Missing a Matriarch

Naphtali’s Cuban grandmother passed away a week ago today. It was a shock to us all and paradoxical in how we have dealt with the knowledge she’s with Jesus but not with us. We heard that she was having a hard time with her recovery from cancer last Thursday and by Sunday we had lost her. Hubs and I were able to get off work and get down there by the end of Tuesday morning. And thankfully Hubs brother has been up here in Chicago with us looking for a job for the summer.

We hustled on down and were able to spend some time with my sweet suegra (mother-in-law) and family thru our rough time.

I’ll write more later as I’m still processing everything and catching up on my sleep but needless to say it’s hard to realize life has changed yet again.


Oh life.
