Sad News.......

My husband's mother passed away earlier this afternoon. It was very peaceful and for that I am grateful as she had been in poor health for quite some time. God is a merciful God, and He decided it was time for her to go home.
I loved my mother-in-law very much. She danced to the beat of her own drum and was quite the character! She was full of wisdom and we spent many hours over the years, talking on the phone, and shared many of the same interests.
Bill was on his way to Virginia on a work-related trip and ended up changing his flight plans after talking with his Dad. Sadly, he didn't make it to the hospital before she passed away, but it looks like he'll be spending the next few days with his Dad, and I know my sister-in-law and her fiance are there as well.
I'm going to miss her but I know she's in a much better place, and I'd like to think she's running through a meadow of pretty flowers.......healthy, full of life, and bursting with joy.
That's what I believe, and that's what helps me deal with her loss. But one day I know I'll see her again, and others that have gone before her.

I love you, Mom, and you'll be in my heart forever.......


  1. So sorry for your loss. What beautiful memories she has left for her family to remember.

    1. Thanks, Dot. Yes, she was quite a lady and kept everyone on their toes!

  2. She definitely sounded like an AMAZING person! I'm so happy you had such a good relationship with her.. HUGS to all.

    And I just wanted to let you know that I've awarded you a Liebster Award for having such a lovely blog.

    1. Thanks, Becky. She was an amazing person and I was very lucky to have her in my life.

    But she's in a better place where she's no longer sick & in pain.
