A Haven for Vee

Thank You for Everything

Just popping in to say thank you for all the wonderful emails and cards. I have been truly blessed by the community of Blogdom; your words touched my heart.

This past weekend was a blur of activity with Nan's graveside service on Saturday involving six hours of travel and her Memorial Service yesterday at the church she attended in our community.

I've not had nearly enough time to collect my thoughts and so will be taking even more time off from blogging. And, as always, when time away happens, I've missed you. I'm looking forward to getting back.

Enjoy a wonderful November day...


  1. Oh my Dear, I'm so happy to see a post here. Just a few words, is fine. Just so happy, to see that you stopped by.

    Take your time.

    But please don't take too much time to return.

    We miss you...

    Gentle hugs...

  2. Dear Vee,
    Frequent thoughts of you have occupied my mind this past week. I have been praying that the strong and comforting arms of God will uphold you and yours during this time of sorrow.
    Change is difficult. You will miss your wonderful Nan. It's good to hear that you are taking the time you need to begin adjusting to life without her presence.

  3. you will probably need more time to rest
    than you anticipate. please know that
    your family is in our prayers.

    "shout for joy, o heavens; rejoice, o earth;
    burst into song, o mountains!
    for the Lord comforts His people and will
    have compassion on His afflicted ones."
    isaiah 49:13


  4. You remain in my thoughts. Trusting that things calm down soon and you are at peace with all that has happened over the past twelve months or so. You have been traveled an interesting road.

  5. Dear Vee,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of Nan. Even though I realize she was 100, I know how much she meant to you. It's never easy to say good-bye.

  7. Hi Vee - I'm sure you're exhausted all the way around. Take your time to get rejuvenated and rested up. We miss you when you're gone. It's always good to see you back.

    Nan is in a much better place and I know you'll miss her and miss the place she held for so long in your life and in the lives of those who loved her. May God grant you all peace and comfort as only He can. Big hugs coming your way, my friend... Vickie

  17. I am currently so out of the blogging loop as I am away on vacation. Tonight I have a little time for some visiting and was so sad to read about your dear Nan's passing. I know that you will always miss her and the special place she held in your life, but I hope all of the good memories of times spent together will help to soften your loss.

  23. We've missed you too, sweetie. We'll be waiting for you when you're ready to come back. {{{{hugs}}}}

  24. Dear Vee,
    Forgive me for only now checking in on your blog after 10 days of being gone on travels. I feel I've missed praying for you during this difficult time. So, your dear, sweet Nan is in the presence of Jesus at last. How blessed for her, though most greivous for those who loved her so much. Just last night my Dad was reading Mom's favorite song by Henrietta Blair called "Meet Me There." So wonderful to know we'll be reunited again. My love, thoughts and prayers are with you.

  25. I been away a few days myself. So sorry to hear about your losing Nan. May she RIP and you and your Mom will have each other to get through it together. Blessings

  26. Vee,
    It's so good to hear from you. I've been checking in since your last post, which had closed comments. I am thinking of your daily and keeping you in prayer.
    Comfort, rest, encouragement and strength to you.
    God bless you!

  27. Take all the time you need, Vee. We'll be here when you get back.


  28. I am sorry to hear of the recent loss of your much loved Grandmother, Vee. Prayers that the time spent reflecting and cocooning will be good for your soul.

  29. Dear Vee,
    I am so sorry to read of Nan's passing..I know you loved her very much..the memories of Nan will be forever in your heart. You had such special times..
    I'm sending you the biggest of hugs...

  30. I know the past year has been so difficult. Even though it is "the long goodbye", it is still hard. May the God of all comfort be close to you and your family.
    Sending love,

  31. Dear Vee,

    I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Nan. It's funny but as your blog was opening she was on my mind.

    Take care,


  32. I'm sad for you but celebrate the many years God gave your sweet Nan.

  33. I have not gone blog visiting in a while but just went by yours. Sorry to hear of your loss. Losing a loved one, even when we know where they are and even when we have the support of others, is very draining. I pray that you will feel comfort in warm memories and the warm hands of friends and family.

    One of these days I may return to blogging.

  34. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, rest in Him. MUch love

  35. So very sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet Nan.
    Your family is in our prayers. May Gods love surround you and may you find a brighter day.


If comments disappear, please don't fret. A simple "hi" will do. The platform surely needs some maintenance.
