I am back
Hi everyone, I am back at home now. My yard is in bloom, the grass needs cutting, the weeds pulled and it's a reminder to me that life and time wait for no one. Some of you are aware that my father has recently passed away, what was supposed to be a simple hip surgery escalated into our worst nightmare. I now know how it feels to lose a parent,,,I don't think you have any idea until it happens to you, there is such a feeling of loss...maybe because it was so unexpected...we are not certain why he was taken from this world, but we do have peace in the fact that the intensive care unit nurses treated him with such wonderful care. We also are blessed in the knowledge that he is now in a better place. I don't think he will think the food is as good in heaven as my mothers! lol. My Dad was a farmer and he was 74. He worked on the land until the very end...how many people really get to do what they love to do. Our community was so supportive and we had a chance to reminisce about his life with alot of family and friends. We heard lots of stories we had not known before. I will treasure them, as I will treasure every moment I had with my Dad. I stayed with my mom for about 14 days and she has now gone to my other sisters. She is stronger than she knows! I guess we all are as each day we carry on, forward as we are meant to. My Dads dog was heartbroken, I took him daily for his runs...he was my connection to my dad. His spirit seems to have perked up some but I know he misses my Dad too. Hopefully our family can stay strong and remember the bonds that tie us all together. So I am okay, somewhat troubled and overwhelmed by the events since may 30. I hope we can all find peace and faith when we need it.
On to happier thoughts, I have missed you all and will be in touch with all very soon. Take Care for now! cinner!
