One Year Ago......

I was lucky and never had anyone in my family die when I was a child.  I was able to grow up and have so many good times with my parents and grandparents. 

Papa passed away about 25 years ago and Nana just 7 months ago.  So many wonderful memories and they both are constantly in my thoughts.  I wish I would have had more time with them when they were alive, but I treasure the times we had and am so thankful that Nana and Papa were in my life.

My Granny was such a wonderful lady and I think of her often.  I feel sad about her passing, but part of me feels like her passing was a blessing because her memory was gone and there was a sadness about her being in the state she was in.  I wish I would have been old enough to have had her teach me some of her quilting skills, but I do have some of her quilts and wonderful memories of her.

When my grandparents passed on I thought my heart would never heal.  There hasn't been a day in the past 10 years that I haven't thought about them.  So many things that I do or see during the day remind me of Grandpa and Grandma.

Then my Daddy died 1 year ago today and my heart was not only broken, but left with a huge hole.  I miss him so much.  I think about him all the time.  Sometimes I see him in my dreams and he is with Grandpa and Grandma and I get so sad if someone wakes me up.  My dreams of him are so real.  I feel like he is still with me and I would give anything to be sitting around Grandpa and Grandma's kitchen table talking with them all.  Daddy was just to young to be gone (71).  It all happened to fast and I wasn't ready.  I love my Daddy so much and I hope he knows how much he was loved by all of his family.

Thanks for all of the wonderful memories Daddy, Grandpa, Grandma, Nana and Papa.  I love you all,  pray for your souls and that you are resting in peace.

I remember when this happened. My heart goes out to you. My Mom just went through surgery and it is cancer. Please keep her in your prayers. And I am ashamed to say that your gift is still not in the mail but it will be...I promise. It just seems like it is one thing and then another. Praying for you.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
