A Difficult Day

Today started off bad. I wasn’t expecting the phone call from my niece that my Mother-in-Law (and her precious Grandma) has taken a turn for the worse. I love my husband’s Mom, Ruth. She’s a sweet and simple farm wife from Iowa with soft-spoken ways, a gentle voice, and an enduring love for her family. Not to mention, when she felt better she used to make the best pumpkin bars on the planet (here’s THE RECIPE¬†she followed)!

You never know what life holds … sometimes it’s unspeakable beauty and other times it’s immense heartache. Knowing and loving Ruth has brought the first into our lives and I’m dreading the pain we’ll feel at her loss. Thank you, Mom, for being YOU and for making a huge difference in my life. Love you always!! xoxo
