So sad

Sunday, October 09, 2016

I know I've written a lot of sad blogs lately, but I think this will be the last one for a while. Today was my Aunt Virginia's funeral. Most of the family is still without power from Matthew, so there was a lot of apologies for looking bad. My cousin who gave the eulogy apologized for not blow drying his hair, everyone laughed... he's bald. It lightened the mood. We all remembered how much my aunt loved to laugh. The hardest part for me was I couldn't take my mom. She has dementia and wouldn't understand what was going on, and if she saw her oldest sister dead in a casket, I don't know that she would ever get over it. Sometimes she cries for no reason now. My mom has gotten steadily worst over the 4 years I've lived with her. She has lost so much of her mind. It was so sad that she couldn't spend time with her other 3 sisters today. But I thank God that He has allowed me to be with my Mom and not have to send her to a nursing home. That would just break my heart. Well, I think I'm done whining. Tomorrow is another day and hopefully one of blessings and smile. Good night all
