A blogging break.


I am standing this side of something. A tunnel. A current. A dark place. An ocean of grief. It feels so strangely appropriate to stand on the precipice of a new year, and to stand at the ledge of this experience. I know that light awaits me. And I know that the light will not meet me all at once, but in slow, gradual gradients as I make my way across. And then I will stand, feet in the tides, on the opposite shore and welcome the sunrise. But first I must take the plunge.



I’m taking a break from blogging to turn my focus to my mother as she lives out her final days with us. She has battled breast cancer for 14 long years. We are deeply grateful for her life, for her love, for her unwavering faith and strength to the very end. 

I wish each of you a happy new year. See you on the other side.

Although I never met your mom, she obviously was a wonderful woman of God from what I've read here and on Facebook. My prayers are with you and Matt.

I don't have the words, but fortunately you seem to have said everything I would have wanted to.
