I don't know what to say......

I know I haven’t posted for almost a month. There are many reasons – first I was busy getting ready to go to Haiti. Then I was in Haiti. And when I got back I was busy readjusting. And helping friends get ready to move. Helping my daughter get ready to go back to college – you know, the typical doctor’s appointments, dental appointments, eye appointments and shopping trips. Plus I was also busy helping my daughter paint and redo the master bedroom. And in my spare time I have been just doing all the routine things that keep us busy in general.

Plus there are things I want to say about Haiti, but I am still processing it. I’m not sure what I really want to say, or even how I want to say it.

And I have things I want to say in general about my life, but I’m not sure where to even start - how to deal with all the thoughts and emotions and changes in my life.

So, it has been easier not to blog right now. I just don’t want to stir up all the things I know it will stir up when I start to put things on paper. So, I just keep pushing all the thoughts to the back of my mind so I can just keep on an even keel doing the things I have to do for today.

Hopefully in a couple weeks I will have time and inclination to really sit and process, and then I can blog again.

Until then, here are a few pictures from Haiti……

the Haitian people are beautiful....
