Missing Mom

Miss you Mom!
 I have not been working on much for projects this past summer or fall due to the illness of my mom and her passing into glory on September 2nd.
  Mom has been living with Russ and I for the past 4 years. It has been such a blessing to have her here with us.She loved to read and enjoyed her family getting together for whatever occasion or event. She was a painter, and played the piano ( self-taught). She would walk around the flower gardens and enjoy the spring when plants would begin sprouting up. I shall miss her very much.
  The stress of her  illness and her passing was difficult  for us all. As a result I ended up with shingles. A mild case thank the Lord, for I had the vaccine two years ago. I am now dealing with Vertigo. Not a pleasant feeling to have at all.
   But time and life go on. The hard part of losing someone you love is the moving on without them. When I am on the computer in the early hours of the morning, I hear a creak in the house and I forget and think it is Mom stirring. I am not sure I  will ever get over that feeling of her presence.  Not sure I want to either.
   Anyway, I have not really done much of anything in the way of project. I have worked on a few cards that I have given to people for various reasons. I will post those another time.
Love her so much...
 My greatest joy right now is babysitting for our granddaughter, Evy. She is such a blessing to our family.
We see her every Tuesday and Thursday. I love her expressions and how everything is new to her.
  She loves Micky Mouse and is so enthralled when the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse comes on TV. Music is another treat for her. The songs on that show will stop her in her tracks to listen to the music.
   I think seeing her and watching her grow has helped me to deal with losing my mom. Family and friends are a great comfort too.
   I am feeling ready to start paper crafting again now that I am on the mend. My next post will hopefully  have some pictures of  projects that I have started and not yet  finished finally done. Til the next posting then...
