Sadness seems to be the feeling of the summer

This summer has been a time of loss for us, and it just happened again. My heart has been so heavy and sad since the loss of my grandpa in April, and now again with the loss of a dear, sweet friend from work-the seventh person from my life who is no longer with us since April. If you are a long-time reader, you might remember me asking for prayer for my friend and co-worker Linda as she was  battling breast cancer last summer. The cancer came back to her bones this June, and it was very aggressive.

Please keep her family, husband and two daughters in your prayers! Her beautiful daughters are the exact same ages as my boys, and today would have been her 33 wedding anniversary to her best friend and knight in shining armor.

Saturday will be a bitter-sweet day as we say good-bye and celebrate her life and home-going to dance in the presence of Jesus for all eternity.

All of the families of these seven loved ones are still grieving, still missing their loved ones, and could all still use prayer-if you think of it, please send up a prayer for them all! I am sure the holidays will be tough for all of them as well.

Thanks friends for your kind words, prayers and emails every time I've posted about the losses and trying to comprehend them-you've all been very kind and comforting and I really appreciate it!


  1. So sorry for yet another loss. This has been a sad year for you.

  2. I am so sorry that is has been such a difficult summer. Missing those who have left us is so hard, just love the ones who are still here more.

  3. Just too much to handle. Thinking of you during this hard time.

  4. I'm sure that after all of the sadness and chaos going on in your life right now, those feedsacks put a little smile on your face.


  5. Thanks everyone for your kind words and for thinking of me! Your caring comments and emails mean so much! THANK YOU!!!

    Erica-the feed sacks are still making me smile-every time I glance at them!
