Tomorrow marks the 2nd Anniversary of the passing of my dear Mother-In-Law. I have been thinking about her a lot this week. It's funny how just the date on the calendar can bring losing a loved one to the forefront of our minds. She was diagnosed with cancer in September of 2004 and struggled with it for 9 months before the disease took her from us. On this day, I want to tell you a couple of great things about her.
She could decorate like nobody's business. She just had a knack for that sort of thing. It would amaze me how a lot of times when going to their house, she would have changed the furniture around. She liked changing things up and was always painting or moving her furniture. And I mean she did this a lot. Sometimes it seemed like barely a week would have passed and she'd have that living room completely redone. She also could decorate a Christmas tree. I never knew anyone that could put so much stuff on a tree and it still look so beautiful.The other thing is that she loved her grandson with all her heart. There are just no words to express how much little Taylor meant to her. And knowing this, I also know that she loved Natalie, even though she was just a thought at that time. She looked forward to John and I having kids and she was so sure that we would bring a girl into the family. (She had 3 boys and the one grandchild was a boy.) It makes me very sad that Natalie will not ever know her Nana Wright but I can take comfort in the fact that I know she would have loved her with all of her being. We love you so much Nana, and miss you terribly.
