Death is never easy and I always seems to come in three but this was something none of us was prepared for at all.

Looking back and moving forward

3 years ago our world was turned upside down and hit like a roller coaster. My beloved grandmother who was like a mom to me passed away on Dec. 31st 2009 she lived just long enough she see her last granddaughter born. She had been sick for a very long time we knew it was coming we just didnt know when but no matter how prepared you think you are your not when it hits. Then in Feburary death struck our family once again with first the passing of my husband's dad then two weeks later his mother. Need less to say that year was so horrible. While we was rejoicing the birth and new life our of now 2 year old death of our loved ones became overwhelming. Our faith in God and the support of our church got us through this ordeal and we eventually learned to pick ourselves up and move on we had to for them as well as for us. Our children needed us in time it does get a little easier the hardest thing we still face is when holidays come up our family has always been big on holidays but not anymore ever since all of this everyone in the families have all went their seperate ways doing their own thing and maybe thats for the best because no one ever really got along with anyone every get together there was constant fights breaking out. We are moving on with our lives spending the rest of the time we have here before leaving for hawaii the most of it. I know our loved ones are looking down on us and are very proud of what were doing and where were going. Death is not always easy especially if its someone your really close too. But death does happen it 's part of life and we have to learn to deal with it and at some point in time get on with living our loved ones that have went on before us dont want us spending our time that we have left mourning over them. Yes there is a time for that but then there is a time to move on.
