T’Other grand …

T’Other grand child comes today. My head is spinning. I’ve noticed either the washing machine or the dishwasher is running constantly lately. How great is summer! 

As we pass through each stage of grief, there is a tendency to feel a tiny bit of guilt about moving on. It too is natural, but don’t give in to it. Just as we would want our loved ones to move on in a healthy manner, so too our loved ones would want that for us. We each have too many family members left behind that need us to be healthy, and need us to be a good example for the next generation. I don’t think dying is as hard as living with grace and surviving the loss of someone you love so much. I could be wrong because I haven’t faced the dying part yet, but when I watch Alzheimer’s patients and their families, it is truly the families that suffer more in the end. 

Enjoy the hummingbirds and butterflies as they flutter by!
