A sad day in our lives


Sometimes I need to just post about our everyday life. I try to have a positive approach here blogging and appreciate our weekly "likes" posts for that purpose but we had a death in our family a few days ago and it's like our lives came to an abrupt halt and we are still dealing with the changes.

My children's father ( my ex husband from 40 years ago) died on Thursday after a long illness. I have been helping my son and daughter wander through this difficult process of hospice, funeral homes, cleaning out property to be prepared for sale, realizing our immortality and of course, their loss.

I wish there was an easier way of dealing with all these processes but am so proud of how they have handled everything. This will be going on for months but they are strong adults, thank God.

As for myself, I feel bad he is gone and not here to enjoy their company.

There, I feel better getting my thoughts out in writing.

Hug your family tightly.


  1. Mary I am so very sorry for your family's loss. It is always so difficult to lose a parent. Blessings to you and yours.

  2. Great job Mary... helping our children transition and just be there is so important. Even when they/we are adults.
