Peace of Life

The past 2 1/2 months have been busy, sad and reflective. We have lost a family member and it's been a rough time here. A best friend of the hubby who also married my sister passed from this earthly life and was laid to rest on Good Friday. Gone too soon, we will never forget he was a wonderful friend, Navy veteran, husband, father and brother-in-law of 30 years. I want to thank each and every friend, our church family and those of our immediate family who have been there every step of the past difficult few months with their concerns, phone calls, heartfelt prayers, hugs and visits. We appreciate your love and support more than you know.

It's tough moving on but we will pull up our Appalachian bootstraps and overcome. DH and I have made conscious and deliberate decisions concerning our Life in the past few weeks. Everything will be given careful thought; every action, word, grudge etc will be weighed on the scale of: will it matter at the end of the day of Life. I encourage everyone to do the same. 
Life is much too short to be drawn into unproductive drama. 
The past 40 days of hiatus from social media for Lent has been enlightening for me. I have changed and the past few weeks' worth of blog posting has revealed some of that change. 
We will move on and spend the rest of our days enjoying our life together. At the end of the day, ultimately it is "just us" and for that we are blessed.

Life....realizing to forgive and forget is the most important rule of a peaceful life.
