Well I buried my grandmother today. We all wrote a little something for her that the minister read out loud to everyone so everyone could hear it before we put it in the casket with her....the casket that we upgraded. The one she picked out matched my grandfathers....she got the pink one instead....with flowers...the flowers were for us..not her...anyway here is what I had read...not just for her but for my family...

My Grandma didnít talk a lot, but I think I understand,
So much of what she had to say, she showed us with her hands.
Her hands were always busy,with so many people she had to care for.
When food filled the house up with aromas of delight,
Her hands would always beckon us to sit and have a bite.
Grandmaís hands were talented, with yarn or cloth or thread,
The things she didnít say a lot,she made for us instead.
Blankets and pajamas, were warmer Ďcause she made them,
When age began to take the talent of her hands away,
I think there were so many things she still had left to say.
And when we held her lovely hands in ours before she died,
We felt what she could not say, the love that was inside.
My Grandmaís words were not her strength, her thoughts she often hid,
She made, she gave, she touched our lives, with all the things she did.

So I made it thru that...and tomorrow is my first leg of my journey to Florida...I trip to Vegas to drop my daughter off to spend 2 weeks with her papa...also a little strength for me...since Ive seen my dad last (April of last year) Ive lost both my grandparents....I kinda miss my daddy...

Ill be back Sunday afternoon/evening. Then a day at work on monday (6-230), get my nails done, finish packing and then up allllllll night Monday to make sure I get to the airport ontime...Ill nap on the plane...so the plan is...we will see how that goes...

TTFN!

PA, just sit tight and breathe! Take this slow time to relax and unwind from the stresses of the past week and then get up and ready to G-O!!!

Sarah, so sorry to hear about your loss. Our trip with my brother and his family after our dad passed away last year was a Godsend. It was a wonderul time in which we were able to celebrate our dad, and enjoy our time together. You must be quite excited. I wish you a safe journey.

Oh, please don't cry. :hug2: :hug2: It wouldn't be special if you wanted to leave! Be sure you know where you are going to land little bird, before you take flight. :hug2: The east coast is wonderful, but not all places are as nice, eh? (But you know that). :yes:

Cannot wait to hear all about your adventures! Put your feet up higher than your heart. That should help the swelling. :hug1:
