Hi Everyone!

I returned home last night totally exhausted. My sister is doing OK and getting things readjusted with her husband's passing. Thank all of you again for the wonderful emails and good wishes.

A great surprise came to me while in CA. My sister and her husband had a triped planned to Mexico with my mom. Two days before his passing he told my sister, "If I can't make it to Mexico to be sure to take your sister in my place." Well, that is what happened. My sister, mom, and I flew out to Peurto Vallarta. We had the best week together! It was bitter sweet for my sister but all in all it was a good trip for her. Now the three of us are planning a trip every year. We are thinking of Spain for next year.

So now I have to get back into the swing of things and back to normal living. LOL!

I will be announcing the winner of the Dec comment contest in the next few days. Sorry it is late.

  1. I'm glad you are back & it was lovely that you got to spend time with your sister. I think it was important for her to have you with her & to really take that vacation. I know when my Dad died, we went to Florida only a week after his funeral. Some family members thought it wrong, but it helped me so much being someplace different. I know it helped your sister.

  2. Thanks so much Dot. The trip was very good for my sister. She had time to just get away from the home front. When we returned she was ready to dig in and get things organized. I am glad to hear that you took a trip as well. I think it is a good thing to do when we loose our loved ones.
    Talk to you soon
