Reporting Back ..........

How I did I do?

It's 1.30 pm and I'm feeling exhausted. 

Mum died last night with family around her. It was quite a pleasant experience. We were able to talk and hug and weep together.

Our house guests have left and John is getting things ready for our next lot as family arrive from various places and need beds. Our son and his wife arrive late tonight from Christchurch.

We've had to arrange so much. Who would have thought organising a funeral would be this demanding. I thibk we've got it right .... but tomorrow will tell.

I'm exhausted but stayed wheat free except for the sausage, and coffee free today and it happened naturally.

I'm sticking to my plan of wheat and coffee free but my walk got mixed up with phone calls and I'm not sure whether I'll get another chance later today. I need to sleep but there are still phone calls to make although I'm not going to be too upset if some have to wait until tomorrow. There will be a meeting with our minister later to decide on the order of service and so forth. 

I'm glad to be in a family who support one another.


  1. So sorry to hear of your mother's death but I am glad she is not suffering. Good luck with the next few days with all you will have to cope with.

  2. Oh, MargieAnne, I missed this post! You have my sympathies and prayers. You're in for a whirlwind of activity. I'm glad you have family present and are not alone in this. Hugs.
