See You In a While

Dear Blogging Friends,

Today I was shocked to receive a call from the husband of my long time friend, mentor and the person I went to for motherly advice since the birth of my Brianna. Quite unexpectedly, she had a hard attack and died last night leaving behind a beautiful family. Her four oldest children are married with a number of grandchildren who filled her life with joy. Her youngest two children are the same age and friends to my Kaitlin and Brianna. I know you all will understand that I need some time alone with my thoughts.

Earlier this week, I scheduled several posts at 365 Ways... in the meantime you can stop by there. I will be back when I have reconciled things.




  1. Oh, so sorry to hear this. Praying for you and this family.

  2. Kat, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of this precious lady. I know your heart is grieving as is her family. I'll pray God's peace and comfort for you all.

  10. Sweet, Kat~

  12. Dear Kat,
    I am so sorry to hear about your friend. In our group back home, a dad of 5 and a mom of 3 each died, leaving young children. It seems like God made a mistake, or took his eyes off them for awhile. It is hard to understand God's plans sometimes, and know that he is still a good God and has our best in mind. I will be praying for your friend's family, and for you to be comforted and cared for by God during this time of sadness. And know that joy comes in the morning, and that God does have a plan and loves you all.
