Dear Dear Hub Friends

Updated on March 18, 2013

Hello Sweet Friends

I think spring is in the air.

I need refurbishing...Rest..

but I need to work too..

I have been on the hub for over a year now.. and I love it.. .. But.....

I realize I have a lot to do..

I am working on my second novel and my children's books..

Plus there are a lot of personal things I have got to get done.

So sadly I am saying I will be gone for a couple of weeks maybe more.. I do not know how long.

I will come back and comment every once in a while.

I need to regroup.

I need to breath

This is not good bye

it is see you later..

I ask for prayers

I pray for all of you... and your endeavors and your growth in your lives and I pray you all publish your dreams come true.

I know there are lots of love here, and I thank you for that..

Many blessings to you all

      Hi Dearest Debbie,

      I just saw this as, I too, have been on a little vacation for the past couple of weeks from HubPages. I am working on a novel and a series of children's books too. But I will be popping in from time to time, but I have not written a poem to let anyone know, just posted a little somethine on my profile page. I hope this comment goes through,as this is beautiful and sweet, and I just love that photo!!! You're the best. I am anxious to see what the Lord has planned this year for all too! Love you girlfriend, Faith Reaper

      Dearest faithful friend - I love that picture of you! You're such a cutie. I hope you'll be back sooner than later but of course, I understand I'll be right here, 'holding down the fort' - writing and reading hubs in the meantime. So if you do drop by - I'll love to see your sweet face!! Have fun - - and don't do anything I wouldn't! hehe I have to admit that living is fun to me.

      I'm not anticipating a vacation any time soon, unless maybe to the ranch. But I am formulating dreams of a European cruise to wonderful ports of call - or river cruises on the magnificent rivers over there. Dreaming doesn't cost much! haha. Maybe I could 'report on' such a dream vacation in a hub. That would be fun! And I do believe in 'affirmations'!

      see you soon!

      OK Deborah (Deborah Brooks) -

      I hope that you will be able to enjoy being away from us - but, please be assured that no one is going to be missing you around here. Nope. Instead we are all going to be hanging around the place, just waiting for you to knock off all of that other stuff and get back with those of us who might, by some chance, be missing you. 'Hear what I'm sayin'? :-)

      I think HubPages gets overwhelming from time to time. I left for a month as I didn't feel direction. And sometimes I feel like slowing down and I do. We will think about you while you are regrouping and redoing. Be well and take care...

      Yes indeed Debbie great timing too for spring cleaning. Have a wonderful Hub vacation, I recently took a 3 month vacation from it all, and just got back like 2 weeks back, and its been rough to get back into making communications with folks, but its been a good come back thus far.

      I plan a entire summer vacation from hubpages as well, and its imperative to take such breaks I do believe to regroup for sure.

      Love ya Debbie and we will miss you, but will see you soon! enjoy!

      Understandable, Debbie! It does take a toll on us. I'll be cutting back ever so slowly in the next couple months. I have discovered that there is life outside of HubPages. Who would have ever guessed? LOL

      Enjoy your break and get lots done. You will be missed but I look forward to your return.
