Giving it Another Go

Where has the time gone?

I see it has been a long time--very long time--since I last posted on here.  I guess that is what happens when life takes me down a path that wasn't one of my choosing, but necessary nonetheless.

Where do I start?

First off, I am trying to combine my two blogs into one by combining the names.  It's not gelling.  But it is what it is for now, until a better idea comes along.  And maybe I should just leave it well enough alone.

I have so much to say.  So many life changes that have taken place in the course of a year.  I have been forced to mature spiritually, mentally.  I'm thankful I didn't have to walk down this path alone, having God and my family with me as well as walking side by side with my siblings.

My Mom passed away last March after battling cancer for six months.  As executor of her will, I am just now finishing up all the details that will finalize her estate.  For a novice working in this arena, boy, what a huge learning experience.  

Like I said, there is too much to say in one post.  But I think it will help me to begin writing my thoughts down again.  

It's All Good!

  2. Thank you Conny! I'm surprised anyone even remembers my blog! Could you send me the link to your blog again please?

  3. Hi Brenda! It's nice to see a post from you again. Sorry about the passing of your Mom. It's a hard thing and I know that the work that comes with it is long and tedious.
    Welcome back!

  4. It's so nice to hear from you Brenda! I'm sorry to hear of your Mom passing...that's very sad. Hope you'll give us some more updates! Happy Thanksgiving sweet friend! Hugs, Diane

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. Mine passed away nine years ago. It takes a very long time for all the emotions to settle down into some sort of normalcy, though I don't think we ever truly "get over" a loss of a loved one. A verse someone sent when my mom died that helped me a lot is Psalm 119:76: Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.

  6. Hi Brenda. I'm just reading thru your blog. I'm so sorry about your mother--I know that is a tremendous loss. I also know that six months of caring for a loved one with cancer is unbelievably hard. My heart (and admiration) goes out to you. I just returned from AR last night after being there for the funeral of my mother's husband. She's wading through some of what you've written about. Thankfully they did have some advice and some prodding to take care of things prior to his passing--which made things fairly easy on my end. I am grateful for that. Hope you're well. Looking forward to more posts from you! Glad you're back. :)


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
