The Art of Understatement

To say this is a difficult week would be.. well.. see title above! We have fought our way this week through the fog in our lives and worked out arrangements for Seth. I had no idea there would be so many details, etc. to deal with. I find myself thinking "does it even matter?" at pretty inopportune times. I'm inventing new words having declared our session at the funeral home as the "least lousiest" it could have been. (With much thanks to Rollin, a very kind and compassionate man, although, there was head tilt and I almost burst into giggles when I realized that.. Cathey, that's for you! For the rest of you, I might explain later ... or not).

At any rate, arrangements, such as they are, have been made. We will be having a visitation for immediate family on Thursday followed by Seth's burial. Friday will be a Memorial Service at 11am at our church, Timberview Christian Fellowship, followed by a luncheon. I don't expect any of this to get any easier.

I can only say how grateful I am for the hope we have in our lives. Thank you, Lord for holding us up when we fail ourselves.

Glad you have Cathey to walk with you threw this. Hope to someday hear about the head tilt. I found out who to call about helping on Friday so I am on it. Let me know if there is anything you need otherwise I'll see you on friday and I thank you for letting me hold seth. It something I'll always cherish.

Not sure what to say, as I know no words will bring comfort anyway, so please know I am praying for you.
