I made it through this week and I made it through NaBloPoMo! Yay for me! A post every day is definitely an accomplishment for me. I’m glad I did it!
I will be really glad when this week is really finished. A funeral and a wedding in one week makes for quite the emotional roller coaster, let me tell you! But, I made it through the funeral/memorial service, I got my first Avon order in today, I finished at work early so that I could get a much needed nap and I’m nearly done with tonight’s wedding prep. Yippee! I will be so glad for Sunday’s afternoon nap. 😀
Congrats to everyone else who made it through NaBloPoMo, too! Happy end of November!
Now for a vacation!

Well, I am back from the memorial service for my uncle. Thank you all for your prayers. I really appreciate them. It went well. My uncle Tom’s first ex-wife (current good friend)’s significant other did the memorial. Does that make sense? I hope so. Anyways, it was a perfect length and some of his family and friends went up and talked about him. It was very touching. I know he will be missed by many people. My hubby wrote a great post about the service. I, too, pray for all those left behind, saddened by his leaving. I hope that I will be a good witness of God’s love to them.
Thank you, honey for a beautiful post!

Only two more days of blogging every day in November. I thought it would be harder than it was, but there were a couple of days that I struggled to find a good topic to post. Today is one of those days, so I will expound on my NaBloPoMo experience so far.
I have been enjoying it. I hope that I will continue to write at least 5 times per week. I did enjoy the challenging days. That was what it was about, right? I don’t think I really got any new readers from it except maybe one, but for me that wasn’t the point anyway.
I look forward to next year!
Tomorrow is my uncle’s funeral. Please pray for his family. It’s a really difficult situation, obviously. I’m nervous to meet my cousins again. I’ve only met them once in my life. So, pray for me, too. I would like to know them better.

I feel empty right now. I think I am just overwhelmed at tasks that need doing this week. I have a wedding to plan, a funeral to attend (which will take all of one day with travel), a house that is a disaster right and needs some serious attention, a husband that needs to plan ahead for his homework and apparently needs my prodding to do so… I’m just stressed out! I thought the funeral was Tuesday and I just found out that it is Thursday. That is a good thing, but for some reason it set me crying while on the phone with my mom. But, right now, I just give everything to God.
God, I need your help! I can’t do all this on my own. I’m a mess! I give you all of my worries and sadness. I give you my feelings of inadequacy and failure. Please take my life and work it out how it should be worked out. Thank you for loving me and caring about me always. I love you. Amen.
