What a month December turned out to be, a time of highs and lows. Where do I start....I guess at the beginning. I completed Ronny's I Spy quilt and then finshed up another baby quilt, just barely. My Bernina started having issues that I couldn't resolve and so I had to relearn my Pfaff to finish it up, but it all worked out in the end. Then I moved on and made eight pillowcases for gifts and stocking stuffers. I had plans to make more gifts, but life happened...maybe next year.
On the morning we were leaving for Christmas with the boys and Nolen's graduation I got the call that Momma was in bad shape and was on her way to the emergency room. Talk about a HARD decision to make, do you go to your children or to your mother? I guess it was a compromise, we drove to Nashville and met little Ronny and stayed overnight, then drove to Atlanta the next day for a very hurried visit with the boys and attended Nolen's graduation at Georgia Tech were he received his Master's Degree, then headed back home to check on Momma.
It was touch and go for more than a week somehow though lots of family visits, prayers, and tears Momma pulled though. I don't know how long she will be with us, but I was able to hug and be with her this Christmas, which was a blessing!
This was the strangest holiday ever, no decorations, no kids home, no chaos of wrapping paper and cooking, just waiting for the beginning of a new year. Looking back though what a great ending...Robert found Alicia and has had many wonderful adventures and is happier than I can remember! Nolen and Brittany moved to Florida, received his Master's and is on his way of full filling his dream of becoming Dr. No! Stay tuned for more of the year in review!
