I promised a giveaway and I like to keep those filled with good feelings, but this week was bittersweet for me. Another wonderful lady in my life was taken away far too soon. My aunt Ginny was very kind to me and she will be greatly missed. Cancer - what a terrible word. There isn't anyone I know who hasn't been touched by it. I lost my mother to cancer as well a few years ago.
My mother told me that when I was a baby she had a difficult time with me (she was a young mom) and that my aunt really saved her from going crazy. My aunt had lots of kiddos of her own, so she was a pro. She gave my mom the break she needed and showed her a few tips on how to calm me. Being a mom myself (and struggling from time to time), I can appreciate just how good that must have felt to have someone who could help.
|Now I don't have many photos of me and my aunt (and although her face is covered), I do believe this is us taking a rest.|
Now, please don't feel sad for me -she didn't want me to be sad for her. Instead, go ahead and enter the giveaway. The more you enter, share, comment, even print a coupon or 2, the more I'll be donating to Roswell! Please stop by their website and consider making a donation - you'll receive some extra entries for your generosity too (honor system here people).
