Today is the day


Over one year has passed since I have hugged my grandchildren.  Tonight they arrive back in the US.  My hope and prayers to soothe my aching arms and calm their confused thoughts is happening.

When their Dad passed away in 2010, losing his battle with PTSD, I moved from the role of “Grandma” to co-parenting with my daughter.  A one year old granddaughter, a 2 year old grandson and the youngest was born three months after the tragic day.

The whole story is very complicated and sad.  One day I will write it, when my emotions can convey to words that will help others. Anger still has a hold of me, but I’m working on that.

The reflection of sunshine on this flower is warming my soul and today I will think happy.  The healing in our family has to begin.  Soon to find out if there really is “uncondtional love” between a mother and daughter.

I have also had the opportunity to live in all four corners of the US . I have been a buyer, seller, tenant, and landlord in my personal life, which allows me to share first hand information my experience with real estate. I am now a settled empty nester, that is working less hours which allows me the time to write this blog and travel
