Been A While......

I am so sorry it has been a while since I have blogged. I have had to deal with the lose of someone very close to me. Well while I was in WI, my Grandmother on my Mom's side had a stoke. It was caused by a pre-existing heart condition. Then on March 17th she died due to complications from the stoke. It has been very hard for me since I was very close to her. She lived in Jamaica and if you remember in June the kids went and spent a month with her. I am so glad I decide to let them go because they were able to spend some quality time getting to know her before she died. This is the first time I have had to deal with the death of someone so very close to me and boy is it hard. I miss her so much it hurts. I am told that eventually it will get easier but for now I can't imagine. I am also hurting for my Mom who was an only child and very close to her Mom. She has had some very hard days since we have come home and it hurts me that there is nothing I can do to ease her pain. I just pray that we can get past this. Hopeful the hurt will go away and the beautiful memories of such a sweet and beautiful lady will remain. OK, I have to go the tears are coming and I might be able to control them. I promise I will be back blogging regularly soon.

This is a picture form my 31st birthday party in October. My Grandma on the left and my Mom the right.

I love you Grandma and I love you Mom.
