Richard Time 2-27-12

Richard Time 2-28-12

Yesterday I had a wonderful day with Richard.  We worked on his schedule for school.  Our family situation has caused him to fall a bit behind but he takes it in stride.  He is now looking at taking the physics series 1, 2, and 3 because he thought it would be fun and interesting and it will all fit in just right.

After this we took apart baskets of live plants that we have been sent and potted all of the plants.  There were a lot of plants to pot.  We first went out and bought pots without realizing how many we had so we had to go out pot shopping again.  I sure enjoyed my time with him.  I hope for many more like this.  I’m sure Kathryn was pleased that we had a nice day together.  I even weeded part of the yard.  I’m going to miss him when he goes back to Bellingham.

Scott took care of some Kathryn’s legal deals yesterday and I will do the same today.  These are not fun to do but they need to get done.  The house is still a total mess but that will get taken care of in time.  I want to make sure I put together a trunk of memories. Not too big but one that will allow us to have a place to go to remember Kathryn.  I also will need to find a place for her artwork.  I will have a great deal of rearranging to do and probably some painting too.  Richard commented on how you can really see the dirt on the walls where the pictures were removed. 

Some day I will see my sweet pea again.  I pray to God that he returns her to me but I know that is probably not going to happen.  I will be very honest in saying that I’m still mad that she was taken away.  God was supposed to heal her not take her.  I feel very lost without her.  Sometimes I don’t know how to begin my day.  And last night I kept waking up.  Every three hours I woke with songs playing in my head.  I just decided to get up and write.  Maybe I can get some more sleep on the couch.

Have a good day.


  1. I think you should write a book about Kathryn's life and and life without her.

  2. It's great that we can be honest with God, when we hurt, or mad, or confused, but He's got BIG shoulders that we can cry on, and find comfort and peace that we can't get from this world...... (JN 14:27) .... praying for you and your family thru this difficult time......

  3. Carol....you NEVER have to question whether you will see Kathryn again...you will. J Allen
