Hey everyone... I've been away for a while when recently the oldest of my nieces and nephews and one of two nieces died after waiting for a heart transplant. She and her brother were very close and he is taking her death very hard as is Mom.
I have been busy outside with yard work just to make myself available to my sister.
I also attending my grandson's eighth grade graduation this past Saturday. You may think okay? Well, it's a lot when you have to care for your spouse and yourself to get ready for occasions like that.
I have popped in a few times but not long enough to respond to posts.
I will share an experience that my sister videoed after her daughter's death. One of her granddaughters had ventured out to the end of the driveway near the street. A blackbird landed beside her. The little one stood there in wonder of the blackbird and then sat down and was talking to it. The bird never flinched. Then it started walking up toward the house and the little one followed behind. Halfway up the driveway the bird paused as if waiting for the little one to catch up which she did and took the lead toward the house. The bird was still for a few seconds and then flew away. My sister in tears said to me 'Von that's Tasha.' I agreed.
And one for myself . I opened my door to check for mail and sitting in my chair was a blackbird just sitting there. Immediately my sister's video popped into my head. Me with my lighthearted self started talking to the bird as it was playing with one of my craft flowers that I had forgotten to pack away earlier. It just sat there what seemed like minutes but was probably just seconds before it flew away.
So I have been remembering my niece...
Delightful story, @Von Jones despite the sad event.
Hi Von. I'm so sorry about your niece. What a wonderful story about the blackbird.
So sorry for your family's loss, Von. I'm glad you checked in but it sounds like you have your hands full. I loved the story of the blackbird(s). Take care of yourself.
Been missing you @Von Jones and sorry about the family death. I was hoping you were doing a secret DIY. Wonderful story of the blackbird and wish your beautiful family healing and peace. I am always interested in your DIY's.
My condolences @Von Jones
@Von Jones so sorry for your loss. Glad to know your still with us here on the forum Von
Lois is coming back soon, everyone !
She messaged me that she lost her password, and she said that she contacted @Ken Anderson and he is sending her a temporary one so that she can get back in the forum.
Ken has been gone, but now that he is back to send her the password, Lois should be coming back again.
If you hear from her, tell her that I have assigned her a new password, and have given it to her via Facebook messenger, which is where she contacted me.
I will messenger her that news right away !
I lost contact with her when I deleted my Facebook but good to have her back here.
