Around the House

Well, it’s been a while.  I didn’t expect to be away from the blog for so long, but two weeks ago this past Sunday my amazing Gramma passed away, and what a roller coaster it has been since.

There has been a lot of family time, a lot of reminiscing, a lot of tears…  We’ve come together and experienced all of this together.  In all of its sadness, it has also been beautiful.

I’ve gotten lots of snuggles from this little guy, and also my wonderful husband who has been by my side since I received the news.

My Gramma loved to paint, and this is something she did some years ago… With the dementia came more abstract artwork that is still pretty and special, just different.  She loved to paint flowers.

 Sort of a metaphor for life… just as some of my orchid blooms have withered away, there have been new blooms this past week or two.  I love that.
