You never know......

I guess it's a good thing we never know what life will bring us... what the future has in store for us.  My life as I knew it, has changed forever.  It will never be the same.
My dear sweet husband was taken from me so suddenly...
He passed away on Valentine's day.
 
Here we were on a happy occasion, at our youngest son's wedding.
This is the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with. 
I thank God everyday for my family and wonderful friends that are helping me get through this. 
 
Then just 5 weeks later, another death in the family...
This time it was my brother-in-law, John's older brother.
 
Here's a picture of them together, at a niece's wedding a few years ago.
 
Some day I hope I feel like blogging again, about quilts and other things I have been working on.  But not right now....

John was such a huge part of our lives. We all miss him. Mike told me he felt like his other dad died.
It will all take time.
And you will blog again, even if I have to come over and do it myself!

I'm so sorry to hear about this. I just lost a 54 year old friend this week, sudden massive heart attack. It is such a shock when they leave suddenly, no chance to say good-bye. There are grief stages to go through for you...and no, it will never be the same. Be kind to yourself on the journey.

Glad you stopped by today, remember you can stop over anytime. May you have many special memories to get through the not so easy days.

Thinking of you as you come up on a tough "anniversary". I hope you've been finding comfort lately.
