Dear friends, so sorry for my absence as of late.  I wish I could say that it is because I have been working on an incredible DIY project that would blow your mind, but that is not the case.  I did finally get started on priming and painting the kitchen cabinets, a job I had been DREADING, but that had to be put on hold.  I got them primed a week ago Friday and was half way through the first coat of paint Saturday morning when I received a call that my mother had suffered a massive stroke and was in the hospital.  I dropped the paint brush and immediately headed for Illinois.

Mom passed away on Wednesday, March 12, 2014.  We had her funeral yesterday, March 17, 2014.  I miss her terribly but I am comforted in knowing that she is in a better place and is safe in the arms of the Lord.  I guess that is the only thing that helps me to hold back the tears.

This is a hard post to write and I am not looking for sympathy.  I just wanted to take a moment to tell you that LIFE IS BUT A VAPOR and encourage you to call your mother today to tell her how much she means to you.

I hope to be back soon with those kitchen updates.  Until then, cherish the ones you love.

  1. we probably will never meet, but as one daughter to another, sending love and prayers - my mother is going to be 93 in a couple of months, and I needed your comments to remind me how short life really is - when I get annoyed or short on patience, God always pokes me in the ribs and says "did you hear that?"

    thanks, from Judy in Fort Worth


I LOVE hearing from you...please leave me a comment!
