just checking in
« on: August 01, 2018, 10:34:20 AM »
Just thought I would check in. Haven't been here in years. Grandkids just graduated from school. I am still working just can't seem to quit.  I have to be kept busy.  Going to go to my sisters this weekend for a 5K walk/ Run.  My mom died 2 yrs ago in May, My MIL died 2 yrs ago in Nov, and My BIL died 1.5 yrs ago in Feb. There was a lot of not so good days. We now are at the top of the chain so to say, Everyone above us is gone.  We are the oldest now.  Hubby not doing so well.  He has tremors and shakes a lot. talk more later hugs to all and Bless all the new ones on this journey.

Hi LaVonne,

You sure are busy...wow. A lot going on. I understand what you mean by being at the top of the chain. My BIL just died in July and my sister is just devastated. But my greatest losses, of course are my children. We never know what may come around the next corner and what we will need to live with.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing what's been going on with you and yours. I always love hearing from you.

Hugs & Love to you, :love9:
Terry

LaVonne,
My SIL who just lost her 2nd child said that we have more upstairs than down here with us. As we age that is the truth. I agree with you Terry that every other loss pales in comparison to losing our children. We just hang in and try to make the most of life and enjoy the blessings that we do have.
