My Second Mom

Just wanted my close online friends to know that I lost my second mom night before last--my best friend's mom--I spent many, many weekends at their home during my growing up years.

 She will be missed so much.

 We really expected her to live for many more years--she had been in overall really good health.

 What is so ironic is this: This past summer my granddaughter's summer job did not work out and I called my best friend to see if they might need any more caregivers for Ms. Margaret. They did and my granddaughter got to spend a summer getting to know the woman who had touched and influenced my life so deeply through the years. Isn't that just like God??

Please pray for the Ballard family and for me that God will give me physical strength (knee) to make it through this difficult time.
