It Has Been One of Those Weeks!

Sometimes life just throws stuff at you that can be so overwhelming that you just become paralyzed by it! This weeks was one of those weeks! On Sunday night my 75 year old Mother had a heartattack! She was rushed into the emergency room and later was admitted. Thank God they were able to do a heart catherization to repair and unblock the damage. She came home in fighting form on Wednesday to my oldest sisters house and is making her way back slowly but surely. I am so proud of her and her strength. She just amazes me with her energizer bunny attitude! She is like Timex "takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'"! The scarriest part is over but I don't think any of us will be the same and or stop worrying. This paralyzed me and made my think what would I do without my Mom? Nothing was the resounding answer because this literally locked me down and made me not even want to deal without out her in my life! I love her so much and she has always been a huge part of my life! Her leaving would have left such a huge hole that I just don't know if I would have survived it without unimaginable damage! I am so happy to say that today is not the time to have to go through that and I pray that it won't be anytime soon. I know we all have to go someday but please let it be a long time away. I guess I needed to get that off my chest and than some! Now, I need to show you a layout that I did of my Mom and her sister when they were little back in 1933. She loves this layout and kept asking me when I was going to put it on my blog. So here it is Mom, just for you!! I love you Mom with all my heart!!

Tracy, I am so sorry to hear your mom suffered a heart attack, but so glad to hear she is recovering well from it! It is so scary to think of losing a parent, I pray that you don't face that for a long time!

Miss seeing you and Amy, we should crop soon. I talked with Carol about it tonight so all we need to do is set a date.

Tracy, I'm so sorry to hear about that. I had the same experience with my Dad. After an experience like that you just hang on to them so tight and you just don't want them out of your sight! I'm glad she is a strong woman.

On a happier note, I love the layout you did for her. You really have this touch with vintage pictures! WOW!
