Eye Candy Friday

Hello, friends. I’m just checking in to tell you that we are okay. We are sad but coping. We are struggling but surrounded by love. And we definitely feel that love.  It is expressed in so many ways: whispered words of sorrow, strong hugs, cards in the mail, deliveries of flowers and food, messages here and on social media, phone calls and so much more. All of those things are keeping us going and it means so much to us.

Last Friday I hoped for a weekend of beauty and then our world turned upside down. I’m going to be brave and wish for a beautiful weekend again. Because, in the end, hope is what keeps us moving forward.

  1. Hope. It is what this season is about, really. May you find it in unexpected places as you move through this time of sadness.

  2. The beauty is in the loving family and friends who surround with care and support. I’m is quote but I hope it helps. “Grief is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All the unspent love gathers in the corners of you eyes, the lump in your throat and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.”

  3. Indeed it does, and I love that your peace symbol is easily seen in the photos. One day at a time, one step at a time, no more no less is required.

  4. Correction! Hope is the thing with feathers.
    I feel hope it’s a gift, especially during times of anguish.

  5. Without hope you have nothing…you are moving in the right direction my friend. Hang in there, these days are the hardest, but with love, hope and eventually Spring, it will get easier. Love you!

  6. It will take much love, patience(the unanswered questions), and time… lots of time… please Carole, hug And kiss Dale for me… He is such a great guy… I love you both…

  7. You sound like you all are doing remarkably well, Carole. All you can do is put one foot in front of the other and hold fast to those you love. I’m glad you are able to hold your arms open and feel the love and support. Thanks for letting us know you are doing so well in spite of overwhelming sorrow. I hope you are finding little moments of grace.

  8. I took a few days off from reading blogs . . . but you know you were always on my mind. XO I hope your weekend was full of peace.
