OK Monday - So Far

Went to bed around 11:00 last night and went to sleep in about 30 minutes. Kept waking up all night long. Woke up around 6:45 am and thought about staying in bed but forced myself to get up and decided to go out for a morning walk. I did 2.4 miles. The weather was pretty nice as it was still in the 60's at that time. When I got back  home, I made breakfast. After breakfast, I decided to go out and pick up a few things I needed at the grocery store then went over to Wal-Mart. I needed a few things there too and had been thinking about getting a Brita Filter Water Pitcher for awhile and saw that they had one on sale, so I picked it up. Hope it improves the taste of my water. My brother Ron called me not long after I got home. Watched my soap and had my lunch. Kept "thinking" about vacuuming the carpet, but never got around to it. Today's is Ben's sister's birthday, so I sent her an email to wish her a "happy birthday" even though I knew it was not really a happy one for her. I told her that I don't know how I am going to make it through the memorial on Saturday. We've been planning it for about a month, but now that it is almost her, I'm scared. I am not looking forward to it much because it kind of brings an "end" to things and that frightens me. I don't know how I'm going to hold it all together on Saturday


  1. You are allowed to cry,even at a Memorial.God will sustain you.

  2. Kay, I've been reading, and haven't commented. I know that the thoughts you put onto this blog are your unique situation and don't want to even hint that I can understand. I will, though, remember you on Saturday, and pray for your strength and some measure of peace as you allow this door of your life to slowly close. God has another for you to enter that may be different, but still good and fulfilling for you. Keep your eyes and ears and heart will have better days than these last few! Hugs to you...
