And another thing!
As I sit here this evening getting ready for bed I starting thinking about my mom. Now my mom passed in 2005 and I am so grateful that her and I got to talk a lot prior to her last breath. I believe the thing that I was thinking about is my mom and my dad both passed with all their thoughts. They did not have dementia or any other debilitating disease that kept them from talking. I really enjoyed them even though in my mind I knew she would not be there for long. We talked about when I was a little girl and how much trouble I was in for running away one time. (I went to the chicken coop and stayed all night) I never knew until my mom was sick that she was outside that chicken coop all night just in case I got scared. That brought a tear to my eye. As you can tell I was much closer to her than my dad. My dad left us when I was 16 and that was an awful thing. He told me prior to his death that he was sorry and I forgave him. So at least I had time to talk to both of them for hours and hours prior to them passing. As I look at my hands now I see my mom. The picture is of my grandmother ( my mom's mom) my brother James which just passed from alcoholism my sister Betty is the smaller child and me the oldest child. We also have a brother Chuck which is not in that picture. He is a year younger than me and he is mentally challenged. He lives in a group home near me. Gosh what a wonderful life I have! I am blessed!
I am a native West Virginian that loves gardening. I am 6 years away from retiring so I can garden some more. I have 2 flowers sales a year one in the Spring and one in the Fall. I make enough money to buy more flowers! We also have 5 cats and one dog that you will see in here!! I have started making handmade soap. This is something that feels so natural. I have been going to Craft Fairs and just love the people I meet and the things we talk about. Plus I work a full time job on a Behavioral Health Unit in my area.
