2010 was a rough year…

I have often used the phrase …  “Life as I knew it stopped that day… then life began all over again…”   I said it in 2006 when we moved my mom into The Manor up by the Hospital in Morrisville… and Philip started visiting his mom every day for the next 4 years… it was totally different for me… I built a relationship with my mother over those years that was beyond anything I had even hoped might be possible… then in 2010… things changed completely once again… she died… and life as I knew it started all over again.

I was reminded of all that by a good friend, as I read her blog yesterday… where she was reflecting on how her  “world totally shifted in 2010” … her husband had a major stroke and she became his  “caregiver”…. no longer his partner in their life and ministry together…   “Then in 2012, my world shifted again as I went from wife to widow.  Another new normal to accept”

It is called  life …  and it happens to all of us… regularly… sometimes good… sometimes bad… sometimes ugly…  but  our world’s are changing… all the time…  changing…. most recently for us is… we no longer operate a B&B…  we did that almost 20 years…

In these processes, I have learned over and over again to simply say to the Lord…  “nevertheless … thy will be done”…  and then… in my heart… I know it is... done….

Funny how these things happen… but… as I am reflecting on all this… and listening to a youtube from our daughter of their chapel worship from the other day… it ends… and then…  the “next”  youtube just starts playing… blows me away…. it is one of my favorites… turns me to mush every time.   I am crying right now as it plays.  Hope the link works for you….  so you can listen as well…. just skip the ad…   🙂
