This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

WW: Saying Goodbye



Today, I'm heading to my father-in-law's funeral.

This photo is from our wedding day. In looking at our wedding photos, I started to count the number of people who have died since that day. My great aunt K., my great uncle S., my great uncle B., our daughter, our best man G., my husband, and now my father-in-law.

Its a difficult thing to realize... so many deaths in such a short while...

But today, we shall say goodbye to my father-in-law, and lay him to rest.

~*~*~
Death is nothing at all,

I have only slipped into the next room.

Ter - I am so sorry. No one should have to deal with so much death and loss in such a short period of time (or in a lifetime for that matter). HUGS
