    Please slow down and listen to your body. It’s time to stop and really think about what you want from your life – both for you and your family. Pleasing everyone around us doesn’t make us better – they will take more than we can give. Save some life for yourself please.

    Jennifer, Things have been very hard and I know none of us ever thought we would be in this position. Over the last 6 month, I have gained weight, have insomnia, and now have high blood pressure. I keep looking at my quilt tops and wondering if I’m ever going to finish them. You are right. We need to put ourselves first. Some things we just can’t change. So, I’m taking my quilt tops off the wall, and getting my sewing kit out. We must do what we love, for ourselves.

    We’re hoping the best for you and your family.

    Give yourself time to find what is right and what feels right for you and your family. I’m glad you are able to reflect and know you need something else. My best to you :)

    i have faith that soon you will be like one of those glowing lanterns. i am sure what you are experiencing is all part of a grand process you will look back on one day and write about. it’s so hard to live through a major transition but you will be stronger in the end. take care!

    Long time subscriber, first comment. I grew up in Grand Haven and my dad now lives in Grand Rapids. I wish I’d known about this, because it would have been worth the trip. However, your stunning picture just brought it to life. Thank you!!!! I’m only in Ann Arbor, but it feels worlds away. This made me feel like home.

    I feel you on so many levels with this post! I’ve had hives on and off for months and my acne is OUT of control. Too much stress! I feel like I have my hand in so many different projects that I’m not doing really WELL at any of them! Anyway, all that just to say I’m sorry and I know how you feel, at least a little.
    Also, if the project you’re thinking of putting yourself into is the magazine, then wahoo! I love the idea, ha! I seriously love this little magazine; it’s a bright spot in my day when it gets published and I refer back to the previous issues often. If you ever feel the urge, I would definitely be interested in buying a kid-friendly version! Not that the main magazine isn’t kid-friendly, but you know, one that’s specifically geared for a kid audience. I think there’s a bit of an empty spot in the kid magazine market and a CS Kids would be awesome!!
