Welcome to How to Live the Little Way. A weekly post here at The Littlest Way where I gather all the ordinary things that happen or are happening in my day to day. Things like what I’m reading or listening to, eating, cleaning, and learning. These are the small moments that make up my blessed daily life and I want to remember them. My prompts may change depending on season and circumstance.
* I’ve written an ebook to guide you through the whys and hows to get started with Bible Journaling, Bible Journaling Tips, Inspiration and Permission, and to encourage and inspire you in your Bible journaling!
Thanking God for…
::wisdom from our priest about giving myself to time grieve
::working at a “haunted attraction” weekends in October–it’s been a nice distraction
::Anna asking a sweet woman to be her mentor
::Leo throwing his entire body up next to mine to sleep
::quilt blocks made my grandma and grandpa
::celebrating Anna’s birthday
::a trip of a lifetime for Anna
::showing up everyday
I am in a seriously dry place spiritually right now. Please pray for me.
I’m pondering generational spirits–I know, light ponderings right?
Nothing. Chris took all the kids to soccer tonight to give me some space for quiet.

Around the House…
I cleaned my bedroom today. It still had a suitcase in the middle of the floor from spending time in Kansas with my grandma and then for her funeral. Grief stinks and make me feel like I’m trying to walk through quick-sand while half asleep. But today, I cleaned my bedroom. I wish there was some quippy saying like, “A clean room equals a healed heart.” But there isn’t.
In the Kitchen…
Our priest told me I had to take the time to grieve or I would be of no use to my family. So I am making the time and taking the space necessary to grieve. Thanks be to God for a husband and children who are allowing this process because it is HARD. This is much harder than when my grandpa died. When he died, I still had my grandma. Also, we spent more one on one time with her growing up because he would be working.

I had such grand plans for our space here in October. Thank you for your grace as I move them to November.
Our Domestic Church…
I’m thankful November is dedicated to the Holy Souls after a month of death.
I took a part time job with some friends who own and operate a “haunted attraction” to earn a little extra money this month. The job is only for 10 days in October and will help cover Veronica’s MRI bill.
