Life is going on

Life is going on around here, as life tends to do.

The sun came out.The kids are enjoying the warm weather. Here Ruthie (3, on left) plays with her cousin, Joby's little sister.

We went to some volleyball games and some softball games.
But here's how I know we are well on our way to our "new normal."


Yep, my washer. It's on the blink again. Can't wait to bail this lovely, murky gunk out of it. Why couldn't shock have spared me this one? Arggh!!
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

I remember having to go to the bank the week my brother died and thinking, I can't believe everyone else's world hasn't screeched to a halt as ours did! How dare the unknowing outside world be so happy and unaware. Then again, it was the routine of having my own little ones at home and their continuing needs that the Lord used as a kind of salve - life, indeed goes on. You will find joy in the journey once again, I promise. God is good.

I'm so sorry, Katherine, to read about losing your nephew. My cousin - aka my little sister's sidekick - was killed a few years ago in an accident, and I remember the same feeling - wonder that the world (even murky washers!) still went on. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

That looks yummy...I think that baby deserves a home in Washing Machine heaven...or maybe um, somewhere else.

Isn't it a comfort that the sun comes out even while we are in the shadow? The Big Picture hasn't changed even when ours has.

And I'm so sorry about your washer! That's a big deal with all of those kids. I know.

It is hard, having to live in the ordinary world when we are in the shocking early days of grief.

Life seems to pay no mind to our pain. It is comforting and frustrating at the same time.
