Happy Friday

Happy Friday everyone! It's a sunny day here in my neck of the woods and I'm sitting outside for awhile to get some fresh air. I desperately need a break from all the stress and sadness in our house with mom being in hospice. Everyone is trying hard to keep to our normal routine so I thought it would be nice to sit here for a short while and see what's going on and distract myself. I have relatives coming for the weekend so they can pay a visit and say good-bye to my mom. It's sad that she won't know they are there but it will be good for all of us to have company and be busy. Hope things are going well with you and sending some smiles

It good to sit by yourself for a while and gather some inner strength. No sitting out here, way too windy and chilly.

It was nice to sit outside and gather my thoughts but now it's just too windy to sit out. Glad I took advantage this morning

It is a very difficult time. You and your mom have been in my thoughts. I am glad that you have relatives coming over the weekend. It is good to have family near at a time like this.
