I was feeling a little emotional today… well, more like easily pissed at everything and nothing. When an elderly lady at the store called me “honey” and she touched my arm with the softest hands ever… I decided it wasn’t a coincidence. Yes, I’m one of THOSE people lol. My sweet grandma didn’t have a pissy bone in her body. Whether it’s TRUE or not, I’d like to think she sent me this lady, as a way to tell me, “cool it, honey.”

My sweet sweet Grandma passed away yesterday, and my children are also sick. It’s been a rough couple of days in my house and will likely be all week. I’m putting this out there just so you all know that I’m not ignoring my posts or yours, but I’ll likely spend little time here, at least until after this coming weekend when my family has had a chance to spend the time needed together.  She was the nicest most loving lady, and will be missed dearly. Your thoughts, love and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.


Where families smile, that’s where I’ll be,

You’ll feel the breeze and know it’s me.

The softest touch, a brush of love,

A sun kissed song, the purest dove.

With colors shining all around,

I see them now, no longer bound.

In peace I’ll let my body perish,

My soul hugs tightly to those…
