Breaking the Silence

I know it's been a bit since you heard from me, and right after a rather epic post too. Well, I'm with my grandmother, far away from the difficulties that my family is handling right now. From what I understand, the house has been completely evacuated, the floors might even be swept, if my mother has had her way. There were still a few things to move from the wellhouse/office and then everything will be on hold until the situation has been stabilized and decisions can be made on what to do next.

There are some ideas under consideration, and some of them would include major changes. We shall just have to see what the future holds. At this point the family is really hoping to be able to find a place to rent in town temporarily so that they can move out of my brother and sister-in-laws, where they have been staying for the last few days. Just when I think we are "out of their hair" the step up to the plate with more gracious hospitality in a time of need.

The family could still really use prayers as they decide what the next step should be. I don't know if the Blue Castle is even an option to move back into if the hillside can be stabilized. Something has shifted enough that you can't open the doors so what that has done to the structural integrity, I can't say. Something that will have to be considered at any rate.

In other news, I've heard of women being widows before they were married, but I never thought as I should be one...........that might be a bit of stretch, but I joined my grandmother today for a widows luncheon. They were very sweet ladies and the testimony one shared was pretty amazing. I am very grateful that they welcomed me so kindly, but still, when you think about just the plain fact of it being a widows luncheon, it's interesting.

This is just a quick note, well, as quick as a lass with a few good drops of Irish blood in her veins gets, to say hi. When you will hear from me again, I couldn't say, there is this little issue of the internet and generational gap that I'm struggling to bridge. :) (Not to mention, I'm very used to having it at my finger tips and going somewhere to access it is a bit daunting.)

Till later my friends,

Good to hear from you! Your family could always move to Morgantown...!! :) I'm sure a widows luncheon would be quite interesting, at least the greatest thing that really means a lot to each woman, they all have in common. Probably a big comfort to get together with each other. Oh, the days of the future! :)

SO glad you broke the silence. I'd been wondering what was up. I already suggested to Kyna that you all move here...specifically to our downstairs, which could have three bedrooms plus bath, etc., etc (once fixed up just a bit). The option's there, just so you know. :) This message is making me miss all of you. :( Post again when you have a chance, will ya?? :D

Hello ladies! I'm trying to work on another fashion post - what I wore to travel.

Thank you so much for the kind housing offer! :) I did try to get the family to move to Virginia, but as you can see, I wasn't so successful. And, well, the truth is God used it for good. I'm torn, I would actually still love to live in Virginia someday (I think :)), but I would hate to be so far from my family.

Okay, better go now, someone, who shall remain nameless, would like to go now. :)
