Just a short note to say that the kids and I are doing well. Elisa, my oldest, is visiting. I haven't seen her in nearly 6 months so it is wonderful to have all my children home together!
I am such a believer that things happen as they do for a reason and while I may never understand the reason, just knowing there is one is enough for me. I can honestly say that I did not see any of what happened coming, (the sudden and inexplicable break up of the "blender" family), but I am very thankful for it now that I see things differently. I have few regrets and believe that my relationship with the other children was of great benefit for all of us and will hold life long blessings for all of us. Now it is time to look forward and move forward. I seem to have developed a gift for doing that along the way. Bitterness and vengeance are just not in me and I am grateful for that as well!
