I'm back....well, sort of

I've been spending a lot of time at home lately. Not doing anything in particular. Just trying to make sense out of the past couple weeks. The house is empty and very quiet. No doctor appointments to drive to. No chemo treatments. No walking every morning at the mall with my beloved. No spending quality time together. Instead I am going through the motions of day to day living and slowly trying on this new life of mine to see how it fits. I did spend a little time in my studio creating this little college. It depicts the place I am at right now - nesting and trying to heal.

I'd like to thank you all for your touching comments on the previous post about my DH. I can't express how much your sweet words have meant to me during this time. I treasure the written word. Probably because it comes much easier for me than verbal communication. But mostly because the written word can be read over and over again. The words console me and help to mend my broken heart. Thank you so much.

dear jeanne...again, YOUR "written" words touches my heart and i feel your pain. i lost my father to cancer several years ago and nothing has ever been quite the same again. i know that you will keep your beloved alive in your heart and in your memories and, he will show you everyday...in so many ways...that he is still with you! Just believe it and keep your eyes and heart "open" to them. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Healing takes time. You know just what you need to do - adjusting to a new life will come in stages.

I admire your strength Jeanne. I don't have that. I think I would still be curled into a ball. I am so glad you're creating, and trying to adjust to a new life.
Much love to you.

Jeanne,
I am so glad to see you. As I enter a similar time, it makes me feel good to know that you are beginning to heal and I am so glad you are using your art to help with that. I imagine it will be an up and down process but I am also feeling the healing that comes when I create. It just takes more effort some days.

I just want you to know that what you have said makes a difference to me in my day-to-day life. I feel brokenhearted but I know I still have some time to live with my dear Jud and don't want to squander that. We have trips to the doctor and walks in the mall and the ups and downs of this whole situation.

You are in my prayers, Jeanne. Sometimes courage is just putting one foot in front of the other. You are doing this with a lot of grace.
Fondly,
Suz

Dear Jeanne, I was so sorry to hear about your loss. I know you have been through so much and that you are tender and trying to find your way. I have been thinking about you and have been wanting to contact you but so much has happened here and I only just feel like I am sticking my head up out of the fog.
Please know that my thoughts are with you and I really wish there was something I could do. But rest assured my friendship is always with you.
warm hugs!!
