A few words

I've been lurking... not really commenting much but trying to keep up with everyone's blogs. My lack of posting is because my heart hasn't been in it lately. There is stuff weighing on my heart that I've wanted to share but didn't have the words to express. And there's been something life changing going on as well that I've not been free to speak of. But first I'd like to tell you about a very dear friend and co-worker who passed away last month after a brief illness. She was only 47 years old. We worked together, every day, she's been a part of my life these last 3 years and I miss her terribly. I have some powerful emotions mixed up in her passing, feelings that I'm trying to work thru, come to terms with. Vernessa had a smile that would light up the entire store, she had a quiet humor, and a kindness that touched many.

And her passing has made me realize that it's time for me to move on as well. A major project that's been brewing in the background for months is starting to take shape and will be finalized very soon. Until then I'm not free to speak of it but soon, very soon I'll be able to share all about this amazing ride I've been on.

Don't delete me yet. A few more weeks and I'll be back.

So sorry to hear about your friend. Way to young to be gone from this world already.
I will pray for you to get through your struggles and may your light shine again very soon!!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear co-worker. It is so difficult when you lose someone suddenly.

I can't wait to hear about your major project.
