I am getting better at grief work
There is a lot of loss right now in my life on various fronts, between my foster-nephew, the w-a-r and other things. I am learning to face it, deal with it (accept it, not get stuck in it, have really good boundries about it).
It's cool that I see that at least I am understanding something a bit better!
I read 15 pages of my big book yesterday. Felt great. Not even a chance to get 1 page in today but life is just really busy right now.
I wrote the above on Tuesday!
Today is Wednesday!
Things continue to be quite busy. I read about 1.5 pages of my book today, yesterday nothing. But I am writing some for the writing project that the book I am reading is for.
Tomorrow I am in NYC again! And this morning I was at liturgy. So beautiful.
I am nearing the end of a smaller book, Orthodox, super vintage (1958 is early for Orthodox books in English!) that is for my writing project and boy oh boy, it's a treasure of a book.
Well, I need to get ready for tomorrow and to bed. So not saying more now. But God is good to us, even in difficult times...

Well That's Better At Least

Here I am again
I booked a plane ticket for mid-summer for me to be at my sister's foster son's birthday party. He will be 3. And so far it seems that his bioDad, in the end, will have him (as in take him from my sister and brother-in-law). We were told originally, and until last year, that he was going to be in our forever family. I am 46 next birthday and have no children, which was one of my biggest dreams of my life that did not come true. So you can understand that this is very hard for me personally. Losing my foster nephew who I held as a baby thinking, as we all did, that he was going to be adopted by my sister (like his half sister was the summer before he was born) is incredibly painful.
I can't go into more details than this other than to say that the foster care system failed numerous times in the management of this case and the failures themselves are awful for everyone (including the biodad).
I can only ask your prayers as we have no choice in traveling this unexpected path of grief.

Beauty for today
Isn't this plate/saucer and teacup darling? in MINT condition! Got on Friday at the VNA rummage sale. Thursday night I had terrible insomina again so taking it much easier this coming week.
Sending my love to all those grieving today on what for others is a happy Mother's day.
God is with us and He loves us.
