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!

Legacies


<
I've had two grandmas, both my paternal and my maternal grandmothers, diagnosed with cancer. We buried one last month, and tonight we celebrated the other at the Relay for Life Survivor's Lap. My sweet grandma Bennett is 81 and had to do the last half of her lap in the golf cart, but she smiled and waved her little pom-pom the whole time. She's the epitome of "mindful" living (see previous post). She just finished her last chemo treatment last Tuesday and is so spunky and sweet. One example: last September she and my grandpa came here for a b-day party and both were walking up my sidewalk with canes. I went out to help them in, kissed them and asked how they were doing. My grandma replied "Oh, just call us Cane and Able." I about pooped. And tonight we celebrated her wonderful attitude! When I"m 81 I wanna smile and wave pom-poms, even if it is on a golf cart. Hell I wanna be that way NOW!!! As for my grandma Bair, (pictured here) well she's in heaven now and hopefully they have golf carts and pom-poms there too... :)

What a sweet post! YEah, I wish I could smile some days and wave my pom-poms and I don't even have anything "serious" to be angry or stressed about! My grandma is the same way. She is so wonderfult o be around. She can barely walk due to a stroke, and cannot even get in and out of the bath tub, but she's damn happy. Always smiling. I hope I get there one day...soon!

That was really sweet! I am with you and Elizabeth. I would love to be able to smile and wave pom poms all the time. I think my goal this week is to focus on being more Christ-centered and a little less self-centered.

Sorry I haven't been around much. I'll type up the reason later because I have an incredible testimony. Later, and love ya!
