Back from the abyss.....

Hi all out in blog land.
How are you all doing? Not that I have that many reading my

I just realized it has been over a month since I last posted. And what a month it has been.
My absence began with my grandmother having a severe stroke. This put my life into a bit of a tailspin. This great woman was my "mother" so to speak. She took me in when my mother proved too young to raise me and she showered me with her love and guidance.

Even at this age (40 in 8 days) I feel a need for the mother figure.

Anyway after a struggle to hang on for 6 days...she finally let this world of pain go and moved on to a better place.

Now the grieving begins. Most days are okay but occassionally I find I am sailing into the abyss and not seeing a shore near at all.

I guess that is just the nature of grieving....Its difficult letting go of anything of value....let alone someone you love.

But I just wanted to let you know....I AM BACK!
