MIA for Awhile...

Some of you are aware but I thought I would make a quick post to let everyone know that my mom passed away several weeks ago. I thought I would post this pretty picture of her.

Losing her has really been hard. She had dementia and was now living in a skilled nursing facility for the last 2 years. I know she is at peace now. Being there with her at the end was hard but I was able to have closure.

My mom and her sister shared a room in the nursing home and I know she must be lost without her. Here they were together on Thanksgiving a couple years ago.

I have been out of sorts for awhile now. It is strange to lose both my parents. I feel kind of like an orphan with no one that has loved me since I was born. I can't explain it but it is a strange feeling.

I haven't felt like doing any projects or blogging. I thought I better post a little something just to let everyone know what happened to me!

Anyway, my husband and kids have been great. We have been camping some and keeping busy. My oldest leaves for college one month from today so that has caused mixed feelings for me too.

So thank you to everyone for your support. I am amazed that I still have any followers! We'll see how things go and whether I am able to get back into blogging again.

Have a wonderful summer and give those close to you an extra kiss and hug!
