My Oma just in the days before she fell
finished 7 scarves;
one for my Mom, one for my Aunt,
one each for two of my cousins
and one for me and one for my sister.
My Mom gave me my scarf from Oma
yesterday; one last gift.
It's hard to imagine that she is really gone.
She was such a strong woman.
And a woman who loved God and her family.
Found out tonight that
one of my sister's friends
just died of cancer.
So much loss and so quickly.
My parents and others go tomorrow to Brampton.
Others of us,
Visitation Wednesday night.
Funeral service and burial Thursday.
Will return late Thursday night.
My proposal for the 3 month contract is due Friday.
For new calendar
St. Nicholas Day
I have a ride to the monastery and
need to go there more than ever.
I can't tell you how amazed my family is by
the timing of everything with my Oma's death.
How even the days my sister and brother-in-law
have for family are the ones
that are when we will be going to Brampton.
God's mercy is very abundant in the midst of all this.
Please pray for us and also my sister Rebecca
as to lose a friend who is still young
and one's Oma in the same
is very hard.
Yet God is with us all
and promises to never leave or abandon us.
