I am a 40 something year old wife to one, mother of two. One girl and one boy. By the way, did I mention that the kids have both left for college....need I say more!?!? I work full time, outside of the home and try my hardest everyday to adjust from having a full house to an empty nest!!
Today would of been my Mother In Law's 68th Birthday. She passed away last January, very suddenly. This was the first birthday since her death. So needless to say, it was a hard day for all of us.
We spent the day with my Father In Law...we went to the cemetery, went to one of his favorite stores and even took him to lunch. I hope it helped make the day a little easier for him.
I know that this is just the beginning. The next few months are going to been even harder. Especially, with Thanksgiving and Christmas being the first without her. Then the anniversary of her death...but she will forever be in our hearts!!!!
