I will be away from this blog for a while. I’ve been under a lot of stress lately and need to focus on family and self care.

“I always prefer to believe the best of everybody, it saves so much trouble.”
Busy, busy, busy, and more busy… As you may have guessed, I’ve been busy. I plan to come back to the WordPress blog sometime in the near future. For now, I’m focused on family, school, and work and getting enough sleep to function.
On July 4th 2013, while my neighbors shot fireworks in the streets, I shot my camera a couple of dozen times. The best capture I got was this one. I really like it. I was aiming straight for the clear night sky, so the only thing in the image is the light of the amateur fireworks. You can click on the image for a larger view. I don’t know why I didn’t post this photo last July, but I thought it was appropriate today. As I type, I can hear fireworks outside ringing in the New Year. Myself, I’m going to sleep when I finish typing. Both my son and husband have already fallen asleep. No work or school today. Starting the year with some rest and relaxation. Happy New Year!!!
As I left the grocery store late Tuesday afternoon, I had the privilege of seeing this awesome sight. It’s what’s called a sun dog, two bright lights or arches on each side of the sun. In this case, the left light is much brighter than the right one. And, if you look closely, you can see an American flag to the left of the sun. And between the sun and the flag, behind the tree, you can see a large cross. And, if you use your imagination, the crisscross pattern in the sky seems like a reminder of Jesus’s bed in the manger. Merry Christmas!

“Grief is a multi-faceted response to loss, particularly to the loss of someone or something to which a bond was formed.” –Wikipedia
Grief is not the same for everyone. We all experience and express our grief and heal in different ways and at different speeds. Some theories of how most people deal with grief have been proposed, but no one way is right and to force one person to heal a certain way can be harmful. What does appear to be certain is that grief is a normal part of being human.
