Awful Grace

A lot has happened. Lots of changes. Loss. Grief. Snow.

We lost Derek’s father on October 11. We are comforted in knowing that we loved him well; we cared for him in the most difficult hour; and we were given the gift of a few last words with him.

But change is terribly hard, loss is so painful, and we’re tired.

We’ll be changing webhosts, and with that change will come a new life for this blog. There have been problems with the old service, and this content management software is becoming obsolete, so it’s time to pack up and move out. I hope to have something I can better use and more importantly, enjoy using, up by the new year. Addresses will remain mostly the same.

That’s all I have for now. Even in such a pisser of a year as this, I have homework to finish.

And even in our sleep,
pain which cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart,
and in our own despite,
against our will,
comes wisdom to us
by the awful grace of God.


We miss you, Daddy-O.

  1. Wow, the hits just keep coming.
    Soon you can bid 2006 farewell, and greet a fresh set of 365 with a hopeful face.


  2. Of course you’re tired, sweetheart. How could you not be? Poor dear.
    I, too, hope 2007 will bring better days for you and Derek. I can’t think of two people more deserving of peace and contentment.
    Will e-mail you tomorrow. Until then, take good care of yourself.
