Obviously, I disappeared again. The universe (or something–maybe subconscious resistance) seems to be conspiring against me posting on my blog every day, as I planned to. A great-aunt of mine, whom I loved dearly, passed away at the end of May, and I’ve been struggling with the loss of an entire generation in my family. I have a deep and abiding respect for my elders, and I feel utterly lost without their grounding force in my life.
I attended Great-Aunt Margaret Ruth’s funeral yesterday, and the loss I feel is incredible. She was one of the most faithful, kind, and classy women I’ve ever been blessed to know. She and her generation have been such an important feature in my life, and I don’t know what to do with myself now that they’re gone.
The other reason that I’ve been unable to post until today is that I’ve been a very busy pet parent. My puppy, Doc Holliday, was attacked Friday night after escaping from our yard, and he had to have emergency surgery that night. I’ve been busy caring for him since then, as he has 30+ stitches in his right front leg. Being a mom is hard sometimes, even when your babies are all fur-babies.
Anyway, I’m back, and my Quote of the Day posts will resume tomorrow. I have more news coming down the pipe for you on the Frost front, as well.
