Why am I telling you this? I don't know. This week has just been a week of reflection, and part of that was reflecting on the fact that I am a healthy person and I am grateful about that.
Another thing I have always been fortunate to have is a huge family. When I was born, I had 2 Great-Great Grandmothers, 3 Great Grandmas, 2 Great Grandpas, and 2 sets of grandparents. Not too many people have that, and I am coming to realize it more and more as my life goes on. My Great-Greats are gone, and my remaining Great Grandma just passed away on Thursday. I still feel fortunate that I had so many important people in my life for so long, and I am so blessed that I still have both sets of grandparents there to love, but it doesn't make the loss any easier.

So, in this week of new life and of losing a beloved great grandmother, I took a much needed break from this blogging world. I will be back this week with some projects that I have in mind though, so make sure to check back in the next couple of days.
