Going Home

Hello my friends. I am only halfway through my first cup of coffee this morning, so I apologize if this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. We have had a rough week. The funeral for my friend's little boy was Wednesday. I was not able to attend, but hear that there were so many people showing support for the family, they spilled out into the entry and packed into any space they could find to stand. I am so glad that my dear friend has such an awesome community to lean on. I know she has what she needs to get through such a tragedy.

We found out on Thursday that Hubby's grandfather is not doing well. The family dropped everything and made the trip to Louisiana to visit him on Friday. We have been told it will only be a matter of days before he goes home to the Lord. I am sad that we will be losing him here, but rejoice in the knowledge that he will soon be home, out of pain and the confusion he has been suffering, and taking care of all the loved ones we have seen go before him.

We are back home now, but expect to go back some time this week for the funeral. I am exhausted, physically, mentally and emotionally.

If these things come in 3s, I truly hope that my car accident was the first. I don't think I could handle another tragedy in our lives right now. I am worn down; hanging by a thread.

If you pray, please pray for my extended family as they are navigating this road. We all need the light of God to lead us through.

I will try to get back to regular posting soon. Kiddo is doing some pretty cute stuff and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

D :)

I am so sorry! I haven't been on here this week. we've all had a stomach bug. I will pray for you and Casey's family, and your friend's family too. PLEASE let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Love!

Dawn, I am so sorry about your friend. And your hub's grandfather. Whenever things like this happen, especially when it involves children, it is like a kick in the stomach. I can't help but imagine: what would I do? How could I possibly cope if it happened to me? It's just so devastating. I want answers and none come.

Please know that I am praying for you and your family, and for your friend's family. Give yourself permission to grieve and not have to fix anything. There is a season for grieving and it's ok.

I'm so sorry you are going through all of this. My thoughts are with you and your family and I hope things start looking up very soon.

There is a poem I read whenever I feel like I just can't find happiness no matter what I do. I'm going to share it with you whether you like it or not. :)

"Force yourself to smile and you'll soon find something to smile about.

Force yourself to laugh and you'll soon find something to laugh about.

Wax enthusiastic and you'll very soon feel so.

A being causes his own feelings.

The greatest joy there is in life is creating.

Splurge on it!" - L. Ron Hubbard
