So, over a month ago, I mentioned I was “back to blogging (hopefully much more regularly)”, — I’m really not sure where the month went!
But on February 22nd I started a NEW (but sad) phase of life – a life without my mother. Mom passed away after a very brief illness. We visited her on President’s Day weekend and she seemed just as strong, and healthy as always. We played a game, visited, ran to the store for a few groceries for her, stayed the night, then went on and traveled to our son’s home for a couple of days. Less than a week later, she left us. It was such a blessing that she didn’t have to suffer long! She lived a long, full life and left a legacy of love with her many children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
The day of mom’s funeral, what made me tear up more than anything was the kindness and generosity toward our family from friends, extended family, and neighbors. What a support system we have and how blessed we are! I know mom is having a grand reunion with my Dad and others. I know we will all be together again someday, so this is just a temporary separation.
So, I’ll say it again…I hope to blog much more regularly! Here’s hoping life cooperates! 😊
Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
