Dear Blogging Friends,
I am so very behind, and have thought about posting so many times recently.
I truly think I will finally get caught up and back into the wonderful swing of blogging and stitching!
I am a very private person, and you know that I usually post mainly about stitching, with a few fun things thrown in the mix.
My darling, sweet husband had been sick for the last 16 months. I always thought he would get well. This has been a long, hard journey and last Tuesday he lost his battle with lung cancer. Before you ask, he was not a smoker and this is just one of those things.....
We are devastated and sad beyond all sadness. I cannot believe he is gone and I cannot believe that I am a widow in my 50s. But this is how it is and we will keep going and somehow we will be ok.
I didn't have much to post recently--I had been caring for him more and more, which took all of my time. You know I wouldn't have been anywhere else but with him. I still have my church job, which I am so grateful to have! We had a beautiful Funeral Mass there in the Cathedral and it was so lovely.
I have a stack of finishing to do, and hope to jump into that for some pleasure and distraction from all of the other stuff I must now take care of! I also plan to put up my patriotic tree this week.
Anyway, please say a prayer for my family. We will heal and be ok, I know. My son and his wife are doing ok and we've been spending a lot of time together. I'm also grateful for my beautiful cat Omar--he is such company and I'm so glad to have him with me!
I'm sorry this is such a "down" post, but I wanted to explain my huge absence. I will be back on a happier note very soon!
