Tired, and just not sure..................

I am just not sure how to post an update.  I have had a million things to do in the jewelry world, and yet, last week, it all seemed so unimportant, very suddenly. 

You see, my best friend, I mean, MY BEST FRIEND, the kind of friend you have been in trouble with, cried with, laughed with so much you can't even begin to count, the kind that is there for you, across states, in the drop of a hat if you need her....you see, this amazing and special person just lost her father.  It was sudden.  She is a daddy's girl, and he was an awesome man.

I grieve for the world, as they have lost such a funny, kind and loving man.  A man who always treated me like family, who always had a joke for me, and who blessed me with my bestest friend.

I have been trying to be there for her, what else is there to do????  I weep at the thought of her sorrow and pain.  Its not fair.  She should have her dad.  I love her so much and I just want that for her.  But, this is how it is.  All I can do is try to be there.  For the long run, like she has done so many times for me.

Soooooo- nothing new in the jewelry world, or my new line of components.  Right now I am just trying to catch up on some wash and vacuum.  You see, my middle child also has the flu, since friday~ 5 days of fever and coughing...with asthma, and an ER trip last night.  No worries, she is well.  I thought her asthma was flared since she was coughing sooo much and nothing really controlled it.  But, its just a bad cough, her oxygen levels are good, no wheezing.  She sure did look cute in her mask though, while we waited in the ER.

Ok- I really felt the need to update, to share, to just touch base.  I may be on here a bit less in the weeks to come, but eventually, things will get back to normal.  Healing will happen, both physical, and of the heart.  Time heals.


  1. I'm sorry for your loss. Time does heal and I'm sure you'll be back on track soon. Keep going. Family and friends are first.

  2. Staci - you should blog, blog. I mean... you write so wonderfully.

    Sorry to hear of your loss with your friend's dad's passing. Your right - though. Time does heal - it's just hard in the middle. Praying for you and your family. Poor J. Hope all continues well...

  3. Writing helps healing...and you have a gift for sharing that way. Hugs to you!

  4. My prayers go out to you and your friend's family. What a shame. Remember the good times you had with your friend's father and know that he will be looking down on you all. I lost my father when I was 17 (senior in high school). Some days it feels like it was just yesterday. Time does heal.

    Much love to you!

  5. Thanks so much guys. I have always felt better when I could talk or write something out. (Bev knows that I can be quite a talker;)
    Julia's fever hit 104 last night, and shes still warm this morning. Nothing is taking the cough away. *sigh* She's going to the docs today. Its amazing how sick kids (yes, kidS, now my littlest is starting with it) just consumes you and time flies!!!!!
