Sorry for not posting all week, but it has been a very hectic and difficult week for us. First my keyboard on my laptop decided to really start causing headaches. I had a new one ordered, but had to wait for it to come in. It was finally fixed today so I’m back in business.
That’s actually all good compared to the fact that my dear husband lost an aunt and a great uncle this week. His aunt passed away on Monday, and his great uncle passed away yesterday. Needless to say, it’s been an emotional week for us, especially him.
We’ve had our ups and downs this week, but in some ways we’re even closer through it all. He is my best friend, and I am his. It has also strengthened our relationship with our Heavenly Father. It has reminded us that His plan is infinitely better than anything we could conceive. We mourn our lost loved ones, but we know that they are better off in Heaven than here on earth where they were sick and in pain.
We have also been reminded that we are not guaranteed tomorrow, or even the next minute for that matter. I am thankful for each and every day that I have with my husband and children. Each day is such a blessing. Every day may not be full of laughter, and there might be arguments between our kids and us, as parents, or even just between the kids, but each day is still full of blessings because we have been allowed to live another day and live it together as a family.
Anyway, that’s been my week. I hope I didn’t ramble on too badly. I promise to get back to blogging again.
It’s been a very crazy week here, too. I know what you mean! I’ll be praying that things will “ease up” soon!! (for both of us… 😛 )
Oh Steph, I’m sorry to hear about your dh’s aunt and great uncle. Thank you for your encouraging words on my blog. Hopefully life will settle down as much as it can with a busy family. You are, as always, an inspiration.~Audra
