No challenge this week

There will be no challenge this week.

This morning, my grandma passed away.  She had been very sick for a long time, and i was very lucky to be able to sit with her for four hours at the hospital.  Just her and i.

She was a very strong woman who raised six children and had numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Thanks for understanding.  See you all in March.

  44. My Condolence tot he loss of your Grandmother. You're lucky you still had a grandmother at your age with two little ones of your own, plus her having an Opportunity to meeting her grandbabies!

    I was only 13 when I loss my Grandmother (my Mom's Mother) and I was 35 or 36 when I lost my Grandmother from my Siblings' Father's side).

    I never met my Biological Grandmother from Natural Father's side.
