Goodbye Mom

I’ve been a bit less active in the blogosphere than usual lately but I had a very good reason…my Mom was dying.

My mother has been battling several serious health issues over the last few years and she had deteriorated significantly in recent months.  She was no longer able to live on her own (even with my sister living with and caring for her) so we moved her to a long term care facility back in March. That was actually good for us because we knew she was safe and being cared for. Plus she was only about 2 miles away instead of 40 miles, so it was obviously a lot easier to see her.

On July 4th, my mom passed away peacefully in her hospital room.  It has been a difficult time for my family but it is also a relief to know she is no longer suffering.

Right now I don’t feel particularly motivated but I think I’ll dive back full steam into Wealthy Turtle because it’s good to keep busy and not sit around feeling sorry for yourself.

Anyway, that’s all I have today. RIP Mom.  :(
