Continuing Forward

After making a long move from Casper, WY to Savannah, GA, almost 1900 miles, it is nice to be back in the swing of things. We have a lot of catching up to do for our writing. The first thing which slowed our writing progress was doing updates and repairs to the house to get it ready to sell. After we put it on the market, it only took 4 days for someone to put an offer on it. Yay, for hard work.

The second thing, one of the saddest moments of our lives, was being in the hospital with a wonderful mother and mother-in-law for five days whose life was taken too soon from a person driving and texting. Even now, it’s hard to imagine our lives without her.She has always been one of our biggest supporters. It didn’t matter what we wanted to do, she was there encouraging us to do it. When it was difficult, she told us it would get better. We would learn how to do things better to make it easier. We keep wanting to reach out to her and tell her everything we’ve seen down here and everything we’ve done.

And of course, the third thing which slowed us down was moving to Savannah, GA and getting settled. We find it very difficult to get any kind of writing done while in a hotel. We were also grieving. We still are. I don’t think there isn’t a day that goes by where we don’t miss her.

If there is one thing she taught us, it is life goes on. No matter what happens, life continues and just because someone is no longer in your life doesn’t mean yours stops. She taught this to us shortly after Jeff’s father had passed away and we were going to postpone our wedding for a few months. She told us not to. She told us he wouldn’t want this of us. We should continue with the wedding and enjoy our new lives together.

We have so many wonderful memories of this kindhearted, wise woman. Now, it’s time to honor everything she taught us by continuing to move forward, continuing to write, and continuing our lives.
