I am learning all kinds of new things, and continuing to appreciate all that my husband Steve did for our family. Financial management is a big one. I am still trying to get organized and I suppose I will finally have to create a budget. Yuk!! I have also learned how to use the snow blower, although my son Brad usually does that. But he will be moving to a new home next week. So I will have to talk my grandson into it… My next big learning project will be to take the cars to get the oil changed and whatever maintenance they need. That’s all Greek to me.
During Steve’s last weeks of life he often talked about the importance of families, and how they should come first always. I have been enjoying the company of my family so much lately. Just sitting and talking is so grounding and just feels good. I am blessed with a wonderful family. I love them all so much. My children, grandchildren, and extended family too. There’s just something about family that allows me to feel safe and loved.
