Thanks to all for your kindness and condolences over the passing of my Mom. Although my heart aches, it is a great comfort to know that I will see my Mom again in heaven.
We returned to KY late last evening, and although it was a whirlwind trip to NJ, we were blessed to see friends and family that we'd not seen in a while. One neat little blessing - I got to see my fifth grade teacher from elementary school. She had taught with my Mom, and came to the funeral to pay her respects. She was a favorite teacher; so that was an unexpected bit of sunshine for the day. I'm so grateful; God's grace and mercy abounded throughout the week.
Congratulations to Susanne Dietze, the winner of the final Blogoversary Giveaway. Susanne will receive a copy of William Henry is a Fine Name and I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires by Cathy Gohlke. If you missed the interview posts this week, please check out Part One and Part Two. It was a fun interview, and Cathy is a fabulous writer.
My sister and her family are coming for a visit this week. They'd had plans to do so before Mom's passing, so decided to follow through and come. I will be busy entertaining and reminiscing with my NJ family, and also processing recent events, so it is doubtful that I will visit your blogs for a bit. I will miss you all, but will see you soon.
Blessings for your weekend,
