DEVASTATED


Based on my last post, we were experiencing some ups and downs trying to get our homestead in order, and exactly the way we planned.  We made a list of projects to complete, and were in the process of completing them.  When on July 17th, my young sister and my dear friend, Kim passed away after a brief illness.  Her passing was a complete shock to my entire family. 

Please understand, I will be back, I just need a time to grieve.

  1. Oh, no, Sandy! I am SO, so sorry to hear this awful news. Please take as much time as you need. I wish I was there to give you a hug in person, but am sending the largest virtual hug I can possibly muster. Let me know if there is anything I can do - anything at all. Love to you and your family.

  4. What a tragedy for you and your whole family to bear. I am so sorry to hear this very sad news. It's very understandable that it will take a while for you to get your bearings and feel you've returned to what feels like a (new) normal life. Sending my deepest sympathies to you, Sandy.

    1. Rev Paul,
      Thank you dear friend. It's hard to believe, I've lost my entire biological family in a 5 year period. I'm getting things together and have realized the good Lord had plans for my family.

      I hope you, and your family are well.

  9. I feel your pain, but I am sure you will win through, and I also know that Kim will be walking by your side as you heal, still with you in spirit, still connecting with you as her sister.
    Sending blessings to you. Vx

    1. 1st Man,
      Thanksgiving was hard, and now Christmas is sneaking upon us. Thank you for your hugs, and friendship. I promise to get back to blogging soon. We've been trying to Change a few things on the homestead, and I'm still dealing with probate court, and my sister's estate.
      Hugs,
      Sandy
