Wish you were here

Do you know the Pink Floyd song I named this post after? There is a line that says, “Like two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year.” I don’t know why, but I really like that song. Weird.

Anyway, I do have a reason for not posting for so long. I mean I’ve posted, but just a picture here and there. Life has just been hard and frustrating and busy lately.

On Monday the peanut ran out the front door chasing the dog and almost ran into the very busy (people driving 60mph) street in front of my house. Fortunately we have a long driveway! She has never left my side like that before so you know my front door has triple locks on it now!

On Wednesday our mailbox got hit out of who knows where so we had to replace that. Now our lawn mower won’t start, which may send us over the edge as our lawn is way too long! Hopefully we can get that fixed pronto!

Like I said in my photohunters post, we had to give up the dog. Poor Michael was so upset. He looked for anyway to keep him, we just couldn’t for safety reasons.

That same day we got a call at 2 am that his grandma had passed away. Although we knew it was going to be coming last week, it was still terribly sad. She was the kind of grandmother that you wish you had. So kind to everybody all the time. Just welcoming no matter who you were, she wasn’t judgemental at all. Really had a heart to serve Jesus and lived that way. I really loved his grandmother and wish I had had longer with her.
So, she died on Thursday morning, the viewing was on Friday in Louisville, KY and the funeral was there on Saturday. That’s about a two and a half hour drive so we stayed the night. Spent some time with his family, they were all heartbroken too. She was really the one that kept the family together, as is the case with so many mommas.
Grandma will really be missed!

    Please accept my condolences on the passing of Michael’s gram. Grams are special people. Sounds like you have had a run of it. And you come by and affirm me? Thank you so much for that.Serf ‘rett gave me a wonderful insight. He told me that “There is no panic in heaven over this situation.” If only we could remember that and believe it to be the best way. We are so mortal!Bless you, Amy, gail
