Then There Were Two...


I was playing around on the computer this morning as I waited for the rain to stop and quite unintentionally I opened up my blog site. I couldn't believe that it had been four months since I posted a blog. Then I looked at my last post. May 18th was such a great day; such hope and joy. I can still hear Elizabeth's voice on the phone as we made plans to get together at the camp in Maine this summer. A few weeks later the word 'metastasize' would turn our worlds inside out and upside down. I was at the camp in Maine in August when I got the call that Elizabeth had passed away. As the sun rose over the lake that morning there was such a beautiful, rolling fog lifting off of the water. It felt like being wrapped in a blanket of silence and peacefulness. I remember thinking that Elizabeth did make it to camp that morning - it just wasn't the way we originally planned.


When I was a kid I hated subtraction. As an adult I still don't like it very much. This picture was taken about a year ago. Four sisters. Minus two...

I'm so sorry to hear your sad news. It's impossible to imagine how difficult it must be for you and your family, and I'm shocked at the time frame. You have all my sympathy, 21charlesstreet.

Man, that subtraction thing is tough. I don't think you ever master it completely, you just get better with practice and every day that passes. Feel the love Pat, it's coming your way.

September, 2007?

It's August, 2008 for chrissakes. You see what I'm saying? How about an update? Post a picture. Rip something off from another blog. Tell us what was in your cereal bowl this morning - something!
