You'll have to forgive me for being in more than a bit of shock about this, but I have to call another Hugs hiatus owing to the sudden loss of my mum last night.
You never met such a generous, loving person in such a peaceful personality. And what a sense of humour! She's had some health problems the last few years as most people her age do, but they've never gotten her down - she could always make a joke about them. She adapted to everything, all her life.
I'll have to learn from her example and adapt to going on without her. I know it will be hard because I know she never stopped missing her own mum. But I'm sure I will find a way. It's just going to take a few days for me find my footing because even though I was sort of prepared... you're never prepared. You know?
I probably just need a week. I'll probably knit a lot. There will probably be some good pictures when I get back. Take care of yourselves while I'm gone, okay? And make some nice stuff.
