I so wish I could meet each and every one of you and give you a big old hug for all your kind words and your prayers during these sad times in my life and that of my family. I felt love and comfort from all of you my blogland friends. And to those of you who were close at home, those of you who have been there when I needed to talk and you were only a phone call away, I can never say thank you enough for a listening ear, for the support you gave and for the love you have shown to me. There were days when it seemed you just knew I needed to go to lunch or to hear your voice, and there you were. From the bottom of my heart thank you first of all your love and friendship and for being there for me.
Mother had a very sweet ceremony today and was layed to rest. Thus ending the journey we started on actually several years ago and as the battle grew worse and worse as time progressed. She is at peace and tonight although there is a loss I can not explain, there is a feeling of relief. At the end of the service, Darbee Rae stood in front of all our friends and relatives and sang to Mother for the last time. She had been singing to her at every visit for as long as she could talk. Mother's favorite was "Jesus Loves Me" and Mother would clap and say Amen. The day before she passed even though she was unresponsive Darbee sang to her. Today she took that microphone and sang her little heart out to Nanny one more time. There was not a dry eye among the crowd. I was so proud of her.
She will definitely be missed and it will take a while for me to get back to a normal routine. But , I have gone as far with her as I could go and I did all I could do. I said goodbye with a heart full of sadness but with the assurance of seeing her again one day.
So ... with that said ... My Life Goes On. With the holidays ahead , I have so much I want to get done. My days will be busy and although I was getting an early start with my decorating, I have fallen behind. And I have a lot of blogs to read and catch up on,.
But I think tomorrow is a pajama day. Will be back on Monday to share more of our wonderful trip to the mountains. Hoping you all have a great weekend doing something fun with someone you love.
Until next time..... Hugs to you all!
