Goodbye Week. Hello Weekend. Lessons Learned: Take 35.


Goodbye short week that seemed a little longer than usual.
Goodbye little oops to the car that could cost $1,000 to fix properly.
Goodbye feeling my clumsiness and lack of paying attention is costing my family too much money.
Goodbye creating a trio of jewelry that I donated to a local school for their fundraiser.
Goodbye my Baba as heaven embraces you with love, kindness, and gentleness.


Hello 4th/5th grade choir concert that I can't wait to see (yeah, my kid has a solo)!
Hello playing grown-up and finally moving forward on preparing our will.
Hello family friend that came back from Florida and is begrudgingly staying for a little longer than he expected but we're thrilled to have him back unexpectedly.
Hello anticipated snow storm that will make our surroundings more like they should have been all along.
Hello lighting a few candles at church in memory of those that have departed.

This week my lesson learned was not so much an enlightenment as it was a confirmation of what I already knew. I have THE.BEST. readers on the planet. My family and I greatly appreciate the outpouring of love, support, and condolences due to this post. You will never know how your precious and kind words have humbly touched my family's hearts. They were surprised to see so many of you take the time to send your regrets and prayers, but I was not. Thank you for sharing your beautiful hearts. I love you, LOVD readers.




Have a gentle weekend, friends.

Oh my goodness is it Friday already? Thanks for the reminders this week, and sharing your ups and downs with us. I too have to visit the body shop for a fender crunch and have been procrastinating. Thanks for the fuzzy peaches, they're my favourite thing to eat when my blood sugar is low. :)

Can I say Hello to your cutest owl mug on the planet? Please let me know where you found him. I'd like to start my mornings with that kinds of smoochieness.

I'll be lighting a candle for your family this weekend, Lilly.

Suzan, if we are ever in the same town together, maybe we should not be on the road at the same time:-)

Michele, My son got me the owl mug from Marshall's (also known as Home Goods and TJ Maxx). I love owls just as much as you, it seems. Thank you for thinking of my family this weekend. We appreciate you lighting the candle for us. Thank you, Thank you!
