bad week
 
first on monday with the news of a fellow bf member passing away then on tues morning i got a phone call from my parents about my grandma dying, is sad because a death is always sad, but also a celabration of a wounderful long life, she was 97 and up to a couple of months ago she was not in too bad a shape went downhill fast
she died of old age, body worn out, we knew it was close on the plus side no more suffering but a death is still sad


i will do everyone i can and the easy ones twice,
was one of her favorite lines(sounded strange from an older lady)
just ramlbling trying not to think about it too much

I like that saying. Especially from an older lady. :D

Sorry for your loss, NH. ((hugs)) My own grandmother just turned 96 earlier this month, and is still going. Says that every night she prays she won't wake up, and every morning she says, "Damn."

You are right. Even when it appears that a long or hard life comes to an end, and that suffering is gone, in the end, it's still a death. Foo is here for you, baybuh. So is VV. :)

What VV said, NH. These things are never easy, but it sounds like your grandma had a good life (and I love that line :)- she must have been a character!).

you dont always expect them to say that, we will probably be like that at that age too some day,

thanks vv

Hey Chiliboy, I'm sorry about your grandma.

Remember that you are very much a part of her and what she has taught you. Use everything you have gained from her as a postive growth. No matter how old you are, you are always growing and learning. You are a product of your environment, of your upbringing. And she contributed to that. Pass that on to those of the future. She gave you the best of herself, now you can do the same for others. :)

((hugs)) to you, Chiliboy.

I seem to forget how small my nasty bad things in life are when it comes to people having more issues than me. Sorry. :(

I can't speak for NH, but I know that everyone has their own negative things to deal with in life. And your nasty bad things are no less important or real to you than any of mine are to me. At least where it concerns me, don't ever feel your nasty bad things are trivial by comparison. :) ((huggies))

Sorry norsehabanero. :( Hugs from me to you. Its pay it forward time for me. I had a bad couple of weeks myself but I was confident that life would change for the better and its already working to that degree :)

I have a grandma that is very ill as well. I love her dearly although she can be a pain in the butt sometimes :)

Death is definitely sad but now you have another angel on your side fighting for you :)

Take peace that she is happy and sending her love your way!!!!

Snowy :)
