IN LOVE AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
My husband has had one rough week and yet he had time to be the same wonderful guy I fell in love with. With only a few days in between business trips he was informed on Tuesday that his horse-pack-riding-buddy took his own life this week. It's been so painful, as you can imagine.
Back up: Tim got home last Friday eve from a week long trip and we literally raced to a marriage seminar (awesome time, even though I was almost the only one signed up without a potential partner; whew). Saturday and onward was filled with our usual commitments. Then the news of Tim's buddy...along with other major ups and downs took up the remainder of our time. Tim spent last eve at the funeral home; got home in time to repack, then left @ 4 a.m. Since I'm not very talkative at 4 a.m, we didn't even have a decent goodbye. I've been thinking of Tim all day and wishing he didn't have to leave again so soon. Then these arrived. I am still in love after all these years. Tim, if you read this...You are still my Jesus in blue jeans.
So many circumstances lately are reminding me to love well those that God has put in my life. We never know what even the next moment will bring.
No sewing here this week. Believe me, I wanted to. We had a magazine shoot (more on that later) amidst us finalizing another fabric collection (yup, you read that right). So basically, we trashed the studio consistently, only to make it spotless again twice this week.
We also had that birthday celebration last Saturday for my Princess Mia. 4 years old. Please check out my Jennifer's new fun blog: http://www.jennstorey.blogspot.com/ for the pictures. Hope you will say hi to her. You know how hard it is to start a blog and think you are the only one reading it.
May you give and receive lots of love this Valentine's Day! Love to all of you!
