On A Personal Note

Hello lovelies. I’m sorry that I’ve been absent for the last few days. I wanted to let you know why, and that I may be absent for another couple of days. My grandmother passed away last Thursday… on my birthday actually. I think there’s a message in that somehow. I’m doing fine, for you concerned readers. She had a stroke last year, and was not doing well for the last few months. My family is glad that she is no longer suffering, and grateful for the 94 years that she had on this earth. I will write a post in her honor soon, but for now I just wanted to drop a note to let you all know.

(Our “Mombo” a few years ago with my sweet cousin Hannah and adorable niece Ally)

I went out of town this weekend and spent time with family. Now I’m playing catch up, and re-prioritizing some things. Please bear with me. You guys are dear to me, (yes, you!) so don’t go anywhere.

My heart goes out to you and your family. My gramma passed away right near my birthday and I wasn’t able to attend her funeral (long story), but was able to visit her grave. It’s so hard loosing your grandparents since they spoil you and love you with all their heart. The days leading up to my gramma’s death was so emotional on me, I actually made her a personalized gift for Christmas and express mailed it to her so that she could see in in the hospital. I keep a nice picture of my grandparents on our table when you come into the house and think about them often. If you loved your grandma as much as I did, than I know you are missing a huge piece of your heart!! ((Big hugs from a fellow TWIP))
