What I have learned


As most of you know we have had a couple of tough losses in our family on both sides, but from both of these people that I love who we have lost I have learned an important lesson on life. During the last days of my grandmas life she was pretty much confined to her comfy chair and with my mother in law Tina she was stuck in bed unless someone picked her up and put her in her chair. Neither of them had any choice in this both of them were in a great deal of pain and couldn't move much in the last days. I decided that if that is my future (and you never know it could be) i want to say that I lived my life if I am stuck in a chair for my last days I want to look back on that time I went for a walk with my kids and dog or the time when we went to Two Moon as a family not that I wasted this precious gift of life on the tv or just being bored life is too short to waste (my mother in law was only 44) and you never know when it could happen. I miss them both so much but all I have I have of them was the memories and the lessons they taught me this was only one of them.

I am so sorry for your losses. It's the hardest thing ever to bear when loved ones leave. But congratulations on your pregnancy.
