No need to feel guilty, not even mildly so. So grateful for Ivan's help getting stuff hauled out. We made a good team.
So glad your church friends are there to support and help.
Thanks for writing as you can, doesn't need to be weekly.
We love you.

Aw I'm sorry you''ve been so sick! Thank goodness for Ivan. I've been a little concerned that I would catch something now that I'm back working out in the world, but so far so good.

Take care of yourself - we'll still be here when you get better!

I'm so sorry you were so sick! I hope that by now you are feeling much better. I think Ivan's project is... I was going to say sourdough starter, but that would be cruel to you. Is he growing something that he's started from seed?

Here's hoping that this year is a MUCH less stressful one for both of us!

I´m thinking some kind of animal in there? Or is it food related? No idea....haha!
Hope you both feel better soon! Tough start to the year!

Ha! Ivan's project has begun!
So glad you're going to attempt the blogging routine again!

2018-01-07T22:39:39.969-03:00

Yikes! That's a rough start to the year. I pray it improves and that both you and Ivan start feeling better.
I have no idea what that project could be. :)

2018-01-05T13:13:47.400-03:00

I certainly don't read like you do!
Have you ever read Terri Blacstock?
On my long drives to see Mother I listen to audio books Mike gets out of the church library. Shadow in Serenity, puts you into the head of a scam artist. If I run, my current listen, into someone running from the authorities even though innocent.
Always enjoy and learn from your posts.

2018-01-03T22:36:58.408-03:00

That's a wonderful, calming phrase - "relax in my healing presence" Sounds like it's just what you need right now, and honestly - I think we all do!

2018-01-03T21:59:34.456-03:00

I loved the AJ Fickry one too! And of course my Armande Gamache... I can’t believe I haven’t read the new Jan Karon! I’m going to put it on my list RIGHT NOW!

As for any that I’d recommend - maybe I’ll do one of these posts too so I can even remember. Ha!



Amen & amen!!!!

43 books sounds great to me! I can't even finish one (ashamed...).

2017-12-19T07:45:14.890-03:00

Awe, hope you find the rest of that nativity set. Or I can send you a new one.
I´m glad you finally got to put up a Christmas tree this year. I think what the scientist write about decorations producing happiness could be true. I FINALLY put mine up and now I actually am looking forward to Christmas. I wrote about that elusive Christmas feeling in my last post...

2017-12-10T21:23:50.882-03:00

A memory that surfaced in the days reflecting on my times with Lynn, was the time we traveled back to the US together and I cried and cried. Now I realize that the saying goodbye to family bought up other deeper losses.
Thanks for sharing, Kim. Love you.

2017-12-10T21:14:50.366-03:00

No, I have not decorated yet. You are inspiring me. Iam hoping to being after grades are in tomorrow and Tuesday.
Love all your Christmas cheer. Thank you!

2017-12-08T19:47:51.777-03:00

This must be why Mike has been in a decorating frenzy - if it's stationary, it's decorated! I must say that it has helped make him feel better about our crazy life right now.

I wish you lived nearby - we used to put up a 7 foot tree, but haven't lived anywhere with enough space for one in 20 years. But I still have every ornament we've ever gotten. You could just "shop" in our Christmas closet :)

2017-12-03T23:30:48.044-03:00

This is interesting and I agree. Decorating makes me happy too, and it brings back memories of childhood and decorating the tree, but also of doing it when my kids were little.
We have a new tree this year. I had gotten a smaller tree because I was sick of the big one, but it was too little. Now we have one that's skinnier but about 5 1/2 feet tall, and in the pot it's about 6 feet. I had such fun decorating it and I think it looks really nice!
I like your ornaments and I must admit to being a bit jealous of a mantle!

2017-11-30T00:31:36.596-03:00

Oh amen & amen! I’m very bad at spending any time sitting with grief & loss - I compartmentalize & wall it off instead. I’m so sorry to hear about Lynn & Mother Hoyt. That is a lot of loss to deal with in a short period of time. I hope her recovery is quicker than might be expected.



Oh dear Kim! I'm so sorry for your loss and ca...

2017-11-29T18:42:35.310-03:00

Oh dear Kim! I'm so sorry for your loss and can not imagine what you have been through. I just started to read blogs again and have finally come to see how you where doing and now I read this. I wish I could give you a big cyber ((HUG)). My sympathies and prayers will be with you!

Thank you for sharing. Keep leaning, learning, and giving us the gift of your reflections. Okay for them to be lengthy, that's you!

2017-10-21T22:05:37.746-03:00

Leaning into grief sounds like a wise thing. Too often we try to push it down, be strong and carry on, but it always bubbles up. I'm sure that reading those e-mails brought lots of tears, but I bet there were smiles too.

2017-10-18T21:37:59.953-03:00

So very well described.
I pray Grief's visitations become less frequent and melt into sweet and healing memories.

2017-10-18T15:17:59.586-03:00

I remember writing a blog post about "random huge grief" for my mother. I'll be floating along all serene & BAM. Like this last Sunday when I finally was able to work the (extremely tiny) clasp on her diamond necklace. I hardly ever saw her take it off, and now I'm not sure when I will ever take it off.

I'm wishing you peace. Grief will be grief, and as you say, it is different for everyone. But I wish you peace as you sit with him.

2017-10-15T23:57:39.395-03:00

Oh, Kim, thank you for sharing your heart. Your loss is so great, such a deep hole she's left. But GOD . . .
Love the picture of the dogs.
