I am continually amazed by my children’s insight and childlike faith. I have discovered a deep understanding of the meaning when God asks us to have ‘faith like a child’.
Last night, I shared about the storm that exists for me in my rowboat of grief. I choose to show my grief to Sexy Neck, a few close friends and privately in my laundry room. I don’t expect my children to heal me, distract me or provide for my emotional well being. I sit with them in their grief but don’t expect them to sit with me in mine. But I am always surprised at how God uses them to teach me.
After I wrote yesterday’s blog post, the boys came to get Sexy Neck and I to watch a show. Wasn’t I surprised when I saw three chairs waiting for the ‘Up and Down’ show. The boys seated us and exclaimed as they pointed to the middle chair, “This one is for Nana!”
Nana always loved watching the boys shows, school performances and activities.
Ever present Nana.

I lost my mother to cancer and my daughter 10 then now 13 teaches me daily about walking through life and grief. Now on the other side I am able through God’s amazing grace to look back and see blessing in such an enormous loss. Thanks for writing. It touches my soul.
Also my daughter tells me that Nana has the best seat in the house. She loved to watch her grandchildren no matter what the activity, production or performance.
