Blessed!

First of all I want to thank all of you for your kind words, thoughts and prayers and for checking up on me. I am doing ok, adjusting to a whole new life. I miss my husband, would give ANYTHING to be able to just sit and hold his hand and chat but that isn't going to happen. My kids are doing great and we are sticking together and taking all of this as it comes. We are very blessed to have so many that continue to check in on us and care for us.

I mentioned that I was going on a retreat a few weeks ago.  Here is the wonderful creative team that led the retreat.

It was wonderful, everything I needed. It was fun to meet new people, to create, to just relax, no concept of time or no stress. It felt like I was there for alot longer than I actually was. I have no doubt that God placed this dear sweet lady in my path.

 These are some of my partners in crime, can you tell we're all happy to be there?

Seattle may have a reputation for having not so nice weather, but I didn't see anything but blue skies.
 We spent some time on the beach.
 The weather was spectacular!!! It was a great time, everything about it was exactly what I needed!
I spent the last day in Seattle with one of my dearest friends from high school. We went to see the Chihuly exhibit. It was amazing!!!

If you have the opportunity to see one of his exhibits, go, you'll be in awwww!
 
As I said it was a great experience, I stretched my neck out a little, tried some new things, met new people and realized I can do this. I am already looking for my next retreat. 
 
So again thank you, I'm learning a new normal. 
I'm working on my dream of having some craft classes at my home. Hopefully I'll get back to blogging soon.
