I’m back!

Hey y'all!!

Goodness,

I don’t even know where to start.

I felt like I needed to step away for a moment.

I was in a funk and didn’t really have much to say.

But,

I’m all better now.

Thank God!

I guess I’ll start with the month of May.

It was a trying month.

MyDaddy had two surgeries.

Dialysis is slowly starting to wear him down.

He continues to have a positive attitude,

but realistically he NEEDS a kidney transplant.

He celebrated his 67th birthday on May 28th.

Unfortunately Shug & I weren’t able to celebrate with my parents.

Because on May 29th,

Shug’s Grandmother passed away.

We were by her side when she passed.

Shug’s family surrounded her bedside.

We prayed and sang her favorite gospel songs.

She had a peaceful smile on her face,

and one single tear in her right eye.

And she quietly slipped away.

It may sound crazy,

but it was the most beautiful experience that I have ever had.

She died the way she lived her life,

with grace and dignity.

Her funeral was another amazing experience.

Her family sent her home to Glory in style.

I thank God for the five years that I knew her.

My life is better is for it!

And Grandma’s death has brought us a blessing.

I’m not ready to share just yet.

But just keep me & Shug in your prayers,

chants,

and pleas to the universe.

After Grandma’s funeral,

the rest of June passed by uneventfully….

I think?!?!

And now it’s the middle of July.

I find myself cautiously full of hope.

So,

that ‘s it for now.

I just wanted to let y’all know………..

I’m back!!
