Oh, my lands! Lyn! I have heard (read) you speak of your mom so much (maybe it was in the past?) I did not know she passed. I know it's hard. And all of these sad, sad times popping up, anniversaries, passing of one so young (oh, my...I am so sorry for the young mom left with two small children. I know it must be sad remembering all of these things all at once. I always try to forego the sadness by remembering fun things that I did and had with that particular person. I am so grateful to have my memories when so many others don't. I will read your memorial to your mother. I know you loved her and worked so hard for her. She is at peace now and truely enjoying her rebirth!
I had been so very sick. I just couldn't sit at the computer. In and out of the hospital with my stinkin' pancreas! Then we had big winds that blew down our fence, rennovations began...new fence, new floors through out the house excet for the bedrooms and now it is painting fest! All of our furniture..including my computer, was stored in the garage. So I have either been sick, or tired or sick and tired LOL! And just recently, my beloved Chihuahua dog, Peanut, died. She died in trying to deliver pups. She was at the Veterinary hospital, but they could not revive her stopped little heart. All three of her puppies were still born.
