Today I started the day grieving so many babies, children, and an adult CHDers that lost their battles. I was and am so heartbroken for these families. Then, I get a call from my mom. My grandma has not been doing well for the last week and we kind of knew that her time on earth was not long. Sadly, in the midst of all the grief for the heart families, my grandma passed away this morning. I am sad beyond belief. She is 95 years old and has led a great life. She taught me the love of travel. When I was young I used to look through all the magazines she kept on places she had been or planned to go. Exotic, foreign, and amazing places. I remember looking at pictures of all the places she visited. She would always bring us something special from everywhere she went. I have postcards, dolls, and treasures from all over the world. I knew when I grew up that I wanted to travel. And I did...and I will forever. My grandma taught me to live life to the fullest. She surely did! She loved so much and so many people. I miss my grandma. Even though she lived a long and full life...it is still hard.

Can I count the times I've watched you smile and wondered what will be? Can I think of each and every trial we've endured patiently? So very many sleepless nights, the monitors watched with care, blood pressure low, heart rate too high, knees bent down in prayer. I know Lord you are near to me, this journey's in your hands, But sometimes Lord it is so hard to meet this life's demands. I trust you God, I really do but fear creeps deep inside, sometimes I just don't understand, no matter how I try. But Jesus you are with me, and hand in hand we'll cope, for I know that you will lead us, through this heart journey of hope.
