See You Soon!

Hi guys, 
Thank you so much for your kind words and your prayers. 
I thought I'd share some photos from the trip to mom's and her service. 
Her garden was beautiful. 


She was pleased about that, I'm sure. 


A big tree in her front yard was dead which I'm sure was a burr under her saddle, so to speak. 


The foyer of the church was decorated for fall. She would have loved the decorations. 




 Her service was beautiful.
We sang: 
Great Is Thy Faithfulness
and 
How Great Thou Art 
The soloist sang It Is Well. 


There was one of mom's friends that drove for 5 hours to get there. We also had friends that came up for the service. 
My children were all able to get off of work to come. 
I thought that was just the sweetest thing. 
Honestly, I don't remember much about the message. 
My spirit is touched more by music than by sermons to be honest. 
Bill and I got home on Saturday night. 
We unloaded a Uhaul and crashed. 
On Sunday morning, I got a text that a good friend was at the end of her life. 
I can't even! 
I went to work yesterday and was there for about a half an hour and then started crying. 
They tried to send me home but I refused. Today, workmen are here putting the wood on the stairs. They will be here all day tomorrow too.

I need to be alone. 
I recharge alone because I'm an introvert. 
We leave for Italy one week from tomorrow. I'm feeling pressured to get everything done and get a semblance of normalcy before we go. 
I need to take a blogging break. I'll try to pop in now and again but I doubt that I'll be able to be online with Blogger in Italy. I do not have time to get any posts up and scheduled before I leave. 
I want to let you know how much I appreciate all of you. 
I have some gorgeous new pieces from my parents to show you. 
I will also, finally, be able to tell my complete story with you. 
Thank you friends!
Katie
