Here I Am
What a day yesterday was. My email, account and blog were "disabled" by Google. No explanation. I spent the day emailing them and looking for info on what happened and it was not pretty. They can do this without warning and you may never get it back. I was very lucky that I got mine back within a day. There is this whole process that you have to go through that usually takes longer. I woke up this morning and was happy to find everything as it should be with an email from Google saying "Our apologies for the inconvenience" and no explanation.
I felt so helpless and sad all day yesterday and had no way to let any of you know what was going on. Aside from my sadness about losing this blog that has chronicled the most important parts of my life for the last 5+ years, I was angry and heartbroken because I have lost so much in my life and after my Mom was killed my brother and I were not given her things, nor was I given a letter that she wrote to me to receive upon her death. It is a long, complicated story that I will share one day but it's effect on me when I thought I had lost the comments she has left on this blog were devastating.
Today I am thankful but wary and considering my options for a move. Know that I would never disappear without a word. I would never delete this blog. I would never treat you that way.
Thank you all for your concern. I hope to be back later today with a more upbeat post. You can't keep a good woman down.
