Some sad news to share ...

So I haven't been around much lately ... again :(.

These months have been incredibly difficult for my family.  Our beautiful Mum became critically ill & we sadly lost her two weeks ago.  I really don't know where to begin or what to say.  For my entire life my Mum has been just a short drive away ... now she's not :(.

I take comfort in knowing that we were there every day that she was in hospital, a ninety minute drive each way.  We were able to spend hours & hours just hanging out.  Days seem to fill quickly with lots of
busy-ness ... so it was really special to be able to just stop & spend time together.  Sucks though that it takes that to make us slow down.  Lesson learnt :(!

These past weeks have been such a rollercoaster of emotions.  But we are so very thankful for that time.
Time that left no doubt how much we as a family mean to each other.  So today we mourn someone who is
worth every ounce of our sadness. A woman who was exactly what a wife, mum, friend & especially what a grandma should be.  We consider ourselves the lucky ones.  Mum, we love you with all of our hearts & you will be forever missed.

Oh Vicki I am so sorry to hear your sad news. Losing someone is always so hard but when it is your Mum it is just so incredibly heartbreaking. I think we believe our Mum's will always be here with us. She will always be in your heart, forever and I'm sure remembering the good times will help you through it.
