A new day

As much as we have been through in the last week, I have missed blogging.  I am so grateful for all of your kind words during this tough time!  Our friends and family were simply amazing to surround us with love!
One of my closest friends in the world Susan dropped everything and came for four days and watched my children while HD and I made all the arrangements and got everything done.  Susan doesn't like to be thanked for things, but she did so much for me I will always be very thankful for her!
Last friday Ruby Wife had her sweet baby.  I got to meet him on Sunday after everything was over, he is beautiful!
I wanted to let you all know I am still here, I am getting by.  I haven't really had anything to say, so I have been quite.
My kids are handling this all really well, Luke understands that his papaw is in heaven, he is comforted by that.  Bo doesn't understand why we are sad at all, he just says papaw is in heaven why are you sad that is really exciting!  And Daisy is still just to young to understand.
HD had to go back to work today, he has been off since last week.  I have felt a little lost without him today.  It might be that he has made me every cup of coffee, held my hand while I walked, made me sandwiches, cooked dinner, bathed the kids, talked to friends, made arrangements he did everything for me.
Please keep my Grandma in your prayers the up coming days are going to be very long for her.  My Mother  is staying with her right now while we make some decisions about the future, she will be moving in with us at the first of the year if our house doesn't sell before then.

So glad to have you blogging again.
I sure miss you already! Didn't get to spend as much time with you as I wanted due to being tired and all the packing and un-packing.
We'll have fun on Thanksgiving.

I'm glad you're back blogging, albeit tentatively.

And I'm glad you have such a strong support system. It will be a blessing to your Grandma!

In our thoughts....
