Very Sad Today

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.

  5. This is such a beautiful picture, something you will always treasure. What a beautiful gift you have been given, to know and be loved by each of these people - your Grandma and your daughter. Just want you to know that I prayed for you today as you remember/honor your grandmother - that you would know in your heart that God is with you and He will never leave or forsake you. You are in Good Hands. Hugs,Kendra (Rachel's mom)
