what title?

My extended family was shocked by a tragedy this week. My brilliant, funny, loving uncle has passed away. My sweet husband has encouraged me to use my frequent flyer miles and go with my parents and brother, and so I'm going to Seattle tomorrow for a funeral.

I'm so thankful for my wonderful husband who immediately jumped into action to take over this weekend and encouraging me to use miles that we've carefully hoarded for a "rainy day". Seattle's rainy, right?

I'm thankful for loving friends and coworkers who have continued to send me texts and prayers ever since I stumbled into the office after talking to my mother, in shock.

I'm thankful for my understanding girls, who have recovered from Mom losing it when Lulu had an accident and I became a puddle of tears.

I'm so eternally thankful for Heavenly Father's plan of salvation, that gives me peace in the knowledge that families are forever.

I'm so sorry, Liz. I'm keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers, and hoping that your family time in Seattle is comforting. We love you!
