081711086 We spent this past Saturday with my family in Brandenburg.  My sister and her family were up from Florida, so we got together for a cookout. It was great to see my brother-in-law, sister and nephews, my brother and his wife, mom and dad, and Erich and Mallory. 🙂 (And of course all the dogs..Hugo, Phoebe, Lila, Amber..We took Dash and Domino to meet their dog family.)

I wanted to just share a few memories from our weekend together.    081711197 081711102081711135

081711155  081711166 081711137 I love you all so much.

Thank you for bearing with me and praying for me as I find my way through a valley..I do feel the fog lifting a little and have had two evenings in a row that have felt somewhat “normal.”

I have a few ideas that I think will help me as a teacher and a writer….to be able to combine my love for being creative with my responsibilities at school which often give me little time for creativity.

I’ll share more as I work my way through these ideas. 🙂

For today, have a wonderful Thursday.

Tonight is all about getting Todd ready for moving into the dorm tomorrow…

I wish I could hug each of you and say “thank you” for  your friendship face-to-face. 

Know that you are loved and prayed for by me daily,
