For those of you who don’t know, my dad passed away to heaven on September 26th. Life has been (obviously) difficult in many ways since then, but there have been blessings as well. The outpouring of love, encouragement, help, and prayers from so many people has been amazing to see. The funeral was on October 3rd, and while there were plenty of tears shed, there was also a quiet peace and comfort throughout the ceremony. Dad was an amazing father, the best I could ever have had, but he’s free from cancer now in heaven and we “sorrow not, even as others which have no hope”. (I Thessalonians 4:13)
For the past few days, our house has been full of people – my aunt and uncle and their family + my family + a family that aren’t our blood relations, but feel as close as that all the same. It’s been crazy and noisy and amazing, but it hasn’t all been fun and games. Yesterday, we packed up a bunch of our things because in about a month, my family will be moving to Alberta, Edmonton. (Yes, that’s still in Canada, for those of you who were wondering.) We’re getting close to the nitty-gritty of packing, where its just a bunch of little things that you just want to trash but you have to pack instead. And I twisted my foot coming down the stairs this morning, so that’s going to be…interesting.
Before my family moves to Edmonton, however, we’re going to be taking a month-long trip around America, visiting family and friends wherever they may be. I’ll finally get to cross an item off my bucket list: meet an Internet friend. I’ll actually be meeting two: Ashley and Rachel. So I’m pretty excited about that.
Anyway, that means I’m probably not going to be blogging until I get settled into my Edmonton home, which will be sometime around the middle of November. I still want to participate in NaNoWriMo, mostly because this year’s theme is superheroes, and I have an idea for a WWII retelling of Cinderella brewing in my brain. We’ll see.
Annnnd that’s about all I have to say right now.
Have a great day, y’all!
