…has been a whirlwind. I am suddenly thankful for every precious moment. I have not been able to write anything recently because of the flood of emotion and the crazy schedule of trying to maintain normal. As I sit here it is well after midnight and tomorrow comes too early for my comfort level. My cousin called recently and chuckled rather sadistically as she asked if she woke me up at 9am. She then proceeded to state that she wasn’t sure if I trained my entire family to sleep in until 2pm or if that was something that I got to indulged in alone. Ha, HA – gone are the college and newlywed era and, with them, the days of 2pm wake-ups!
I did want to share a few photos I captured of the passing of my beloved Grandpap. Now, the disclaimer is that my eyes were swollen shut from crying…literally and 99.9% of the time my vision was a blur. I could barely see plus, it is not really proper to whip out a big ‘ol camera at a funeral so I had to be lightening quick. However, I wasn’t really concerned with offending people at this moment in my life. I was mourning and wanted to capture some memories for my family later on…when the pain isn’t as raw.
Life: Past and present. Grandma comforting the boys…
Being carried by and…..
…holding a little more tightly on to those we love.
