Getting back to daily life

I've been back in Scotland for the past few weeks. My mother had been sick for a while but died suddenly from something other than what she was being treated for. The funeral service was lovely and  her ashes are now interred beside her mother. I had a good visit with my father, siblings and other relatives and friends. We were able to get much accomplished to help my dad and hopefully make his physical life around the house and garden a bit easier for him.
School starts back up tomorrow for my son, my daughter is coming for a visit, and some other family things need taken care of so I will not be blogging much from here for a while.

I'm sorry you've lost your Mother. Expected or not- it's a difficult adjustment. She remains in the hearts of her loving family, and will never be far from your thoughts.

I'm so sorry about your mother. I keep peeking in to see if you are all right. Will you be able to resume your blog?
