One Year

Thanks to so many of you for your messages and prayers in light of the marking of one year since Bob's passing.  It was a difficult week to pass, reliving with the benefit of hindsight now what we had no clue about last year.  The day was spent re-reading the painful journal of this past year, writing letters to Bob, preparing one of his favorite meals, keeping a candle lit all day in his memory, and watching family videos; 2:26 pm was spent in silence and in prayer.

I continue to feel like I am spent - having nothing left to give - and so I have decided to take a few weeks off from writing the blog and maintain some level of silence and quietness, in order to find my center again.  I trust that all of you will understand this.

Thank you for your faithful reading and support over this past year.

Bob is part of our warp and woof as a family. Although we were only physically together for over a year, it was the time he had come to faith and we were young and so were our children. They loved him so much and so did we. Our cross country driving trip will never be forgotten nor will he. I am continuing to pray for all of you as you continue in the work you have been called to. I am glad to get to know you all through the blog. It is unreal that Bob is gone and we are expecting our 22nd grandchild any minute. Bob would not believe that Maggie has 10!
