100 YEARS!

Hello I am back!
As I have posted my Grandma passed away last Friday. Bitter sweet is not the word to use but its refreshing to know she is happy and in a better place. She gave this world 100 years! Its amazing to me everything she has accomplished and been through. Her funeral was amazing. I am not a funeral person and actually dread them- Hers was actually really great. A few of her close friends spoke about her life and my sister Amy did an amazing job talking about everything Grandma has taught her. She went from covered wagons to flying in a plane. Losing her husband, daughter and grand daughter among many others in her life. She was really an incredible person! She always accepted me as a grand daughter. I never knew her as anything else. I miss Christmas with fresh baked bread, new slippers she just crochet, bottled everything and my favorite- relish- don't ask me why but I used to eat that out of the jar! She even gave me my own a few times as gifts :)
Pick up sticks in the basement along with the best dolls and home made doll clothes. I miss her and I miss her smiles and hugs. What a beautiful person she was!
Thanks to my sisters who were incredible with her. Giving her the opportunity to spend her last days at home. I really hope all the patience they have will rub off on me a bit. They were all so amazing- dedicating their lives to her for the last few years and even before. Its times like now I realize more and more how great life is. I have some amazing people to look up to in my life and I am so grateful for that.

Kendra what beautiful pictures from the funeral! I love the ones of the little kids by the casket. It shows that the world keeps spinning and spinning, there will always be life to celebrate at a funeral. It is beautiful.

Cross your fingers that West loses tomorrow night. (Gasp!) I know, I'm a terrible wife, but I'm ready to have my husband back, and he's ready to be done with football too, shockingly. Anyway, if they lose we can most likely hook up this Saturday or next. If they win, I'll keep you posted. Like I say, cross your fingers!

My last grandparent will be 100 years in June... My grandpa passed away this past winter... I know what you mean... It isn't bitter-sweet, it is more like sadly-sweet... prayers
