What a Week

These past two weeks as my husband's cousin Cheryl said will go down in the
family history books. We buried Todd's dear sweet sweet grandmother on Tuesday
 and at the funeral his mom had symptoms of a stroke. She was taken to the hospital 
by ambulance during the funeral. They said she had brain swelling and had three masses on her brain 
 but as of todays scan they said they don't see anything which is absolutely fantastic 
 and nothing short of a possible miracle? Todd then spent the next 2 days
with only the help of either his brother and his son at separate times
moving his parents entire house 2 1/2 hours north. He fills my heart with
how much forgiveness he has in his soul and how 
he always comes through for those around him
regardless of the past. 

 So I walked in the door, weary to the bone from the events of the weeks and work,
 to tired for a walk but yearning for some fresh air and decided that a chair and table in 
this little spot is just the ticket to clear my head. 
I popped the door open and can hear the birds, 
I can even see them,
a beautiful

Grandma Violet was 96 years young and had 
a smile that would light up a room.  Even though
she said very little, her bear like hugs spoke volumes
of what was in her heart. She was an incredibly 
loved woman and myself and all her family will 
miss her deeply.
Rest in peace Grandma.
