We are so thankful that we ended up with about 6 inches and not the 13 they we calling for...oh what a blessing that is. Six inches is manageable but what do you do with 13 inches of ice and snow...so today the snow is beautiful and not a burden.
I am not sure how long grief lasts, maybe a lifetime. We are approaching the one year loss of my Dad and it seems to intensify my feelings of loss over Mom..and the empty nest with the girls... I think this is the most difficult season of life I have ever endured. I have not how started a quest to see what God has planned for me. It was so easy..raising the girls and as they got older I spent my time with Mom...crafting and taking her to all of her appointments..now...well..that is where I start my new year....hoping for a new season...one filled with joy, peace and love.
I pray the same for each of you. And thank you for all the kind words and visits this holiday season.
