a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
We have been super busy emptying my mom’s place.
My sister sold her home recently and we helped her move her things into storage. She just settled on a new home and now we are helping move things into this home. I have been bringing furniture and things into my home and that requires rearranging rooms full of furniture here.
Lots of sorting, bagging, lifting, lugging, carrying, transporting, organizing, changing, cleaning.
I have been visiting my blogging friends but just not
enough time for commenting.
(The flowers in the photos are from a lovely hydrangea bush my friend gave me for my birthday in August. Hoping to get it planted soon because it’s really special to me)

You are missed, of course, but 'there is a time for everthing' as scripture says. This time is for family, memories cherished, and healing.
You are missed but I am sure
everyone understands. Good to
get even this little note from
you. Take care and be blessed.
Two minds thinking on the same page..must be the change of season..love that hydrangea is it a lace cap? Don't forget to take a moment to yourself and maybe have a spot of tea..
No worries Lorraine, we all have those busy times. You always put your family first and that's the way it should be. XXX
