Spain in Winter
Day 1: An hour after I finished packing, we pulled the plug on this trip. My mother-in-law had begun the final few days of her life. We wanted to be there, and we’re so happy that we were. On Saturday, The Hubs rebooked our trip. I repacked my bag, and the next thing I knew, I was sitting on a plane bound for Madrid. From Madrid, we rented a car and drove 4+ hours south to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Andalusia, Spain. It was a long day, more like 48 hours. We met up with friends, who came here from several different countries. We smiled and laughed and enjoyed the Spanish hospitality that we so love. The Hubs’s mom passed at 11:30 AM yesterday, which was 5:30 PM here. We took time to process it. She had an amazing life, a life like no other, and we are celebrating that life, in a way she would have loved.
