In honor of Mother's Day
So, this Mother's Day weekend has already gotten off to a terrible start. I woke to a text from my mother telling me to call her when I got up. I knew before even calling what happened. My great grandmother was gone. I can't even describe what an emotional year this has been with both sides of my family. We've lost too many loved ones lately...Chad's family included. And to make matters worse, it's almost Mother's Day. And I've had the looming reminder that we buried my other grandmother eight years ago this week. There's more. Just last week Chad lost his aunt and two days later I lost a great great aunt (my great grandmother's sister). All mothers. And grandmothers. Two were great grandmothers. And one a great great grandmother. All dearly loved and all will be dearly missed this Mother's Day.
