Over the last week, I’ve been struggling with what to write here.
Actually…. that’s not entirely true. I haven’t had much time to think about blogging at all.
Thursday morning I got word that my step-dad had quickly passed away due to complications from his year long battle with cancer. As we were all bracing for a hard struggle ahead, he was suddenly gone. Within an hour of getting the kids off to school, I got the call, had a bag packed and was heading for the airport. It was a full day of travel. And emotion. And adrenaline.
Now that my brother and I are with my mom, the week has been full of painful decision making. And how do you make decisions to honor someone’s life… to capture who they were and what they meant when you are still expecting them to walk through the door? We are trying to figure that out through tears and laughter and time spent together.
And so for me, that means I won’t be here.
I felt like I should say something, but sometimes there just are no words.
Live long and prosper. I’ll be back in a bit.
