So, here's where it begins...

I've decided to start blogging and kind of keeping track of things that I know if I don't write (or type), I may forget. Wow, life is kinda crazy right now. While I'm honestly in the happiest place I've ever been in my life, there are some things going on right now that are really weighing on me. My Uncle Chris passed away on Sunday evening. We found out the day before Easter that he had leukemia and just like that, in just over 2 months, it had taken him. I feel a sense of peace about it right now and am clinging to the Lord, but I have a feeling my world is going to be rocked when I get to the funeral home tomorrow and see my Aunt and the pain she is in. It's just so hard knowing that there really isn't anything you can say or do to take someone's pain away. Brian and I will be spending Thursday and Friday at the funeral home with our family and then the funeral will be on Saturday. We have some very emotional days ahead of us and I just hope that I can hold it together. I'm just praying that God will come alongside everyone who is there and is mourning Chris' passing and that a sense of peace will be over all of us.

huge hugs. No matter how expected death is, it always makes us reel, doesn't it? You're right in clinging to God. Like your comment at the bottom...pray that he makes you stronger through this. I know that your family is strong as a unit and can depend on each other.

Side note: I'm THRILLED you're blogging!!!!

I just found your blog from your comment on mine - I'm so sorry for your loss. It's been a whirlwind week of loss here too and I know God is going to see me through all these emotions. I'm positive He'll see you through too. {{hugs}}
