People keep asking me how we are dealing with my MIL's passing. How is your husband doing? He's fine. We haven't been devastated or tearful, just relieved. Last night we were at dinner with friends commenting on it and we realized that we had the opportunity to say goodbye to her and make amends for several months. We read to her, sang to her, shared memories, took care of her, talked about heaven, brought the kids in to see her, took her out, etc. My friends parents died suddenly within a week of each other and she didn't get that opportunity. WE are very grateful.
My husband spent time this week planning our trip to New Hampshire to inter her Cremains. She will share space with her husband and older son. My husband is so excited. We will spend a week there, visiting her old haunts, family, doing some geneology, etc. We are looking forward to it. Just he and I. Won't that be nice?
