Sadness and Love, and a Hiatus
(I'm posting this to both my blog and my Mom's.)
Life is woven from both beauty and tragedy. Two weeks back, tragedy struck my family when Mom's husband of 25 years passed away suddenly from a heart attack. We both loved him dearly, as did so many people. He had one of those twinkling spirits that always made people brighten around him.
It's a terrible time, as you can imagine. I'm doing my best to take care of Mom as we pick through a daunting amount of details. It's sobering and scary, but at the same time, family and friends are coming to our aid in ways that are truly beautiful.
Neither of us knows when we'll be back to normal blogging, although blogging is solace for both of us and we'll be back as soon as we can. (Here on my blog, you'll see some posts related to my upcoming class in the near future.)
If you know and love my Mom and feel like doing something to help, I set up this donation page for her. Every little bit helps her hugely right now, and of course, your thoughts and prayers do, too.
We may not be that quick to moderate comments or respond to emails for a while, but we're thinking of our internet buddies fondly and reading your blogs for comfort. See you when we can.
