For me and my family it has not been a Happy New Year.
Late last night, just a few hours into the new year, my brother called to tell me that my dear mother passed away after a lengthy illness. All of my siblings were with her, around her bed at the hospital. I was the only one that could not be there at the time.
Dear Mom, bless her soul. She was 76 years old and I already miss her very much.
Just hopping aboard a plane in minutes to be with my family.
So I just thought I would drop by here at The Puddle and let my friends know that I probably will not be around for the next little while.
Wishing you all a happy Happy New Year 2009!
