Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers. I hope your day is special.

Mother's Day Weekend

Our Mother's Day weekend celebration started on Saturday with us heading out of town to eat with my in-laws (mom, dad, sister & brother in law). We ate at a steakhouse in a small town about 2 hours from here. Lunch was yummy and I will be eating mine at least once more this week (huge chicken fried steak. . .yummy). Once lunch was finished, we headed to Mr. Giggles sister's house for some yummy dessert. We visited for a while (Mr. G and I both fell asleep on the couch. I haven't been feeling good but I am feeling better today) and then headed home. It was a nice day but a long day.

Today we met my Dad's Mom, Mom's Mom, Dad's older brother, wife, daughter and grand daughter, Dad's younger brother and wife, and RAW at a BBQ place here in town and had another yummy lunch. We also had birthday cake because today was my Uncle's birthday. It was nice to visit with everyone. We hadn't seen most of them since the funeral.

I can not begin to tell you how hard today has been. I think I have cried a bucket of tears since we got home from church tonight and I have had time to think. I miss my Mom every day but today even more so. I bought her a butterfly plant to plant at the cemetery after we get her headstone put in. Mom loved butterfly plants but had a hard time getting them to grow at her house (which was odd because my Mom could grow anything), it is pink and I hope it grows into a beautiful plant. Today is also hard because I want so much to be a mom myself. I wish I knew what God's plan for us is. I need my Mom's hug and encouraging words today.

I want to thank those who continue to keep us in your prayers. I appreciate it because some days, knowing that you are thinking and praying are what gets me through the day.

Have a good week friends.

I saw your blog on Donna's site. I am so sorry that you have lost your mom. I lost my grandmother a month and half ago and my whole world crumbled. I started writing my blog as she was dying and now it seems to be a chronicle of my grief. It's helped me a lot to get my grief out there. I've had to make myself keep writing about it. I think the world expects us to get over death quickly, but it actually takes a long time to heal. You are in my prayers.

Thanks for stopping by. I have stopped by and read some of your blog about your grandmother. I also have a blog that chronicles our journey as a family through my Mom's illness and death. It has been hard to continue but I do, not everyday like before but a couple of times a week. If you want to drop by there it is
Thank you for the prayers. I struggle daily and need all the help I can get.

Come back by and visit :)
