Today was my Mom's memorial service. It was a wonderful service that she had planed years ago. She had clippings and scriptures and song picked out as well as the location and the officiant. We had to make two changes in the soloist that she had wanted was to ill to preform and one of my friends sang the Lord's Prayer. I also added my husband of a little over a year singing Amazing Grace. Mom would have loved it. A few people spoke at the service their memories of Mom which helped my remember what an awesome woman she was. You see in the last month or so we were so focused on keeping her comfortable that I had lost sight of that. It was wonderful that her friends helped me to remember. Thanks Mom - you made me the person I am today. I love you and miss you...

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 30 in 2011). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates men and women who died while in military service to the United States.
My Thanks to those familes that lost someone who served our country.
My great aunt was one of those. My dad worked on the Manhattan project.

My Mom passed away today - the nurse called it at 4:34. The three of us (I have a brother and a sister)were in the room with her from about 11 on. I had gone over with the boy around 9 when he said goodbye as he had to get back to work today. She had lived a wonderful 89 year life. Many happy memories. So glad for the Hospice organization in town.

Well the boy came home Wednesday night. The reason is my Mom has been very ill. She has been calling out for Ethan for a week. I'll spare the details other than to say she is now in Hospice care. Ethan has been a trooper as he hates hospitals, but loves his grandma!

I have a self imposed no fabric buying rule since the boxes are stacking up to ship overseas. I however got this wonderful e-mail from the FatQuarterShop advertising *How the Grinch Stole Christmas* my husbands FAVORITE!!! Well I showed him and to quote "Finally some decent fabric" I bought the panel and I'm on the list to know when the fat quarters come in. WIN WIN
