Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Getting use to change

It's Tuesday! Time to Toot Our Horns. Give ourselves a pat on the back.
Take some credit.
And we don't have to feel guilty about it!
Here I go...

This week, if you've read my previous posts, has been a hard one. My Step-Dad passed away last Tuesday. Saturday was his memorial service. As hard as it was to say goodbye, I'm thankful that we'll have some normalacy again. Normalacy, meaning that I won't be running back and forth to my parents' home every day, spending nights away from my family, and riding the roller coaster that cancer produces. On the other hand, our family now faces a big change. Life without him will be much different.

I'll keep this short, the main accomplishment that I'm grateful for this week is just the fact that I held it together!! I got through it and was able to help my family through it as well. We kept close to God and let Him guide us through each hard hour.
I have confidence that our family will be able to handle the changes before us. And we'll see to it that my Mom is cared for and loved while she makes this conversion to widowhood.

Now, if you written a post about your Toots, please share them by linking your post below. The Toot Your Horn Tuesday button is on the left sidebar. Just copy the code into your post. Or at least leave a comment and tell me something wonderful about yourself.

Leah, I'm so sorry for your loss. That is great that you have held it together! That is quite an accomplishment. My grandmother died a year ago and I finally feel like I can remember the good times with her without crying.

Before I forget, I also wanted to let you know that our little Logan got a kidney! He is doing amazingly well.

I am praying for peace for you as I do for myself as well. : )
