Heartaches in the midst of joys...

I haven't blogged a lot lately. I've written before about how Michael's mom was dealing with failing health. She passed on July 25th. Our middle daughter was in Florida on a wonderful vacation with her BFF's family. Our youngest daughter's birthday was July 26th. It was quiet, simple, and wonderful. There were so many moments and photos I wanted to share. But it all seemed empty to blog about at those exact moments. I wanted to come up with just the right million words to share with the world about what my mother-in-law meant to me, to my husband, to her grandchildren. But the more I pondered, the more I realized that the most fitting tribute would be to respect how fiercely private she was. As it is I shared some pictures and comments on facebook. But blogging is my world, not hers. She wouldn't have liked me writing and sharing photos of her life. So, that is what I shall abide by.

Personally, I would like to thank the Good Lord for gifting my life with such a woman, who was an amazing grandmother to my children. And I thank her for teaching me so very many things with so few words.

I will share some of the joyous moments when our hearts are just a little lighter. Life is good. And we are just holding each other a little tighter these days <3

Blessings... Linda
