Hi, it's me.

Well, where do I begin?

We had a fabulous time in New York for my reunion followed by a few days in Connecticut visiting Hubs' birth mother and family, which was also a wonderful time.

Shortly before leaving on our trip to NYC, my Dad told me that hospice would be starting to come to his house the next day. At the end of our trip to the Northeast, Hubs flew back to California, and I flew directly to Texas to spend some time with my Dad. Jilly and I had a very meaningful visit with him, which we will treasure in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

I'll write about all of these things soon, but wanted to let you know what's been up and where I've been. I'm flying back to CA on Monday, in time to be with Hubs for his birthday on Tuesday.

Lots of love,
Starshine

You are in my thoughts and my heart during this time. Knowing that your father doesn't have much time left must be heartbreaking. I am glad that you had this time together, and it's a blessing that he was able to see his first grandchild, too.

Happy Birthday to Hubs. Hugs to you and your family.

I am glad to know you have your wonderful Husband there with you to help comfort you in this time. To know that he has had a similar experience will be helpful and will pull the two of you even closer together (if that were possible!).

Hugs!
