On our way we pass through Harper's Ferry which is a special place to all of us, so we took a few pictures along the way.
We had an amazing day on Saturday. Grandma was her feisty self, recognizing all of us and cuttin' up with everyone. We had strong hope after this terrific day. Her situation deteriorated Sunday and Monday. I had to return to Maine on Tuesday. My 78 yr old grandma, grampa's second wife and love of his life, passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning, March 12th, with family by her side. We are so grateful for the time we had with her on Saturday and Sunday. We all have special and fond memories of this tenacious woman; may she rest in sweet peace.
Me, Grampa, my brother
The Three Granddaughters
My brother, mommy and me
Three generations 10 years apart;
my mother, her sister, me, my cousin, my daughter and my cousins's son
It felt good to be with all of the family for those five days, reminiscing, laughing, crying and hoping. It gave us strength and peace.
My husband and I were trying to make it back for the service this weekend but Mother Nature was in a winter fury. We got almost 20 inches of snow on Thursday. It was too much weather from here to West Virginia. I will cherish the blessing of being able to be there for her on Saturday and Sunday.
I did some stitching on Love Never Fails during my travels. I did some planning out for a hooked mug mat for a swap. I will share pictures in my next post.
It has been a long and weary week. May everyone have a peaceful and productive day.
