There will be a day

Stopped at my mom’s for a short visit yesterday and we got on a conversation about my blog. She has been missing it and said “Can’t you at least just do silent Sundays”…lol. She is so sweet.  I told her Mom I just feel like Forest in the movie where he ran and ran and ran….then one day he was just done. I told her I don’t know if I’m ever going to blog again. 


 Then I got up this morning and was reading this scripture.
He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 1:6
I started to really ponder that last line “the day of Christ Jesus”

I though wow what is that day going to be like?! Then I remembered this song… 

 and all of that made me feel like blogging for the first time in months.
Mom must have really been
So will I keep blogging or not I don’t know.  I feel stronger both in spirit and in my body.  Taken on all Richards chores of caring for the house has been both challenging and rewarding as I accomplish things I never thought I could do without a husband.  Yesterday I replaced a sink and faucet in my bathroom. Who would have thunk it!  
I’ve also been spending lots of time with my grand kids. The joys of my life!

Mr. Waylon is going to be the leader of the pack one day I know it!

And my sweet Shannie is about to come for the summer.

She and I have had some amazing moments as we process through our grief together. A quick story about that I will share is one day I asked God…”Does Richard even think about me?” Later that night right before bed Shannie gave me two notes she wrote… one telling me how much she loves me and the other one she wrote as if Poppy wrote it to me saying how he loves me and thinks of me ….she even signed it love lightning Poppy. Which made me cry and laugh…she doesn’t realizes he wouldn’t sign love Poppy …lol But it was perfect and she didn’t know what I had asked God. So I treasure both those notes they are in my bible.
I do want to thank everyone for writing and encouraging me and for all your prayers.  I feel them. 
And the more I type the more I realize I missed this….so maybe I’ will get my running shoes back on. J


  1. I missed you indeed sweet Anna! I'm proud of you for taking time to heal and realize that in Christ "you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, & smarter than you think." Christopher Robin. :) Waylon and Shannie are cute as ever and blessed to have you as gramma.

    Hugs, Anne

    1. Thank you's nice to be missed :) Love the Christopher Robin quote!

  2. Yeah, you're back! Oh how I've missed "seeing" you. That's right Anna, put on those running shoes and keep blogging. It's very therapeutic.

    It's going to be a fun summer with Shannie around. She always is a joy to read about. She is such a "wise grasshopper." Look how much Waylon has grown :)

    Welcome back!


    1. Thanks so much I said it's nice to be missed. I have to hope over to your blog and catch up on life. Big hugs to you all! :)
