A Sad Update.

January 31, 2020

My husband is a gem. Kind, thoughtful, caring, respectful and sensitive. A fully engaged husband and father. He treats me like a princess (even when I don’t deserve it), and he even makes our bed everyday so I don’t have to.

I know that much of the reason he is this way is because of his mother. She taught him to honor and respect others, especially women. As a boy (an only child) she took him with her to exercise classes, art classes, and they did lots of shopping together. I know this is why he’s a far better shopper than I am!

We will lay his mother to rest today, having lost her earlier this week to the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. It’s been a multi year battle, and the last few months and especially weeks have been particularly excruciating.

It is a blessing that she is no longer in pain and no longer suffering. I’ve grown used to being a motherless daughter over the past 5 years. Now he will navigate what it means to be a motherless son.

No matter how much time you have, it’s never enough. ❤️

Other than pre-scheduled posts, I’ve been quieter than usual here this week, and this is why. Looking forward to reconnecting with you all next week.
