I am a mom of older children and have noticed that the time has come when I do not have the hustle and bustle of little ones constantly around my feet and life now seems to be a bit of a let down. Well life has changed and now I have more hustle and bustle then ever. I am the Grammy Nanny to my 3 grandsons.
I was savoring the time that was mine and now have to share it with everyone all over again. The growing pains are upon me again and trying to define who I am again. The upside is that I get to cuddle little ones again! I still haven't truly learned to hug myself yet nor to be understanding to my own feelings. Did anyone notice how hard it is to be nice and understanding to yourself? That being said I hope that you will be part of my journey into yet another part of my life.

My brother died

My brother passed away suddenly. I found out on Monday night by my sister who had to call the police because she or any of us in fact had not heard from him. My sister stayed in touch with him via phone and internet. He lives, I mean lived, in North Carolina and we all live in different states as well but my sister P really stayed in touch with him. It was very surreal when I got the call. You know he wasn't sick or taking meds or anything. He was 58. So we are all making arrangements for closure and to finish closing out his life. Wow, that sounds so weird. P is doing all the leg work and I am going to attempt to create an obituary and plan for a memorial service here in NJ. So, as you can see I am procrastinating. That being said it is time to close this and open Word.

I just want to let everyone know love those around you. Let your family and loved ones know that you love them. Live life, it is a gift. Don't throw it away.
