Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Sadness in the family

Today, I am Thankful for my Mom. She is 82 years young.  She is  the youngest of 4 girls in a large family of 10. Several of her siblings have passed away   during  her life time, including her parents. She has had a few  illnesses as she ages, but She is a strong woman. I am especially thankful She is still  with us .  Yesterday her oldest sister of 90 died unexpectedly, we now know from cancer. She had not been feeling well for a few days.. My Aunt was a "Rock" in her family. Her family  nicknamed her that "Rocky". Aunt Alyce  had a good long life and lived it to the fullest with her children and grandchildren.  I know her absence will leave a large void in her immediate family and my heart aches for them today.  As Thanksgiving approaches  I can only think how grateful I am that I have close family ties and we have Mom still with us.  This year my Mom will be with her own remaining sister and nieces and nephews, as they gather around their table, they will celebrate the life and Love that  Aunt Alyce leaves behind.. RIP dear one..You will be missed by every one. ( she didn't want a service, just that later her family have a Big Party)...  That was so like her....

Thank you all for your kind words,   I appreciate them.
