Quilt With Us

I cannot believe that it has been so long since I have been on QWU to share with you all.  A lot has happened in the last year.  I went home to PEI last January and spend Jan. - April with my Mom.  In August, she took a stroke and was coming along but ended up with pneumonia and we lost her on August 26.  Brent and I left on the Wed. and drove straight home 29 hours on the road but got home while she was still able to know that we were there and was so happy to see Snickers.  My sister had gone special permission for us to take him into the hospital to see her.  That was Thurs. night and by Sat. night she didn't know anyone was there and by Mon. morning she succumbed to death.  Our loss is heaven's gain but I tell you it is one big loss for us.  My sister and I are having a real rough time with this void in our lives.  This is the time of year that Mom would have been north with us.  My brother, well, who would know eh?  Him and Mom were very close so maybe he is feeling it more than he lets on.  My girlfriend lost her Mom a couple of years ago and she said you will never know the loss until you lose your Mom.  She is so right!  That was pretty well our 2013.  We often wonder what 2014 will bring our way but thankful that God knows what is best and every day is in His Hands.

As we are almost done the first month of 2014, I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and wish God's richest blessing on your lives throughout this year.

Linda,,, so sorry for your loss.  My mother passed on Aug 23, and the hardest thing was when I finished a quilt top, and I couldn't show it to her.   I did pass a garage sale the day after she passed,,, stopped,,, purchased a box with unfinished quilts and pieces in it.  As I left the sale, I raised my head, and said thanks mom.   When I got home,,, I realized there was 10 different tops, pieces, etc in this box!!!  All for $75.00

I'm so sorry for your loss.  I lost my dad Dec 1st 2012.  Hands down the hardest thing I've ever gone through in my life.  I miss him every single day.

Glad your back Linda.  Your mother is not with you physically but she will always be in your heart and mind.  They say laughter is the best medicine and I'm finding that to be true when I think of Mum and Dad in days gone by.  My brother and I always dig up funny stories about our parents that puts a smile on our face.  Healing will come in due time. It's O.K. to grieve.

I know the loss is difficult. Just glad you had the time with her and that you have many years of memories to draw on and remember.  I hope 2014 will be full of hope and joys for you.

Linda, good to hear from you.  Saddened about your Mother.

I'm sorry for your loss.  May the beautiful memories you have of her encourage you through this time.  I'm glad you have the support of a loving family to walk with you through the grief.  I've learned in our family that we each grieve very differently.  Those who don't express it well don't love any less or feel any less deeply, they are just more private about showing it to others.

You remind us through your loss, not to take time with family and friends for granted. My parents are 83 and still going strong. So very sorry for your loss.
