I have had a hard time this last week. Mr Big's nana is the sweetest lady who has had a hard time with her health lately. She has struggled on in so much pain and we are hoping that things will soon improve, but unfortunately she has had to make the move into a nursing home, as staying in her own home is just not an option any longer. She hasn't in fact been home for a long time as she has been in hospital.
Anyway the time came to go through all her things with Mr Big's sister and mother and I found it heartbreaking. Not only was there the sadness of going through all those boxed up memories without nana there, but I felt in some ways like we were intruding as she is still with us and it just felt so sad.
The one good thing is that lots of her lovely treasures have found a loving home. There were so many things it was hard to decide what I simply could not give a home too, but there are now boxes piled up all over the house waiting to be set in cupboards and used with love once again. Of course I will be taking lots of pictures and sharing some of nana's lovely treasures here, but first I need a little time to appreciate them on my own.
