did not share this with my readers. Given the outpouring of kindness from you, perhaps I should have.

However, I did not do so for the simple reason that it was not my illness to share. I respected my Mother’s privacy enough to only speak privately about what was happening to a select few. Thus, you should not expect to read anything further from me regarding this subject at present. Perhaps one day I may change my mind, but the circumstances would have to be very particular.

In the meantime, I am also not quite ready to start writing again. I know I need to do so, but I also need time to reflect on how and why I write, and whether some changes are warranted. To that end, I’m likely going to hold off on posting again until I return from the CNMC in Atlanta, hosted by SQPN. If you happen to be attending – and you should definitely be there – I hope you will come over and say hello.

My most grateful thanks!

  1. Last night as I was drifting off to sleep you came to mind with the question, “I wonder how William is doing?” Lo and behold I open my mail and there you were. I have and will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. She must have been an amazing woman to have given us all such a fine young man as you! May she rest in the loving arms of her Savior.

  2. So happy to hear from you! It is good to take time to reflect – you are so very busy. Your blogs are always so interesting and informative (and admittedly, your views always coincided with mineūüėČ). I miss them and selfishly wait with patience for your return.

  3. I have missed your posts and hope you find your “voice” again soon. I understand your loss and need to re-evaluate your reasons for writing as I am going through the same feelings since the loss of my “little” sister earlier this year. It is hard to find words these days – but I remember how much my sister liked to read my posts – and I’m sure your Mother did too. You will write again – and you will be surprised how your memories of your Mother will help you with those writings.
