This is not a good week!

We found out last night that Ralph's brother-in-law passed away yesterday morning! He had been bravely battling cancer but is definitely in peace now.

So much tragedy in one week.

I'm kind of living in automatic if you know what i mean. I'm just doing what i usually do but i'm in kind of a haze.

I have not dived into food this week which surprises me because with all the stress that is what i would normally do! And this morning i tied up my laces and went out on a walk/run. It is a big help for me stress wise.
And believe it or not i ran longer than i have before.

Hang on!

Don't think they're coming back for this


  1. Hugs! I am sorry for your loss. I hope that next week brings plenty of healing!

  2. I'm sorry about Ralph's bro-in-law. I hope the stress calms down soon and you can feel some rest and peace. :)


  3. Sorry to hear the news.

    Take care of yourself and Ralph!

    Lots of hugs.

  4. So sorry for your loss, take care of yourself and family... ()

  5. Sorry for the loss Suzi, that is a tough week for you. Way to go on getting out and relieving some stress though. Great pictures as always.

  6. I sympathize on your loss and send my best thoughts to you.

    I had a huge, huge, huge crying jag yesterday after seeing a pic of my mom in the kitchen. Pic's always there, on the fridge, but I missed her so much yesterday, I lost it and started wailing. Nothing, nothing, nothing worse than losing people you love.


    May Heaven comfort you and yours...

    and thank you for the photos. I love that first one so much, I may save it to my hard drive. Something about the "heart-like" shape of the leaf and it's hanging there a bit lonesome, ready to die....makes me both sad and appreciate its fragile beauty.

  7. Oh, I'm so sorry, Suzi. You and your hubby are in my prayers.

    Take care of yourself, dearheart. I pray that you feel the Father's arms around you in the coming days.

    Thank you for the picture of the little lane--I love paths! Now I want to go outside and find one to walk down.


  8. Love the pictures, sorry for your loss. Stay positive!

  9. Love your pictures. That looks like Chinese lantern (not sure of the scientific name). Does that grow wild around your neck of the woods?? Nice work on the running farther and faster!

  10. Sorry for you loss.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. They are great!


  11. Suzi, so much loss. I'm so sorry to hear about this and catch up on your blog.

    Here are some virtual hugs and good thoughts that there will be peace for all in thier sorrow.

  12. Hugs to you and your sweet family -

    That last picture - just a babe in the woods!

  13. Suzanne, I'm sorry to hear about Ralph's BIL. But like you said, he's at peace now. Not turning to food & getting a workout in are huge NSVs, and I hope you can at least see that as a silver lining. Thinking of you.

  14. What a week, Suzi. Hang in there! GREAT job NOT stress eating (that is a hard one).

    Last photo: This is sucky?

  15. Sorry to hear of your loos. Stay true to yourself as you andthe family copes with the loss.

  16. I too am sorry for your family's loss. The pictures are beautiful.
    Hang in there.

  17. Sorry for the loss, glad you went out for that walk/run... keep it up! Awesome pics as usual.

  18. I feel for your loss Suzi...cancer is a [insert relevant curse word here]. I'm happy to hear to are reacting to stress with healthy behaviours rather than reaching for the comfort food though.

    Have a hug on me. All the best for the coming week mate.

  19. My heartfelt condolences to you and your's.

  20. I am sorry to hear about your loss. This was a hard week for us too so I can identify with the haze.

    Beautiful pictures. So nice to see beauty when there is so much ugliness that surrounds us. :)

  21. I'm sorry this is a little late but I'm just catching up now...

    loss :(
