Grey Day

It was a grey day yesterday, almost like it wanted to snow.

I did odds and ends all day long until it was time for my Netflix fix so I watched Benji.  I give it 5 out of 5 stars…my kind of movie.

Chance and I walked outside after supper, it was cold enough that the ground is frozen and not muddy.  Of course it was a no snow melting day.

another view of June

Here is another view of June.

I have many cousins and they have children…on Friday one of those children died from Breast Cancer that spread….Tammy was 49 years old.  It seems to me that the older generation should die before the younger generation. The only comfort there is in this situation…she was a woman of great faith in our Lord and Savior and heaven is now her home.

  1. You are right - the older should go before the younger. But oh how we hate to see any of them go.

  6. I'm sorry to hear of your family's loss. I'm glad that you can find comfort in your faith.
    And about that snowbank, looks like I'll not be collecting the snow stick prize this week. Unfortunately for you, I guess.

  10. 49 is definitely too young but thankful you all - - - and me, too - - will see her one day!
    Your snow - - and weather - - oh my! My thought is if and when spring/summer gets here, you all will be celebrating every single day - - as long as the pollen doesn't bother FG's lungs.

  11. It's very sad to lose someone so young. My son was 40, also too young, but we don't have a say in when our loved ones are called back. I hope you take some time for yourself today.

  12. I'm sorry for your loss. It's a consolation that she's in heaven but still...
    It's a gray and wet day here. Hope you get some warm weather soon.

  14. I'm sorry to hear of your loss. That is much too young an age to go. I'm sure her faith did help her in her illness. I wish the best for your family in this loss.

    I guessed a June date for seeing the last of "June" but I was hoping for you that I would be wrong. Now I wonder if it may not be gone until June! Today we had our third Sunday in a row with snow - unheard of for this area. I've about decided we will go from winter directly into summer and I always hate it when we lose out on spring!

  17. We are having a grey week here... so depressing at this time of year. So sorry to hear about your cousin's daughter. I've lost two to that horrible disease and both were young.

  19. It is tough losing children. I have been losing former students who are way younger than me. One was a twin brother in a family of two sets of twins. My wife lost a nephew a couple of months ago who was the only grandchild to her dad, her only nephew. My wife’s not talking about it so I am not blogging it. Cancer seems to be continually picking of people even though more people are serving it.

  20. I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose a child no matter what their age...they are always your baby. I'm so sorry for the loss of your family member and I don't know how people can cope without faith in God. Blessings and healing to all of you.
