I loved visiting this beautiful National Park in #iceland🇮🇸 . It is famous, because even the Game of Thrones were filmed here. It's a natural beauty, especially in the Fall, when the leaves are changing colours.
Hi All,⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Truthfully I wanted to stay away from social media but writing this post is somewhat theraputic. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Sunday morning I got the call from my mom, who got the call from her sister in Poland, that her mother, my grandmother had passed away. Two hours later, I was home with my parents in the suburbs, on a Facetime call with our family in Poland saying our last goodbyes, saying the rosary and having reality sink in. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She had been sick for awhile and we all saw her in October, saying goodbye with the thought in our minds that is the forever goodbye. But we were all going back to Poland in May for my cousin's wedding...so it was more a goodbye but also see you in May. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ My last words to her were, "I love you so much and please hold on until May...I am bringing someone special that I want you to meet.”⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I sit here at home, writing this post, crying tears again at the thought that my strong, amazing human I called my Babcia will never see me get married, will never meet my children, and will never see me come buslting through her door in Poland after a long 12 hours of travel to give her the biggest hug possible. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She was a such a strong,woman. She was fearless. ⠀⠀ God dealt her a lot in life, but she percervied. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She raised three strong children and helped raise 6 grandchildren. ⠀⠀ She lived through World War II, through the communist regime, and the millenium. ⠀⠀ She came to America 6 times...one of which was meeting me at only a few weeks old.⠀⠀ She played the harmonica and could hold a tune. ⠀⠀ She was so proud of all of us, children, grandchildren and spouses.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She was a fighter. ⠀⠀ She fought til the end. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She is no longer suffering and that brings us comfort. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ My eyes are raw from the tears. My heart is raw from the pain. ⠀⠀ I am traveling to Poland this week for the funeral and plan to stay through the
