My mother, or Nemo to Brynne, suffered a brain aneurysm on December 11th. She was in ICU for 11 days and went to be with Jesus on December 22nd. She lived 61 great years...a woman of gentleness and compassion. Our hearts are broken in so many ways, yet we have found comfort and grace throughout it all. Christ is with us and comforting us as we mourn, and giving us the strength to take a step forward. She has left a legacy and will never be forgotten.
It has been a rough month, but before getting into that, we have to mention Brynne's birthday! December 15th Brynne turned 2! My sister-in-law did a great job putting a quick family birthday party together the one night we were in town. Brynne was greeted at the door with a princess outfit and fabulous Tinkerbell decorations. Mimi made a Tinkerbell cake and Brynne was in presents up to her ears!! We were all so blessed.
