I'll be away for a while, not that I was so regular a blogger before.

We lost my Mom this morning. She battled long and hard against this beast, this cancer, but in the end she slipped away quietly in her sleep.

I was able to be with her yesterday and I know she knew I was there, but she wasn't able to speak. My brother and his wife and kids were there as was my sister and my oldest nephew. We all believe that Mom was holding on until we got there and once she saw us all she was able to rest.

I'll be in Saskatchewan this week. The funeral will be Thursday. Thank you all for praying for my Mom. She knew and she was grateful.


  1. So sorry to hear about your mom. Having gone through the same thing I know how hard it is.
    But remember the good times and know that she will always be with you.

  2. I'm sorry that my first post to you after lurking for so long is to offer my condolences. Your mom knew how much you loved her and you clearly treasured your time with her. (Anna Knapp)

  14. I just discovered your blog last night (couldn't stop reading your blog, and stayed up till 4am)through a Ravelry project of yours. I'm in awe by your creativity and feel inspired by your spirit.
    I'm really sorry to hear about your mom. I know you'll miss her.

    If people are like isotopes, then the strength of spirit and fire I think is in you must have ben doubly-so in her.
