I am really sorry for the lack of posts. I will say, it’s been a long month…a very long month. Mark is back now, but I can’t say that we’ve recovered yet. In the last month our beloved dog, Skipper, passed away. He was always my faithful companion when Mark was out to sea so it was hard to see him go. I know that he’s not suffering though, and that made it a bit easier, but it was still a loss.
Even more difficult, though, was the loss of my Grandfather. He has always been a large part of my life, and this loss has hit me hard. Adding to it was the fact that Mark wasn’t here to process this loss with me and it’s my first big loss…it was hard. I was blessed to be able to fly home to attend his funeral and I am so thankful for that. I am thankful for the closure that it offered, and hopeful that I was able to encourage my family while I was there.
As of Friday our family is back together again! It has been so great having Mark back, the boys and I are thrilled to be a “family” again. The job has gotten much easier with Mark here to work alongside of. We are all much more relaxed, and I believe, more efficient. And probably more fun to be around 🙂
This time I really do plan to update more. As of today both boys are in school! Mark and I are enjoying the morning together combining a date and errand running. Starting tomorrow or the next day Mark will start learning Spanish officially so please be praying for that. I know he can do it, we just hope the language skills come quickly.
Thanks for sticking around, sorry it’s been so quiet here lately.
