I'll be out...

I am checking in, not making excuses, just letting you all know where I am...

My best friend, Jodi had her baby girl on Tuesday. Jillian Grace. She visited with them for 22 hours before passing away. Even though we knew the outcome it is still hard to believe the time has come, and hard for them to say goodbye to a baby they had just gotten to love. Please say a prayer for the family, the funeral is this weekend.

Secondly, very unexpectedly one of my favorite aunts, Aunt Elsie, passed away. It still seems unreal to me. It hasn't really sunk in. She was the aunt that you could sit and talk to about anything. {I had many a talks with her at the kitchen table} She was the aunt that FILLED my e-mail inbox with forwards :) {Gosh, I never thought I'd miss those.} She was my aunt that would tell us stories about my grandma and grandpa. {She wanted us to know everything about them} She was the aunt that along with my grandma taught me to crochet. {Thanks, Elsie} But most importantly, she was the aunt if you needed ANYTHING she would have the answer or help you out. So, I will be traveling to MN for that funeral as well.

So if you don't hear from me, don't worry, I'll post again soon. In the meantime, I will be with my family and friend.

8 friends had to say...:

Sorry to hear of the losses of your aunt and friend's baby. I went to Jodi's blog and read some of her posts. What a strong mom with such a wonderful attitude while all this was going on, although I'm sure it is extremely hard. I will pray for Jodi and your Aunt Elsie.
