I'm praying that life will slow down now and I can get back to being me.  In the midst of all the craziness of life, I decided to resign from my job.  It was a very hard decision to make because I truly enjoyed working part time and loved the people.  But,  I wanted to be fair to the company.  They had been so generous with allowing me the time away from the office to help with caring for my family.  I didn't know how long it would take and I didn't want to take advantage of their kindness, so I resigned.

I've been absent from blogging lately, but wanted to share some news and dedicate a post to my grandmother, which we call Munner.

My sweet Munner passed away this morning after battling cancer since early this summer.  Well, I believe she won.  She is now home with the Lord and getting to catch up with all the loved ones that have gone before us, especially my Granddaddy.

Munner was a strong, dedicated, smart, and spiritual woman.  She loved her family and she loved the Lord.  She was the epitome of a southern belle!  She could fry chicken like no other and man, did she make some amazing mac n' cheese!!  She tried to teach me her tricks, but sadly, I was never able to master it like she did.

I'm beyond fortunate for the time I had with her these past 20 years.  I miss her terribly.   Love you, Munner!!!
