Dealing with loss

Seen through the picture window of my brother's farmhouse early yesterday morning.
                            The cattle were already finding their breakfast of soft grasses --- you can see them in the distance there.      
Later as the day heated up, they found shade under the trees.  My sister-in-law gave me a great tour of the place, riding in their Kubota.  It was a beautiful morning!

        I have been visiting family and working out the legal details and practical decisions involved in the  passing of  our mother.  Quite a few hoops to jump through now!  It is so good to have a wonderful, if eccentric, family to share this with!


Here is my mother in a photo with my daughter's children. It was taken Mothers Day of 2012.
I am so glad that we made the trip!

                       It is a memory we will always cherish!

         The photo really shows how a year makes a difference! The children have grown and flourished and Mom has passed to an even better place!

  Here are the "babies" today! ( well this month, anyway!)

        Sophie and Nina are in for a big adventure, going to Clayton, NM for a Thaxton family reunion....maybe they will need some little pink cowgirl boots????
  Can't wait to see them!  [and all my family!]

Oh Lila, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your mother was the sweetest lady. I remember meeting her when we were young and she was indeed a beautiful the truest sense of that word. I know you will miss her. What a blessing to have her with you these past few years. My heart goes out to you my friend. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Your friend, Diane

What a lovely photo of your mom with her great-grandchildren! Such a legacy of love!
We just got back from Alabama to see my mom--youngest daughter hadn't seen her in 3 1/2 years! Both my daughters went and we took photos-I don't think she knew who I was at all this visit, though she seemed to when I saw her in March. She was delighted to see the granddaughters, but wasn't sure who they were, didn't know their names. She knew they were connected to her and she was happy to have company.
It is such a blessing to have the support of family during loss and difficult times. Those sweet little girls would look adorable in western boots for their trip-- pink or red of course!

Thank-you all for your sweet comments and concern!
Vicki, I'm glad you were able to see your Mom, with her grandchildren too! I'm sorry it is uncertain that she knows you now!
I'm thinking western boots are not cheap!!! We'll see!?
