About Me

I am a crazy woman, funny and carefree but type A and anal all at the same time. I have two daughters and a Father who's a King...what more do I need?! My goal on this planet is to help His bride: literally (I plan weddings for a living!) and spiritually (I occasionally offer words of wisdom to loved ones...) Bless us all on this journey!

Life Goes On

Well the funeral was yesterday and you know what? It was ok. The last week and a half of my grandma's life was so bad that we're just relieved THAT PART is over; the rest hasn't really hit me yet, and that's ok. We did just what she wanted with a short visitation, closed casket, same day service, short dinner. Sooooooooooo...now what? I'm trying to get this wedding business off the ground, excited about summer, I have a wedding to do in 2 weeks at church, time to spend with my mom and sister as we go through grandma's house (that'll be hard but good at the same time). This has just all been so long, and she's BETTER now. She's better now. We also have promised to stay in touch with Tom, her second husband she married after my grandpa died 7 years ago; he LOVES my kids and has been widowed twice now (can you even imagine?) so we will be visiting him at his house in Boone Grove often. Finally, I may have a date next week...but that'll have to wait for another post! Today is for my Grandma Bair, 74 years old, who doesn't have cancer in heaven. Thank God.

I love how you ended that post! Nope, she doesn't have cancer in heaven. :-) I know that your family will miss her and you will be in our prayers. It's bitter-sweet going through a loved ones belongings. One minute you'll be laughing because an item trigured a certain memory, and then you'll be crying 2 mins. later. Such an emotional roller coaster!

Did you get our flowers?

I think that the knowledge of our loved ones being happier and no longer in pain is what makes it a little easier to bear their absence. The sellfish and human part of me wants my mom here with me but I know she is able to do now all the things she couldnt while on this earth.
I am so sorry for your loss but I am so glad that you dont have to worry about her eternity. :)
