Thank you dear Read2me. Been a long time since I was on here. To tell you the truth I forgot my password then I forgot how I signed in so today Isaid, this is the day! I am going to attack ! And iI stayed with it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my poor excuse for a blog. I think iI need to read some of the others so iI understand what is correct etc. And there has been both the rain and the sunshine but we do need both to love our rainbow times. We are very settled in our new home and I think we have turned it into a home and not just an apartment. Thank you for your encouragement and I hope life is going well for you and your family. Blessings in this journey called Life.
It really takes me a long time to answer my mail! I really didnt think anyone would ever read it I think. Anyway thank you so much. Things have been up and down but i thank God for keeping me right in His arms. My DH and i have made friends with some couples in our Church and they are really very kind, loving people. I think they love to visit but it has been fun for us and i hope them. We found this church the first weekend we were in town and it is alot dif than the way my husband preached etc for the last 25 yrs he was in the parish ministry. But then again i dont think we ever really had real friends before. As a ministers family we were deeply loved and had some great years but really wasnt able to totally be yourself, not that we do much different but i think the congregation members kind of expect things from you. I miss being the pastors wife but its fun to do things in the church totally because i want to and not feel too bad if i decide that not teaching sunday school to 5th graders is really alright. I am still trying to get my quilting more motavited but it will happen. Its too bad that we finally have a lot of life figured out and you are at the end of it. At least the earthly end. I have loved being close to our sons family again and our DGD that we raised and to enjoy their little ones.. What joy there is in our babies love. I will try and add some pictures one of these days. I'm not sure what you really do with a blog so I hope this is permitted.
So until the next: Blessings in this journey called Life
Been gone for some time too. Glad you are back. I hope you get lots of love and support when you need it most. Sending you big hugs and praying you find strength that you need to get you through the tough times. Things can change in an instant, so hang on and keep hoping. Super hugs.
My father just finished a grief counseling class and he said one thing he learned was that every family had problems and it was usually the kids. Of course, he said it tongue-in-cheek but I'm not sure he wasn't right. Family can sure knock the wind out of you and I've decided that I just need to carry on and not worry about what the other guy is doing/thinking/saying. Take care of you and hopefully things will straighten out. Also, know that you aren't alone in your struggles.
Sounds like you have had a real period of trials. Sometimes it just seems the rain just keeps coming, but oh my, how we love the "sunshine" when it returns to our lives. May God send his blessings to all of you.
