One Year Later....

Today is the one year anniversary of Moms passing. (AKA : promotion to heaven )

Mom and Cinny ( Cinnamon ) at the park. 

During this past year, I had hoped that I would be able to share all the many miracles and marvelous things that have happened ….but I couldn't take the time. There were so many deadlines and so much to do.
You’ll just have to take my word for it….there were lots of miracles.

I’m so grateful for friends and family. I don’t know where I’d be without them. They carried me through and helped me to move forward.

There were some bumps and some difficulties, but it could have been worse. (Thank the Lord it wasn't)

I can’t explain it, but somehow I know that God has allowed Mom to see certain moments in my life this past year. I can sense it. It’s usually the victorious moments that I sense the window opening and envision her looking in with great joy.
I know she is having a spectacular time in heaven…. and that brings me peace that she is not only okay… but that she is over the top happy and joyful.

I sold the house, packed up the remaining belongings and headed north…back to my home state.
Two of my amazing friends escorted me, the dogs, and Mr. Higgens to Michigan… on Memorial weekend.

I’m living in the country now… no longer a city girl.
There is a herd of sheep a few doors down from me. I love listening to them in the morning and in the evening. They sound so peaceful.

I’ve managed to find my way to a few garage sales and just recently signed a contract for a booth at a local antique mall.
Mom would be so happy that I am moving forward with Entirely Apropos and trying one more time.

I’m in a season of growth. I know it’s a part of the journey and I'm embracing  it to see how this all turns out.

Thanks for your encouragement, support, prayers and love this past year. I don’t know where I’d be without all of you!

Now, onward ho…..
