What I'm Reading This Week #14

First, I'd like to start by thanking everyone for their kind words in this horrible time both on the blog and in messages and emails.  I have been in this weird brain fog that literally will not allow me to process what is in front of me right now.  These posts were all done ahead of time and this week has been one of just utter confusion and inability to focus, so please accept my apologies if I haven't gotten back to you.  I have read all of the thoughts, stories and well wishes through tears.  It is so nice to have people let you know they're thinking of you and allowing you to get out those feelings that are so fresh and raw. 

It's not a happy subject and I know that I'm VERY long winded and I don't mind that some of you were like "TLDR."  It was more of me needing a place to get it out.  It's also to show those who may not have been through this yet or many of them what you could expect.  It's letting you know that should the person whom you had NO say in choosing give the send off screw it up royally, to keep a copy of what you wanted said on you.  If you are unable to read and no one else is doing a eulogy that would be willing to read it, then have a signal with the funeral director that you want them to read it.  No one should ever have to be feeling the way my family feels right now about her service. 

*Dance break to Baby Got Back to cut the tension*

I haven't read some of these more than bookmarked them to be read when I'm feeling up to it.

So let's dive into...

No plans this weekend other than going to see Grandma since the weather has been horrible the past few days and it was already a muddy mess before all of that. Maybe some vacation planning since I have NOTHING done on that front.  Sigh.

  1. It has been a tough week and I know focusing has been very hard but you have also found a way to provide others with some helpful advice, some of which I hope they never have to put to use.

  2. Thank you for sharing your loss on the blog. One important thing I hadn't thought of is when selecting a specific pastor to speak at a funeral some thought needs to be given to their age and whether or not they are still publicly speaking, especially if they have retired from pastoring.
    I am sorry for your loss and appreciate you sharing on your blog.
