Tis the Season of Grumbling…err…I mean Thanksgiving

Here today as I work on a new blog idea, I look out my window. I have been creating a flower garden for several years now just outside my window to provide inspiration when I get stuck. Writer’s block is not a good thing. I can look out and see squirrels scurrying about along withContinue reading “Tis the Season of Grumbling…err…I mean Thanksgiving”

Grief and the Holidays

This year for the first time in my life I have no desire whatsoever to move forward into the joyous season. I’d just rather skip right over all the silly season and wake up on December 26th, thank you very much!! Grief hurts! I’ve been visiting with a grief counselor who has helped somewhat. Although,Continue reading “Grief and the Holidays”

Hope in a Pandemic

Strange title, huh?! Yet, I have recently realized that for me, can’t speak for anyone else, I have indeed begun to find hope during this season. We read in the Word in The Passion Translation, in Proverbs 13: 12, When hope’s dream seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing. But whenContinue reading “Hope in a Pandemic”

I Feel Your Loss

You have been gone ten days today. I sat and watched them lower your casket in the ground. I know some may think I’m morbid but for me that’s closure. I know it was only your body as you are now in Heaven with Jesus! And that reason alone causes me to rejoice! Yet IContinue reading “I Feel Your Loss”

I do not like grief! There…I said it! My mom passed in September 2019 and my daddy died in December 2020. My sweet mother in law, who is more of a momma to me, is in her end of life phase. Of course we never know when that final day will be..yet…we must grieve! IContinue reading “#griefsucks #mentalhealthmatters”
