On Monday my grandmother passed away after living with Alzheimer’s for the last few years. I’m sad, really sad, but I’m glad she no longer has to live that quality of life. She left my grandfather behind which is heartbreaking.
The last few days have been tough on my poor mommy. I’ve been home since Monday night spending time with her.
The long and short of it is I’m going out to California this weekend for the funeral and to be with my family. I hate to say it, but I’m excited to see my family, despite the circumstances. We haven’t all been together since 1998.
So basically this is a long-winded update to let you know I won’t be around much. Thank you all for sticking around and you’ll hear regularly from me next week.
Fall in love with flowers and the rain and the smell of a new book. Fall in love with the bitterness of coffee and sweetness of honey. Fall in love with the way the stars laugh and the sun shines. Fall in love with breathing and living.
But please don’t think you need to fall in love with someone. Don’t fall in love with the idea of being in love.”
