After the loss of my dad 5 years ago and the pain of watching my mother wither away from severe dementia and Alzheimers, tonight I find peace. My mom passed late this afternoon. I know she is no longer afraid, confused and mentally gone or in pain. My mom is at peace, and with her mind in tact with my dad and whole once more. I can finally find peace. May God be with my mom as she enters into heaven.
My husband and I bought a 1960's year old Colonial style farmhouse that we fell in love with. Over the years we have restored, added on to and gone through renovations. I am a mother of two, wife, teacher and writer. I write fiction and am the author of The Shoebox and the newly published The Eighth Summer. I have a third one in the works. I love writing, reading, gardening, blogging, searching for vintage things, baking, living a healthy lifestyle, taking care of animals and coffee. Alot of coffee.
