I wish I could say that everything is ok. I can’t. I wish I could say that I know what tomorrow will bring. I can’t do that either. I have recently suffered a pain that is so great. No one thought it was possible nor that it would happen to me, but all is not lost. Life is like that. The road is bumpy, the ruts get deeper, and then all of a sudden you find it has been completely washed out by a terrible storm.

What do you do? Do you turn around and go back? Do you stand there and wait? Do you try to find a way around? Or, do you build a bridge? Most of us-nothing against anyone that chooses this way (I usually choose this way, too)-will decide on the easiest way out, and that does not mean going into the construction business. Well, I have to tell you that I have gone into the construction business in order to build a bridge across the biggest chasm in my life that I have ever experienced. It is not easy-and will not be easy-but it is the only way that I can see to the other side.

What does this mean for my blog? I will probably be more philosophical in my writing and less crafty. That’s ok because I need to heal while I build. The pain will not go away overnight, either. This will be a long term, sometime intense pain, sometimes, gnawing pain, and then a dull pain. I have seen too many people go through this type of situation but none of them have been able to complete a bridge to the other side—the ones that I know. I know there are people who do, but I don’t personally know any. I want to thank those of you have prayed for me. A week ago, I had no idea I would be where I am today, but then again, the week before that, I had no idea that the road was already washed out.

I hope that everyone finds what they need as they travel the road of life. It is not easy, but sometimes we choose to make it harder than we should. May you be blessed in everything you do—in your garden and as you travel the long road. Just remember. It is a journey. Be sure to stop and smell the flowers, enjoy the scenery, and try to make the best choices possible.
