I had a tough week. Wednesday would have been my Daddy's birthday
and I sure do miss him. He has been gone for six years, but not a day
goes by that I do not think of him. This week I especially missed him.
Now that I have become an orphan, I sometimes feel lost and alone.
Don't misunderstand, I have a very loving and supportive husband,
but there are times when I really miss the family I once had.
The other problem is my adjustment to living in Texas once again.
I love my house and my neighborhood, but it is still taking some
effort to feel at home here. At this time of year, I miss the beautiful
fall colors of the north. I miss the cool, crisp days. I miss wearing
sweaters and drinking hot cider and all the plentiful apples.
It just seems that a big part of my life is gone forever and now
I have to build a new one and that's not so easily done. It's a part
of me I can't get back. A part of me I once loved and now gone
So, if I get a bit teary sometimes, it's not a tragedy, it's a
period of adjustment and I will adapt eventually.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
