Getting Back Into The Swing Of Things

So I realize that it has been a very long time since I have posted.  Let me share some things that have been going in my life.  First of all, let me say that grief is a really funny thing.  At first I found myself not wanting to do anything then I found myself being over run by activity.  Now I find myself coming into my own, growing in areas that I never thought would be.  This is a recent picture of me with two of my favorite things.  I am a quilter now.  This is me with my long arm quilting machine and my lovely stain glass window that is in my bedroom.  I found the window several years ago when we remodeled and I really love all the beautiful hues of color.  The quilting machine was given to me by my dad for Christmas before he passed away.  It took me almost a year to get it set up and even longer to actually use it.  It is such a blessing to me, now.  Who would have thought my dad could provide me with such a huge blessings.  More than a thing, he left me with an entrepreneurial concept of business ownership.  I am in the process of completing my first paid work.  It is a really good feeling of accomplishment.  This past year, I have found myself losing track of my priorities and we have been crazy busy.  I will talk about this in another post but recognizing that this is grief talking is a huge step in the right direction.

More later as we get going on our school year and all the things that go with that.  We have 2 high school students now, so challenges aboud.  Lots of fun too.

Blessings for a wonderful day,  Suzie

I like how you say, Grieving is a FUNNY thing. My girlfriend and I of 42 years, laughed at death...both our husbands died young, Laughing is how we got through most of our life. we would laugh at the silliest things. I would say, Your husband could not stand one more left over meal....that is why he flew over the viaduct. We laughed through death, kid raising, job hunting and poor health, I lost my best friend 3 years ago....when I think of her I still laugh....she would want me to....
