Where to Begin….

I have not posted in almost a month. It has been an emotional and trying time for this mama. I go back and forth as to whether or not I should share the struggle we have been going through. But as little time has passed I feel okay enough to share.

My grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer only 8 short weeks ago. Shortly after diagnosis, and a short stint in the hospital she was sent home with Hospice. Not the news we wanted to hear. As a family we came together to make her as comfortable as possible. She slipped into a coma and passed away. It is an odd feeling to be happy she went peacefully but devastated at the same time. It was THE hardest situation I have ever faced.

But onto happier memories, my grandmother will forever be the reason I adore cooking. I helped her make pie crusts for holidays or can homemade apple butter.She showed her love through food and making sure everyone was fed. There has always been a long standing joke that any new family member will quickly gain, at least,10 pounds.She also taught me to help anyone in need. I will be forever thankful to her for showing me that small acts of kindness can change the world. I cannot count how many times there was a neighbor kid or a friend of a friend who needed a place to stay and my grandma would gladly make a place for them.

She was the greatest women I had the privilege to know. I will miss her every single day.

Sending notes to heaven. Love you grandma!
