I can barely write this and have put it off as long as possible, but I think everyone who has visited me and left sweet comments deserves to know why I have been silent. On Friday January 27, my elderly parents were hit by a truck. The impact was on the passenger side where my mother was sitting. She was killed instantly. My father is in critical condition with chest injuries. I can't believe my mother is gone, she was taken in an instant. I'm grateful that she didn't suffer and I'm sure she was gone before she even realized what happened. My family is lost and dazed. My parents were married for 65 years I fear that my father will not be able to go on without her and his time with us will not be long. I have to be away from the blog for awhile while I try to cope and be of comfort and help to my family where I can. To everyone who has visited and to my new followers thanks for stopping by and thank you for honoring me by following my blog. I will get back to you all when I can.
