With everything that this year has held for us, writing, even here on my blog, has felt frivolous which meant day after day passed without any writing being done. Every time it felt like I was coming up for air, and maybe start returning to normal, something else would come along.
So what were these events?
First, as you're already aware ... my Mom's diagnosis, battle, and then passing away from cancer.
Second ... Steven's health issues which were finally discovered to be Lyme Disease. He is much improved since we found out what it is and how to treat it.
Third ... LV's eye that had been injured so badly in the explosion last year had a stitch pop when he over exerted himself at work. Thankfully his surgeon was able to do a quick procedure to remove it and it didn't require a hospital stay.
And most recently ... my dear sister (in-law) Emma, passed away unexpectedly last week. It was just a little over nine years ago that her husband, LV's brother, had passed away leaving her and her eight children behind. While we are all rejoicing for her to finally be reunited with him and get to be with her Saviour, she will be so greatly missed.
As much as I will miss my best friend and sister, my heart is crushed for her children. Yes, we'll all be okay, but heaven just got so much sweeter and we long for the day when we can be together with our loved ones again.
Now that I've caught up with the major happenings I'm hoping to return to normal blogging again. In spite of everything, I have missed it.
