Loss of a Loved One & Happy Anniversary

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I've been away from blogland for a few days...

My hubby's grandma passed this last Monday & we had to travel up north for the funeral this weekend!

Grandma Ione had been sick for awhile & her passing was kind of expected, but nonetheless it was a difficult weekend for my husband's family. She was a wonderful woman with a kind heart & a beautiful spirit!

She really had a rough time for the last couple of years....
She underwent numerous surgeries and has been in & out of the hopsital more times than we can count, but she is now in a place where there is no more pain.... no more suffering!

 I know she has now reunited with her husband, Don, and her daughter, Vicki, who passed more than 30 years ago....what a wonderful time they must be having!! 

For that....we celebrate!! 

And we thank God for the wonderful gift of eternal life that he has given us through his son Jesus Christ! We find comfort in knowing that our loss is His gain & in Heaven she lives on!

On a lighter note...

My hubby & I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary yesterday!

It's hard to believe we've been married six years already!!

I just wanted to take time out to tell him how thankful I am that God has placed him in my life! He is a wonderful husband & father and he works so hard to provide for our family!

This past August when our second son was born, he made it possible for me to become a stay-at-home mommy and leave my career as a nurse.  For that... I am forever grateful!! Being at home with my children is all I've ever wanted and without my husband's hardwork, it would have never been possible!!

Bobby, you are my best friend & I love you with all my heart!!

Happy Anniversary Babe!!

Looking forward to many more years together!!!
