Yesterday was a very dreary day on so many levels. Happily I had soap boxes to pack so I kept busy.
Not only was it raining but it was also the day after The Mister's 97 year old mom went gently into that good night. It was a shock. No one ever expected her to go anywhere ever. She was a force of nature. She worked into her 80's as a bus aide for special students. She lived at home, on her own up until this last illness that sent her to the hospital last week. I hope Daughter inherited her genes.
The Mister had to go take care of all the heartbreaking details with his family so I had plenty of quiet time to myself. If you signed up for the giveaway your box will be on it's way tomorrow.
The curing racks are emptying fast and even though I said there would be no more soap until fall, look at the free samples that came with my last order of oils. Summer soap? Sounds like a plan. I need a diversion.
Sorry for your loss.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry for your families loss. It's never easy. It sounds like she lived quite a full life. How amazing that you kept on packing soap. Not much slows you down!ReplyDelete
Deb, I am so sorry for your loss. Your affection for her is evident in the way you wrote about her. I hope your memories of her will blunt the pain of her passing.ReplyDelete
Oh, what an amazing life she led! I'm sure your DH is so sad. Nothing like soap to give you some calm!ReplyDelete
What a great picture of your mother in law - she looks so pretty and, perhaps, a bit spunky (her eyes make me think of spunky). Wishing you and the Mister lots of pleasant memories to help you through this time. Sending hugs.ReplyDelete
I'm very sorry for your loss! 97 and still in her home - I don't think you can ask for more!ReplyDelete
Hugs to you all. A life well lived. Her smile says it all!!!!! It is good to see some age with their minds intact right?ReplyDelete
So sorry for your loss. She sounds like my MIL, a force and such an amazing person.ReplyDelete
I'm really sorry for you and your family. She sounds like an amazing woman. Summer soaps sound wonderful as well. Dive into the distraction my friend. I'm around the corner if you need any support.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear of The Mister's moms passing. It's pretty amazing that she remained in her home that long. You can definately see the twinkle in her eyes in that picture of her. Sounds as though you have a lot of good memories to hang on to.ReplyDelete
My condolences on the loss of your MIL. It sounds like she was an amazing woman. Your daughter is SO pretty!ReplyDelete
