I'm Back!
I'm back! This has been a very difficult week and I am still struggling to get back to normal life--whatever that is!

Thank you for all the thoughtful comments and emails concerning the passing of my brother. Blogging friends have been very encouraging and have provided a welcome extra portion of love and friendship.

My trip to Texas was a blessing. My brother's wife and children are precious to me. Several cousins and other family members that I don't have opportunity to be with often were also there. In spite of the sadness of Charles leaving us, it was good to be with family. We had a wonderful time of family fellowship at lunch on Tuesday at my
nephew's home. We seem to be in that season that comes to families sometimes--we meet at funerals.

I returned home Wednesday afternoon and immediately jumped back into some responsibilities here. Truthfully, I just haven't felt quite up to blogging yet. In fact, I decided yesterday was a good day to exert some physical energy. I did some CLEANING! I still have some of those tasks to complete today. Nothing like a little scrubbing, dusting, etc. to get you back into real life!

I will be reading and commenting today. I have a lot of catching up to do--I haven't even seen
all the neighborhood posts yet. I'll be around to visit you today and get back into the swing of things real soon.

Welcome home, Myrna. I know what you mean about sometimes only getting to see family members and friends at weddings or funerals. It's the same with my family, sadly.

God bless you and your family this weekend as you adjust to your new "normal".

Love and hugs,

Welcome home from me too. I know what you're feeling, as I lost a brother a few years ago. Don't worry about any of us. We'll be here when you feel like blogging again.

I'm glad you're safely home Myrna. It has been a difficult time. I pray you will have a bit of time for yourself.
Have a good weekend.

Welcome home dear Myrna! It does seem like that these days, that family tend to only come together at weddings and funerals. I know how hard it is to get back into a regular routine so you just take your time and we'll be here waiting for you whenever you feel like blogging:-) xox

I am glad you are safely back and that all seemed to go as well as these things can. Family is everything, Myrna, as you know. The rest is the proverbial icing.

I hope you can settle in and feel 'normal' soon. Thanks for letting us know you are back.

Welcome home Myrna. May God continue to comfort you and your family through your grief. My family has been surrounded with death these last few weeks. It is bittersweet to sit around with old friends and family at these funerals. How wonderful that we have hope to always carry us through. Blessings on you week...
