Feeling Blue


Last night I deleted my entire blog..kind of feeling..
what's that song?
"Hey, look over yonder out in the rain,
Soakin' wet fever in my brain.
Now, I ain't certain which way to go,
But I got to move, sure
Feeling Blue, blue blue blue.."
(CCR)
It didn't help this morning- staring out the window with my kitten while the rain came down. Soon there was a flash of lightening- followed by thunder..so she bolted and I tried to comfort my dog as she shook. Then I heard a ping on my phone..a fellow blogger..couple now, shot me an e-mail (wondering what happened)..and suggesting I take a break instead of wiping my blog clean (lol).
 I figured that was reasonable..
So, this will be a little intermission-
***
Sorrow is better than laughter;
for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made glad

Well, Gina, I was going to type this bible verse for you, but you beat me to it!!! You may be blue, but your header and picture are as stunning as ever. Your blog is too precious to go away forever, all the work, thought, and beauty, almost like a wonderful book being wiped off the face of the earth. We all feel very blue once in awhile, Phil's never went away, so he finally took drugs, and now he has such joy for life!! Perhaps with the return of good weather you will start feeling better.

Hi Regina,

Yes, don't delete your blog. I certainly felt like that many a times but I kept at it. Come back when you are ready. At least we can read your beautiful poems and view your amazing photos from Hawaii. This is an oasis :)

Don't delete your blog...I await e'morning to see what's new in the other side of the globe!! Take a break..it's something we all need! I understand the monotony creeping in..we all go through that...writer's block or a bored feeling..it's fine!! The nature we get to see in Hawaii is through your eyes...continue showering those images after a while! TC..Hoping to see you after the intermission soon!

How can you feel like deleting the blog that always inspires me?

I am thinking that our blog will stay forever, even when we are no more around.

And someone may visit and comment.

So gooooooooddddd.

ditto what everyone before me said. we will all of us be waiting for you whenever and however long a break you need. the thing with the blog is someday it will be there when you need memories or your family or friends like us. our blogs are like diaries of our lives, for us to look at years from now or for after we are gone. dear diary blogging, that is US and you. hugs from Florida

Sometimes the blues can almost over come us...but we are the over-comers thanks to Jesus.

Big hug, Regina.

We all have our days. Some more and worse. If you can take a deep breath, relax a little, time will take care of things. Take care.

Hi my friend, I've been off line for a few weeks due to travel and illness so I'm sorry to hear you have not been feeling so great. I do know that rain can exacerbate our feelings of being blue so hope you have more sunshine now. I can concur with your many friends here that it isn't necessary to delete your blog. Just take time and come back when you are up to it. Love and hugs xx

Amin said...

Very beautiful new header!

It must be contagious! I don't feel like I want to quit, I am just lost for words. Hope you will sort out whatever it is and be 100% again. :-)
Best wishes.
