Typing through tears is messy, uncomfortable, and way deep down, so damn disgusting. But it’s what I’m doing now, sobbing and sharing. Because I can’t sit here in this much pain and do nothing.
This morning the world lost the most amazing woman I ever had the privilege to know. Karen Tompkins Anderson passed at home, with her loving husband Michael by her side.
She was my dearest friend, our children’s preschool teacher, the funniest pal who used to sit with me and Dan through the most boring of meetings, the only person who could get me to enjoy camping, and she was so many more things than I can get down in one place.
I’m off the charts grief-stricken. My heart aches for her family. All I can do is show you the card on our altar today. In theory, it helps.
“Faith ~ Guardian Angel
Think of all the miracles you have experienced in your life so far. This card asks you to have faith that Heaven will continue to help and support you along the way. Your faith is a key factor right now, and it’s important that you keep it strong.
Like the angel in this cards’s painting, you are about to take a leap of faith. The message is that it’s safe for you to make this leap – you’re finally following your heart’s wisdom, and it will pay you unseen dividends.
The situation you are contemplating is the right path, provided that you keep the faith. Your steady optimism will attract the opportunities and support you need, but any pessimism will push away or slow your progress.
Before you go to sleep each night, ask your guardian angel to clear away any fears that keep you from enjoying full faith. In the morning, you will notice your renewed and increased belief. Remember that with faith, all things are possible.”
I have complete faith that Karen has gone Home. She is with her dad, her sister, her step-father, and my own sister. We’ll see them all again, I KNOW this. It still hurts.

Tomorrow I’m taking down her blog. So go look at it now if you haven’t recently, then bookmark it. There won’t be a link at my place after this.
