So, I have been thinking and thinking about writing on my blog. I have really missed it. Then I decided to pop on and friend Lynda sent a note of encouragement!! Thank you Lynda, I have missed you too!Where to begin. Well, I have taken on the whole faith formation program at my parish and am still working here and there at the school. Our LIM program is currently stalled which is its own blessing because I feel like my family is no longer being ignored a couple of days a week. We are preparing to send the oldest to college (Janine, if you are reading, ESF is a top contender) which is taking some time and emotion that is new. The girls are growing into young women before my eyes and I have to sometimes catch my breath when I realize that I have been privy to bringing such wonderful human beings into the world. I hear everyday from someone about my girls and that is such a huge payment to me!Much of my time has been spent cleaning and organizing for the program at church. I have an old and sentimental parish and it is hard to sometimes move forward. They are the most extraordinary and giving people and I am happy to be part of it and to be in a position to build it. But there is a lotta lotta work to catch up on.There have also been some people in my world who have experienced big losses. Parents, siblings or friends and it has been a very hard time to watch them as they move through their grief. In a conversation yesterday, one person told me that their husband just stopped believing when his mother died. It is so hard to be grief-stricken and my heart has been so heavy for this excellent individual who has now taken another blow to his family. Another blow and an unwillingness (or inability?) to be consoled. In the meantime, a couple of friends lost parents and their great consolation through their pain is the faith that there is so much more and that they are at peace with their loved ones.It’s funny how we all process so differently. It is interesting how perceptions vary. There is so much more to write and I will. I am back. I feel like writing again. Maybe someday I will gather something and try to make something coherent out of it! Haha!I hope that whoever is reading is well. Please say hi!
