I miss my both my Grandmas more than usual in May, both their birthdays were in May -one Grandma's fell on Mother's Day often.
I miss my Mother-In-Law's presence in our lives more this year than probably will in the future. The first anniversary of her death is looming.
And this year I am so GRATEFUL that my Mom is well, here on Earth with us kiddos. After her medical scare this spring and some days/nights not knowing how she was going to come out of Intensive Care or when...I am feeling quite blessed. Today we will gather - us sisters and our families - to do the egg hunt my mom (and dad when he was alive) does for our kids each year. Even the older kids love it - candy and money in eggs, what's not to love? We will also be doing a hot dog/burger bbq and hang for awhile. And another "best part" of that - I will be spending the day with my son! It's be awhile since he and I hung out for more than 10 minutes :0) and I am looking forward to him waking soon - he is making breakfast.
