Goodbye, Mom Nadine

Three weeks ago, we went to visit my husband's mother, Nadine, in Oregon. We had planned on going in June, but for some reason, we decided to go in March.

Two weeks ago, we got the terrible news that she had passed away. We were in shock. We had just seen her!

This week, we had to fly out to Oregon again for her funeral. My poor husband. It was so hard on us all, but mostly him. Thank God we decided to go visit in March! Thank you, Lord!

She was an amazing woman who lived through the depression, World War II, raised 5 children and loved the Lord.  She was a gardener, crafter, sewer, and a righteous, loving woman.

Thank you to the ladies who've noticed that I haven't been on my blog lately. What a blessing to have such sweet friends.

Hi Patricia,
I am so sorry about your mother in law Nadine. I know heaven has to be so beautiful we can't even imagine it and what Jesus has in store for us must be over the top awesome... and I can't even begin to imagine how sad it makes you feel to not be able to hug her but I do know how it feels to lose your only daughter to cancer...and to trust God with your grief.You know they are not suffering any more but my daughter has been gone about a year and a half and there are times the grief is unbearable.
I too, love vintage linens...they just whistle to me and I swoon the minute I see them...all that work. I do not have any with birds however.
I will keep you, your husband and children in my prayers.
Have a peaceful and relaxed Sunday
Simply Debbie

Patricia, I just stopped by from Timeless Things and am so sorry to read of your family's loss. I am holding each of you close in prayer tonight as you do the hard work of grieving

I, too, am a vintage linen lover (and seller) and would love to correspond with you some day when you feel up to it. Unfortunately, I don't see a way to email you, so I hope you'll stop by my blog and drop me a note sometime.

Not a day goes by that I do not yearn for my Mother... I know how much your heart must hurt..

Patricia so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful blessing that you and your husband had in visiting and having some special time with her before she passed. May that memory give you some comfort.

I haven't been on my blog in months (my mother issues) so just now catching up with my "blog friends". Take care!

Warm hugs,
