2 Years Ago Today...

Despite all of my errands I have to run today, I take a few moments to myself as I am writing this blog to reflect on my late paternal grandfather, Robert F. R. 2 years ago on this day, he passed away peacefully in his living room as my grandma was making him breakfast. I will never forget it when my dad got that phone call saying that he has passed...even 2 years later I still feel that ache, I really miss him, and I wish I saw him right before he died, but I can't change the past, what's done is done. I am taking an hour road trip today to visit my folks and sister and I will also visit his grave. Earth's loss is heaven's gain...
On a lighter note, I am excited to see my mom, my dad, and my baby sister...mom and I are going to this cute fabric shop called "The Quilting Bee" and have some fun mother daughter time! I will be sleeping in my old bed tonight, of course I will miss my hubby 60 miles away...

I will be thinking about you today. My mother died last January on the 19th so I can relate. I hope you and your mom have a great day together.

You couldn't have said it better honey...earth's loss is heaven's gain.

May the angels keep you safe and comforted tonight.

Big hugs to Mom!
