wow its been awhile

I thought that I would be able to blog every day this month, but there has been alot going on and well I just couldn't hang! so firs I would like to apologize to those faithful followers (if there are any) but here's whats going on...
on Thursday, November 13 my father in law (I guess that's what we can call him, he was my mother in laws boyfriend for the past 16 years, and the father of her youngest daughter) went in to get his gal bladder removed, he had been having stomach problems for the past few months, when they started the surgery they found out that he had stomach cancer, well passed stage 4, well he was having trouble breathing so they put a tube in to help him, he went to sleep and never woke up, they ended up putting him on life support and my mother in law and his daughter decided that he was much too proud of a man to go threw that sort of thing. He passed peacefully with no pain, surrounded by those that loved him. So we are pretty much busy, trying to get everything in order for his funeral later on this week...
Also on Friday, My grandfather passed away, (it was just a bad day all around) he had a triple by-pass about this time last year, he had a massive heart attack. He lived in Seattle Washington, so we aren't going to make it to his funeral....no worries he knows that we are thinking about him...
so thats where I have been, as soon as all of this clears up I will be back...
I'm Free
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.I'm following the path God has laid you see.I took His hand when I heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all.I could not stay another day.To laugh, to love, to work or play.Tasks left undone must stay that way.I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joys.A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.My life's been full, I savored much.Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.Lift up your hearts and peace to thee.God wanted me now; He set me free!

Well, I'm actually a "faithful follower". :D And I was beginning to wonder where you went. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I will be thinking about you.

Again, I'm so sorry for your family losses this week.
Sending you comforting love and light.
