I talked to my mom this morning and hate to hear her voice so sad. Last night their screened in patio caved in from the weight of the snow and rain. No one was hurt, but everything is destroyed.
Not only have we grown up in this room-
But those we have loved and lost were here as well.
t makes me want to cry to think about losing it, so I can't imagine how mom and dad feel.
In life there are few places that can bring you such joy- the patio at mom's house brings that for all of us.
We have celebrated on this patio and cried on this patio.
This is where our friends grew up.
So when mom wonders why she is so upset over "stuff" I tried to remind her that it is so much more than "stuff" - it is their life.
Sending so many hugs and prayers for a fast fix and rebuild so they can get back their favorite spot.
