Moving On

May 2nd will always be a "cursed" day in my family. It is the day that my dad had a heart attack, the day my mom had surgery to remove her cancer, the day that my grandpa died. And now it is also the day that we say goodbye to an amazing woman, John's grandmother.

Grandmother Mary lived a great life for 95 years. Although those of us left behind are sad and will miss her, we rejoice because we know she is dancing with Jesus on those streets of gold and has been reunited with her husband.

John and I are so glad that the Austin and Addie were able to meet their great-grandmother and celebrate their first birthday with her. I realize Austin is screaming in the picture above but I love it. :)

Grandmother will be remembered for her love of family, leading everyone in songs with jingle bells at Christmas, her love of ice cream and her spunkiness. I can only pray that I'm as fabulous if I make it to 95!

Grandmother, you will definitely be missed but we know that because of God's sacrifice, we will see you again!
