Hard decisions…

Julie’s visitation was last night (Friday night) and our nephew’s wedding rehearsal and dinner was at the same time.  Same situation with today’s funeral and wedding.  I was feeling a lot of emotional angst as to what I should do last night.  My friend, Deb Williams, gave me what I believe was the best advice…she told me to be with my family.  Family comes first. So that is what I did.  I believe it was the right decision although my Katy said that she was sure the family would understand because people die and no one expects it.


I love this picture…especially because it appears that we have a photobomber…That’s George…he is the oldest of the Brown brothers and he was sitting at the table with me.   In the background on the left is “him”, their brother Lee who is father of the groom.  Sean – the groom and his brother Ryan.  This is probably going to be the family event of the year…all of the cousins except one will be together in one place which is the first time since 1996 at their grandfather’s funeral. 

Today Sean and Lindsay say, I DO.  Lindsay is already family but now we will get to call her Lindsay Brown…yay.

He and I are relaxing this morning, I got up to get a cup of coffee away from our irritating Words of Wonder game on Facebook and the view of the backyard made me stop in my tracks.


For a split second, I thought to myself…WHAT ARE WE DOING leaving this view.  I suppose if I didn’t have these thoughts something would be wrong with me.

It’s going to be a great day…

Until next time….

  1. family is where you should be even if we did not get to see you


  2. Yup, everything Mary Beth said!


  3. Thanks, MB..so true..This place is a lot of work, on the gravel and far from the grocery store. We will be much better off down there in our oldster years 🙂 Plus there is Jaxon…he’s the best reason.


  4. I think Deb gave you good advice. Best wishes to the happy couple. Have fun at the wedding.

    It is an incredibly beautiful view but that little grand baby of yours would like having his grandma closer. My kids have a great relationship with grandma and grandpa and I think a lot of that is due to them being so close. Plus, I believe you have said the new place is pretty wonderful. It will all work out. 🙂
