[About the photo:
The best photo I could come up with to illustrate “missing” on short notice. My soul feels like this puzzle at the moment — missing pieces, unfinished, broken…
On a more positive note, jme & her husband bought this 3,000 piece puzzle for us on one of their visits. The gorgeous subject is Seychelles, a place Julie, jme & I all hoped to visit (but never did). We worked on this masterpiece together for a solid week, and then continued to work after jme & bryan returned home. It was a lovely puzzle, but we never quite finished it.
On the boys’ birthday party day that year, I had to make an executive decision: put the puzzle back in its box unfinished and reclaim the kitchen table for the party OR cancel their birthday party last minute! It was a tough decision! I took this photo just before we packed the puzzle up that day.]
Hello Dear Readers,
I know I’ve missed an entire week (or so?) of posting.
And I set off alarm bells when I didn’t even participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge for last week, which is not like me at all. Some of you noticed my absence and have emailed to ask if I am okay. So I am writing to tell you that the past week and a half has been extremely difficult, but that I am alright.
I will be posting in the next few days to explain. And you will likely understand my silence after you’ve read the post. But in the meantime, know that I haven’t forgotten about you. In fact, I think of you every day and I am grateful for your presence in my life.
My warmest thoughts are with you all xxx
