I wanted to say that I’m very sorry to hear about the death of your Father-in-Law. It made me tear up to listen to you on the podcast as we lost my mother-in-law one year ago & I can relate to the feelings you are going through. My MIL was only 62-years-old and was the first one of our parents to pass on. It is very tough. Sending you virtual hugs and love!

This podcast really spoke to me. As an educator I lose all my routines at the beginning of the school year. Life is happening so fast and I have extra things on my plate as I adjust to a new school year.The perspective of as long as you’re moving forward you’re doing okay is just what I needed to hear. Your advice constantly helps me reframe my thinking. (Deep breath). It’s okay — I can do this!

I am so sorry for your loss, Dana.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (ESV)
The Coming of the Lord
13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
Revelation 21 (ESV)
The New Heaven and the New Earth
21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. 7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing so openly with us.
So sorry for your loss ! It’s really hard…
I’m glad you’re back, missed the podcast and waited for it !
The theme of catching up and dealing with life changes is a really timely one for me, you’re soooo right about worrying about something instead of just doing what needs to be done.
My toddler (2.5) started daycare last week, he’s an only son and I was a stay-at-home mom (with a small part- time job) till now, and it’s a big change emotionally and also logistically.
I spent most of this first week sort of paralyzed with worrying about his adjustment and trying to figure out the best new routine now that we have to get ready and go out of the house early in the morning.
My cooking and dishes and laundry and general mess suffered in the mean time, so this episode was totally a wake-up call…
Thanks again ! Hope you have a good school year

Sending condolences and hugs to you and your family. It sounds like you had a great relationship with your father-in-law and will have a lot of good memories.
Weirdly enough, I was listening to this podcast while I was out of town and working on cleaning out my parents’ home. My step-father passed away two years ago and I have been procrastinating on cleaning out his “junk drawer”. It is time to get rid of the dresser, and I had a deadline to get that drawer cleaned out.
The drawer contained everything from trash to watches to grade school report cards from 1936 to passports. Your advice to just start with the trash… and there is ALWAYS trash… was so helpful to me! I started with a trash bag and a donate box and was able to sort out that drawer in an hour or so.
Oh Dana, I’m so sorry for your loss! I’ll be praying for your family as you develop a “new normal”. Don’t apologize for expressing your feelings!
Thank you for sharing! We are happy to have you back.
Thank you for being so open with us, and for being honest with the pain you’re feeling. You and your family are in my thoughts. We’ve had a rough summer as well, with two major losses (but no book edits and deadlines, so at least there’s that!). You’re doing such a great job!
Just now listening to this episode. Thank you for being so open and honest about your loss.
I appreciate you and am so thankful for you!
So sorry for your sad loss Dana I feel your pain, I love you podcast it helps me to stay focused while trying to keep up with cleaning and decluttering, regards Susan Whitehead Ireland
