It’s been a while since I wrote anything here. Writing things down makes me think too deeply and I try not to do that. Thinking hurts.
The last few months have been devoted to my kids and creating as normal environment as I can for them. We talk about Heaven and we’re reading several books together about it (Someday Heaven is very good). It’s amazing to hear their questions and know how well they’re processing.
We’re working through the grief together and I’m awkwardly learning how to wear both Mom and Dad hats. I’m getting used to doing three things at once when I’m home and there’s rarely a dull moment. If it’s not on the Google Calendar, it’s not happening. The wash machine is no longer a foreign object.
I’m extremely thankful for the technology tools that make life more organized and “jump start” my brain cells. I’m equally thankful for all those that help support me and my family; for I can’t imagine trying to do this alone. We are blessed beyond measure.
A few weekends ago, the kids and I went up to Boyne Mountain Resort and stayed for a few days. There were a lot of happy times and a few sad times too. Lindy and I went there last year together and there were so many fresh memories there for me. Brooklyn, Max and Samantha loved the Avalanche Bay waterpark and I only lost Max once there (sorry Lindy).
I’m having quilts made from some of Lindy’s favorite clothes. There’s a ministry in Zeeland called Living Threads that hand makes them. Proceeds from the quilts benefit kids in Africa. I’ll post some images when the quilts are completed.
I wish you all a very blessed Christmas season.
