Hard to believe it is the week of Easter 2014. Been a different year, last year dad and I were with Ruth and her family in Arizona. Not really sure that we are doing anything special this year. No matter what we do, we still have a great reason to celebrate Easter, because He IS RISEN!!! Hard to believe the sacrifice that He made for us. So for that we have a lot to celebrate!!

Missing Mom!

Just sitting here and just had over welling thoughts of my mom and how much I miss her. It's normal I know, but I am not one to talk about these things so makes it seem like I am not suppose to have these feelings. So anyway, just having these thoughts of mom it makes me sad. So glad for our memories, good and even the bad. Nothing and no one is perfect. Can you imagine if they were. Wow that would be awful lol

3rd Year Anniversary of Mom's death
*picture taken 11-2009*
Hard to believe, but it has been 3 years since mom passed. Sometimes it just seems like yesterday that I was  in the hospital room listening to her take that last breath. But then there is other times where is seems like I cant remember it. Such a hard balance between remembering that sad time and being happy we were able to be there, to being so sad that was the last memory I have of her.
I do not write this to be gloomy (if you know me at all you know that so is the opposite of me) but I write it more as a reminder for me. Because there is time that I really do think of the last time in the hospital and I can still hear those labored last breathes and I am sad. But there is those other times that I have to make myself remember those times. That is not a bad thing I don't think, I believe it is a human thing. Sometimes I have to make myself remember cause I almost (not really but seems like it) forget. And other times because I want to make myself remember. Although they ARE such sad memories, they are ones I NEVER want to forget. I know I am not the only one who thinks of her, there are lots of people who do, be them friends or her beloved family. Just the other day I got a text from Easton, my 7 (soon to be 8) year old nephew, he was on his moms phone and he sent a picture of gamma. He put with it, I am crying. So a sweet boy. I really know I am babbling here but it is nice to just write and remember her. But I will stop, maybe another time I will write more ( oh don't complain, you don't HAVE to read it. lol)

Wow, have not been on here in forev. Although I am not sure it really matters, as I do not think anyone really reads this. lol But it is nice to keep it updated. So since I last posted I have not been up to much really.
My sister who was in Florida by where dad and I were living, moved out to Arizona (November 2011) with her family. So dad and I talked about it and felt it was best for us to move back to Michigan. I felt like dad needs more then just me to help him with things. Case in point, a couple days after we decided to move back he fell. He was ok, but he prolly should have went to the doctor to be checked out, but he didnt want to schedule anything because he didnt want me to have to take him and miss work. So I felt that was a good example of needing to have other people around who would be able to help out. So we moved to Michigan (March 2012) with my sister and her husband. I was able to get a job within a month of moving here, Praise the Lord. And I just have to walk there, so that is great too.
We just sent Ruth and her family back to Arizona after they were here since the end of May for the summer. It sure was nice to see them again. Now it is time to get into the swing of things lol. Looking forward to fall again, been a few years. Of course I am not really looking forward to the cccold of the winter months, but I guess that is what happens when you move back to the north.

Here is a couple pictures. They were taken by my friend Holly. Who was out west visiting a friend of hers and caught up with Ruth and took some pictures of the threee's. I believe these were taken April, 2012.

Well I guess that kinda gets ya caught up on things. lol
