Checking In

I'm just checking in before I check out. Life can be very interesting. You can have the highest of highs and the lowest of lows almost at the same time. Ten days ago my youngest got engaged to be married--November 29th, and today I found out my dear mother has cancer. I'm probably not going to be blogging for the foreseeable future, so I thought I would make that announcement in case anyone wonders what happened to the Matriarchal Madwoman. I'm flying out on the first flight to Salt Lake tomorrow and in between times there, will be planning a lovely wedding. I'm hoping to check back in but right now I can't even think about it.....

I'll miss your insights here....so please come back soon. In the meantime, your thoughts on the ups and downs of life will be pondered by me. It is so true!

Don't worry about the wedding, Mom. We'll take up the slack. Unless we can't decide between chartreuse or pomagranate.

Jk.

Love you tons, hope you have a safe flight. Give Grandma a gigantic hug from me. You're in our prayers.

Mourning with those that mourn and rejoicing with those that rejoice. It's just kinda hard to do both at the same time. Hugs to you Marilyn and prayers for you and your loved ones.
