It has been 8 days now. Today was my first day back to work. On any other day I would say, "I hate my job." Today it was a blessing. Small baby steps back to reality.
Mom is dealing with Dad's passing like the strong woman I knew she was. She has had me take her around town true - but she is dealing with the issues as they come up. Oh the legalities of death. Eek! Tomorrow is the attorney. Shouldn't be too bad.
I find the steps of grief amazing. And how Mom, my sister and I are at all different points. I talked to my best friend today. She offered an insight - those who cry the most regret the most. I'm not sure if it is true - but I am going to pay more attention to this point.
Okay, onward! There are a few things I must show! I sent Mary Jane (CalamityJr - no blog) my very first RAK. I have started my second and I haven't gotten very far. Would you like to see Mary Jane's pin cushion?

And then last Sunday before my world turned upside down - I won a surprise give away Emily had!
A spring pattern that must get in to my to do box. A journal and look at all the tags and pretties. Oh, the little girl in me just did a happy dance when I opened the package!
If you are still with me --- I want to tell you something. I had wondered why I started blogging when I did. Now I know. I needed time to find friends. Because I would need all of you. You will never know how very much your friendship means to me. Thank you for being there when I needed you! You have made a difference in my life this last week.
Hoping to stitch soon -
