Absence

I want to thank all my blogging friends that have emailed me asking if everything is ok. I guess it is time to explain my absence.

My mother took a bad turn right before Christmas and never recovered. She left to be with the Lord on the 14th of January. I was with her and she went peacefully in her sleep.

I am so fortunate to have so many friends that helped me and are still helping me to get through this. I not only lost my mother, I lost my best friend and a piece of my heart that I don't want back.

Rest in Peace Mom. I love and miss you.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I had been wondering where you were and was really hoping this wasn't going to be the case for your absence.
