PLANS CHANGE ~ ~ ~

Today, is the Fort Lauren's Hook-in where I was going to vend for the first time. We can make all the plans we want but life intervenes ~

Tuesday evening, my husband's brother passed away. Gary had been dealing with brain cancer for a year and a half ~ he fought the battle and now his race is won. We're very sad ~ he was well-loved and respected ~ today family and friends will put him to rest. My husband, Sonny, is the oldest of eight brothers ~ now he's the oldest of five. Life is fleeting ~ live every day to it's fullest!

So sorry for the family's loss and know it must be terribly difficult for Sonny to try and keep the family comforted.

*****your words are very true...i'm the oldest of thirteen. we lost two within six
months of each other...breast cancer and car crash which took our sister, her husband and six children. now it is mid september...the time is going by fast. tell
sonny that they will be waiting for him when it is his turn!!! many blessings to your
family...it's really true when people wish for just one more hug.but here is something to ponder:in god's plan every life is long enough and every death is timely.and though you and i might wish for a longer life, god knows better. and-this is important-thought you and i may wish a longer life for our loved ones, they don't. ironically, the first to accept god's decision of death is the one who dies. while we are shaking heads in disbelief they are lifting hands in worship. while we are mourning at a grave, they are marveling at heaven. while we are questioning god, they are praising god! most sincerely, tom

Thank you, Saundra, Lauren and Tom. Your words ring very true with me, Tom ~ Sonny's brother clamped his mouth closed and wouldn't eat. Even though he appeared to not be conscious, I said that was his way of saying "I'm done now"! We're very clear that now Gary is with their daughter, who transitioned almost three years ago, his two brothers and their parents. We live life to the fullest but with the understanding that, for the most part, it isn't our choice as to how long we're here! Enjoy every day!

My condolences for your loss Alice. Even though we are only here temporarily, It's hard to say goodbye to our love ones. I sure your brother in law was ready for transition to a wonderful place where we will all go to someday in the not too distant future.
I'm sending you peace and love.
Hugs,
JB
