a NEW (but sad) phase of life

momfuneralflowers

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!

  2. I’m so sorry to read this. My mother passed away in October (as with your mother, after a brief illness) and my father a little over a year before that. It’s a new (but sad) part of our lives, but filled with happy memories too. Sending you sympathy and good thoughts.
