75 Days

My morning ritual has changed.  Before, Steve would drop  off our little munchkin to the Nursery school. These days, I would drop him off and sit with him for a little bit while he eats his breakfast.  After that, I would attend the morning mass and then head out to work.

I miss doing our chores together, our “divide and conquer” routine in the morning and in the evening when we both get home from work.  I miss our “winding down”  time Continue reading “75 Days”

67 Days

This coming Saturday, July 21 we’ll resume the Let’s Bring Steve Home Voluntary Search Activity. We are lucky to have Find Me group and Arizona Search Track And Rescue (AZ-STAR) to help us in finding Steve or clues about his disappearance. That is only one part that will be ongoing regarding our Voluntary search. My family and friends are also planning to check out medical facilities which could be a challenging task. I’ll get into this more next time since I would like to talk about the Volunteer group that will be coming from Arizona.

I came across a sermon by Paul Tillich at Harvard’s Memorial Church in March l965. He questions whether mankind have a right to hope, even against hope. He discussed the difference between foolish hope and a genuine hope:

40th Day

Has it really been 40 days? So many days had passed but this still feels surreal to me.  I’m so glad that my mom arrived last week to help me out at home. We were talking a couple of nights ago about how I felt  that this situation is getting too complicated for me. She in her wisdom, advised me not to complain.

I was bewildered: “Not complain? My husband is missing. I have no clue where he is. Of all people, why Steve? He’s the kindest man I ‘d ever known. He has done nothing wrong to anyone.”
