First, it is now 2015- we are a party of five. We have been married almost 13 years now. Three amazing kids, jobs changes, pets have come and gone, and we are somehow still together. I am grateful for all that my life has become. As I sat and read through some of my old posts, I don't know why I ever stopped. It was a beautiful story that I really should have kept up with better~
I guess with Facebook and Instagram - the art of writing (er... typing) is a thing of the past? My mom used to say she never wanted to sit at a computer, or figure out any of this technology stuff for fear that she would stop writing- my how true your words have become.
My mom passed away this year- 6 weeks ago tomorrow. Last time I had posted anything on here- she was just diagnosed. Now, what seems like an eternity has passed. Come to me, all who are weary and burdened. And I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28. A perfect description of what her final days, months, and even years were like. Mom needed to rest, I am confident that God allowed her to come to him and rest.
I don't even know where I should start, maybe a reintroduction to our family might be best. I know that I wanted to get back to these posts ~ so much heavy stuff has been going on with our family, that facebook and instagram no longer feel appropriate. It needs more than that. I needed to have more space to write. So, I found my way back here.
Almost 16 years have past since we first met, times have tested us more than I would like to count, but through it all, I wouldn't go to sleep beside anyone else. I wouldn't want to wake up without him and most importantly, I wouldn't want to do life with anyone but him. There aren't enough words to write to express how much I love him. Families have rocks. He is ours. Families need steady. He is solid. Families need funny. He is our comedian. I less than three you ~ always.
