I wrote this post as I walked in circles and pushed a stroller in front of Ulta. I know that’s, perhaps, the strangest introductory sentence I’ve ever written, but it’s actually quite appropriate considering all that’s transpired over the last few weeks. Natalie had made an appointment to get her hair colored, so I took control of Lydia to make sure she didn’t exercise her lungs too much.
I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving 2016. It seems as though this year has flown by, or time is getting shorter — I don’t really know which is the case. Regardless, despite all that’s happened this year thus far, I can honestly say I’m more aware of what I need to be thankful for than ever.
Last Saturday, October 15, my Poppy went home to be with the Lord. Fortunately, I was able to see him and speak to him before he passed. I was also asked to share something at the funeral proceedings.
