The reminder of the weekend with my family went by faster than the blink of an eye. They took a trip to the beach, thenWe went to San Antonio Winery to get some wine for my sister in law and niece. My bro and his family went to visit relatives from Friday night to Sunday evening, so during this time I went to celebrate Vanessa’s born day, but more of than in another post.
When they returned Sunday evening, we hung out for a few more hours before they began their trek back to Oregon around 8:30pm. They wanted to avoid the possible icy mountain areas at night so leaving at this time would have them drive through the mountains in the day time.
The weekend went by too fast. I enjoyed spending these few days with them. It really enforced the love I have for my family. No matter what, we will be there for one another. Nothing and NO ONE will tear us apart. Luckily this wasn’t a goodbye, just an Until Next Time!
Two years ago today, one of my dearest and closest friends lost her mother. Two years…. It’s strange how quick time has gone by.
I can’t even begin to imagine the feeling of losing a mother. Or father. I would be devastated and wouldn’t know how to function. The thought scares me because I know that my parents won’t be here with me forever. I know I will have to face that one day and it doesn’t ever get easier. More for me because my father has been ill for many years and has been in and out of the hospital with a couple of scares along the way.
I cried earlier, as I wrote in a card I will give to my friend and her family. I can’t remember the last time I cried, but all the memories I had with her mother just came flooding in and out poured the tears.
RIP Anita. I know that heaven has gained one of its most beautiful angels I’ve had the pleasure of meeting on this Earth.
