Here's a photo that shows the current state of our home: Me standing in my study saying hello to my husband who's standing in his study . . .

where does
the pain go
when I can't feel it
a lilac sunset     soft
on the year's first day
Skylark 2:1 (Summer 2014)
I've been a bit overwhelmed by all the insurance claim stuff that needs doing: phone calls, decisions to make, information to send through, things to pick up or drop off. But everyone is being very kind and helpful. And I hear the roof is going on today, which is more than enough to be grateful for! :-)


  1. it's so great to find someone who takes such a situation with so much hope and courage! Wishing you and your husband much strength and that your home be fully rebuilt really soon,

  2. Really glad things are progressing!

  3. Oh boy, just catching up with what's been happening for you. Applause for your courage!

  4. Good on you, for getting a roof back over your heads! Blessings on you, my friend.
