Bye Nana

February 20, 2008

My Grandmother passed away last week.

It wasn’t unexpected, she had been unwell for a long time and had deteriorated rapidly over the last month.  But it is still very hard.  She was a lovely, gentle but very hard working woman who endured a lot. 

We flew to the South Island for her funeral last weekend. Although it was very sad it was nice to catch up with family, some of whom I hadn’t seen for over 10 years.  There was lots of catching up, reminising, and eating!  My daughter was often the centre of attention and helped bring smiles to many faces.  Life goes on.

It kind of puts the grumps from my last post into perspective, especially as the issues I was stressing about are almost all resolved.
