It's been a few days now since we said our goodbyes to Phil's Mom. It was incredibly hard.
Reading stories together
We had an excellent time together enjoying each others company.
Grammy getting her hair done
In the years since we've been married we've never lived closer than a 5 1/2 hour drive to any of our family. Time with family is special for us. That also makes it hard to say goodbye even in normal circumstances.
Playing video games together
We have explained things to our oldest two boys (the youngest still being too young to understand). They understood what saying goodbye this time would mean. There were a lot of tears. It was heartbreaking all around. There is no fixing heartache like this, only doing your best to comfort and help them continue on.
Playing chess and coloring
Everyone is back home now. Life moves on for all of us. We're so grateful for the gift of time and alertness that we were given. It was more than we thought we were going to have.
