I am so lucky and so loved.
Happy Mother’s Day to all, including/especially Dee.

FireDad’s Aunt B passed away last night around midnight. She fought a hard fight against ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gherig’s disease. I want to say something wonderful and heartfelt but the truth is that this being the third death in our family in three months and 20 days, well, I’m all worded out.
Instead, a reminder, mostly for myself.
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers during this time. We’re understandably tired of death and grieving.
Don’t forget to enter our Mother’s Day giveaway. I could use the happiness of gifting something to someone this weekend.
