Sewing Break

New postby MartySews2 on Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:04 am

My aunt, whom I loved dearly, and who opened her home to me during some turbulent times in my life as a young teen, died last night around 5pm. She was only 11yrs older than I am and our birthdays were 2 days apart. I lived with her for 4 yrs. She is the one who encouraged me on my sewing journey and was one of the sweetest, kindest and gentle ladies that I have ever loved. My heart is broken into pieces right now so I am taking a sewing break to grieve. This is the 2nd aunt that has died within the last 3 months due to complications of heart disease and diabetes. Part of me is angry that they didn't take better care of their health and the other part of me is so very sad that they died so young. To me, ages 71 and 76 are not very old. My hubby is only 70. I am reminded just how fragile life is. I do believe in God and His promise of everlasting life so I just need a little time to process all of this.

Sorry to hear that, Marty. I sure know what that is like. Here's hoping you can get back to sewing soon.
