Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. The grieving process has just begun and I can tell you it will be long and arduous. I can't possibly thank everyone for all the kind words, so please know that I sincerely appreciate them all.
I'm feeling the need to have a fresh start of sorts and have started a new blog -- I will still be talking about my daily life, and eventually some quilting when I get back to it, (other things have priority right now), and I hope to make it a little more upbeat -- and try to write more often. If you'd like to visit, it's: http://attitudesandgratitudes.blogspot.com
Thanks, everyone, and much love.
