Happy 2014

2013 was a very stressful year to start with Brian had issues with his job..Daddy at the age of 93 was starting to decline which I saw coming...and I was stuck in the middle of both trying to maintain a calm and functioning home.
My work was stressful, we had layoffs which was very hard on everyone.  My good friend Jimmy was laid off in Feb 13 and it really rocked the whole department. 
I kept moving forward keeping my heart open to the Lord who gave me the strength to keep my head on straight.
At the end of Aug. daddy was admitted to Boulder City Hospital with a nasty UTI (urinary tract infection) with medication that was clearing up and the journey began for him.
A few days into Sept. I found myself at the hospital with daddy he had entered the world of Dementia and was wanting to go home to the Lord and mother.
 On 11-04-13 daddy went home very peacefully and it was such a relief that his struggle to hang on had come to an end.
Today my nieces' husband Todd went to the Lord after suffering with Luekemia for over 5yrs.  I know this is a tough time for her but she has strong family support.
Have a good day and don't forget to tell your family how much you love them.
Ciao for now
