Bear With Me ~ A Personal Note from Cheryl

In my big sister's arms.
I reported a couple of weeks ago about my older sister's health and we have recently been told to enjoy the "days" we have with her as the time draws nearer and nearer.  I am struggling to stay focused and keep up with this site and I know I will be making mistakes or missing things now and again. I ask you to bear with with me over these next few weeks as my family deals with all of this.  I will do my best to keep all the deals before you.  And if you see something I have missed, please leave a comment--thanks to those who have already been doing this.

H Cheryl,
I am a new reader to your site, but wanted to express my thanks for all you do.
Please don't worry about keeping this site up to date.
Enjoy all the time you have with your sister, and make every minute count.
My thoughts are with you and your family!

I wish you strength and peace. Thank you for all you have done for us couponers.

Tara said...

I can't imagine what you're going through, and yet you are so giving that you worry about us at all. I wouldn't be surprised if you took a year off for something like this. Thank you for your generosity in providing this site for so many. I pray you have as many sweet moments with your big sister as you can, and that God would cement in your heart all the memories you have shared with her.

This blog is minimal compared to time with a loved one, so don't post a thing until you feel like you're ready!

Cheryl,
I love your site and all the money I have saved by using it. However your family is much more important than us missing a deal or two. Please know that I am praying for you and your family. And don't worry about us!!

MissRockwell said...

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Definitely family comes first so it would be selfish of us to do more than you can handle right now.

God bless you and your family at the difficult and very sad time. I don't have a sister but I have several "sisters of the heart" and I know how much they mean to me. Take all the time you have left to be with your sister and don't spend one second worrying about the blog.

I pray that God's love will surround you and all your sister's friends and family.
