Another year down and almost over...2022 July

  July 24, 2022

Wow--the year is more than half over and I have not been good ta blogging.

So in October10, 2021 I lost my best friend and mother to Covid.  I am heartbroken.  I can't believe she is gone.  I never imagined that I would lose her so early and for such a stupid thing.  She had a cold over her birthday-- I was going to surprise her-- but didn't want to catch the cold...If only...I will never know.  I kick myself everyday that I just didn't go...  I never got to see her until we let her go and then the hospital let us see her.  She looked so much like her mom... She died with her family at her bedside.  She never even woke up to know we were there.  I love and miss you so much Mom!
