    meredith88 - your quesadilla sounds totally delicious! Have a peaceful Friday Eve. :-)

    I just got back from the store and realized on the way home that I forgot to get the shrimp for dinner tonight. LOL But I did get all the stuff for the salad so I guess we are having southwest chicken breasts on salad tonight. Glad I already had some cooked chicken here.

    It's Thursday! Aka, Friday Eve, and my night off :-) I have come to love having Thursday evenings to myself each week, including getting to cook anything I want for supper! Tonight I will be making a veggie quesadilla with spinach, peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and avocado all from Aldi. Cheese B2G3 from HT and tortillas are always on hand. Sides will be the leftover roasted asparagus from last night as well as the fresh cantaloupe and pineapple from Aldi that we've been eating on all week.

    Miacarre, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother, especially so young. I know how heartbreaking it is. Recently, in a period of just 13 months, I lost both parents and two furkids. When my parents passed, no one was in the room with them. I have to believe that is how they wanted it, because we were constantly by their bedside with only very brief, intermittent breaks. Perhaps your Mom didn't want you to remember seeing her go.

    I wish I had some wonderful words of comfort for you, but there are none to fix how you're feeling. Just be extra kind and gentle with yourself as you navigate this journey. Please accept my deepest condolences.

    Miacarre-my heart goes out to you. Sending lots of hugs!!!

    Thanks Faye, yes it's true it's hard to grasp especially I didn't make it on time to see her on her last breath, and she's only 56.

    miacarre - That's such a hard reality to grasp. My heart goes out to you. It's been almost 7 years since my mom passed away and I still think of her every day. But there is joy in remembering all the wonderful times we had together and in sharing those memories with my girls. Sending you big hugs.

    Thanks Faye! It would take time for me to accept that I wouldn't see my mom anymore.

    miacarre - sorry to hear that. I hope everything will be ok.
