This summer brought a focus on family as our daughter Florrie gave birth to Leo in late June. Florrie, Annabelle and Leo spent three weeks at the cabin in Colorado with us. We spent weeks in Atlanta and Colorado helping out with grandkids. It is so wonderful to bring our three granddaughters together. Now, a grandson arrives. So, my very infrequent postings were as a result of this focus on family.
The night we returned to Atlanta, my mother went into the hospital. She spent eight days there, and then came home to hospice care. She died peacefully October 18. She taught me what unconditional love looks like. God bless her and bring her home.
My mother was named after her father.
