Good-Bye Sweet Friend Part 2

I sincerely had intended to post again before now on a bit lighter note than I left ya'll, but it hasn't quite turned out that way.  I feel like in retaliation for all the joys of 2012 the new year of 2013 has decided to kick the living shit out of me.  At least for the first little bit.  I found out this past Saturday evening that a friend had passed away unexpectedly.  Really, I was more friends with her husband, as we worked together, but she was a dear, sweet lady that never seemed to meet a stranger.  They had even attended my wedding; I laughed that she seemed just as excited as I was that day.  But the true tragedy is that this exuberant, ever-smiling lady found herself in enough despair to take her own life.  I mourn for her but my heart aches for her husband and children left behind, because you all know that I know, all too well, that horror.  Please say a prayer for these people if you are inclined that way.

I will be back soon and on a better note I promise.  Just sorta had the wind knocked out of my sails lately.  I haven't forgotten about the pot pie recipe either!  I'll post it soon.
And hug your loved ones for me please.

P.S.  thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your so kind comments and emails about Grendal.  It really did help me feel some better.

Having been down that sad path in our own family my heart aches for her husband and children. Very, very sad.

Dang :( I lost a friend recently, too, someone I hoped to have more time with when we get to the farm, since it's a lot closer to her husband and her...they had one year of marriage together. UGH...feeling for you. Hang in there, gal
