Hi! This is Shelly's husband, Mark. Shelly asked me to post an explanation as to why she has not been active on her blog lately. Shortly after her last post, Shelly's chronic eye condition flared up, and she has been unable to engage in activities that strain and irritate this ailment. Although she misses sharing and interacting with her blogging friends, she will not be able to resume posting until her health improves. We pray that it will be very soon.
