Apologies for being a little MIA last week. You know the sayin’ your mama probably taught you about “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”… well let’s just say the past two weeks have been tough.
I have such a love/hate relationship for fall. It is beautiful and full of festivities, but September through January are just rough for me. Sept = CJ’s birthday, Oct = Mom’s birthday, Nov = Thanksgiving, Dec = the anniversary of the accident and Christmas, Jan = my birthday… It’s all grouped together…
This week, we laid the 9th (of 10) of my grandmother’s siblings to rest. I know she was ready, she’s had a rough couple of years, and even though it was expected, and we know she is so much better off, it was still hard. Hard to believe her generation is almost completely gone. Hard to walk back in the same parlor at the funeral home where I last kissed Mom & CJ. But even out of all the pain, I am so very thankful for our family and the many many great memories. We are definitely one of a kind. Huge, but veryvery close. We may not see each other every weekend anymore, but we all we have each other’s back!
Here’s a look through the past week for you!
Lots of snuggles and errands. Freezer cooking and crafting. Bonfires with friends and packing boxes for operation Christmas child. Working and playing.
Here’s to a brand new week.
