Grandpa and I dancing at my wedding.
Before you ask I got divorced and am now engaged to a wonderful man (Tobei), however this is my favorite picture of my grandpa and I.
Today was grandpa’s visitation and service. What a beautiful day for it. The sun was out, it was warm and it felt like grandpa was with us. I was dealing with other major things going on in my life at the same time though and was waiting on a phone call throughout the visitation. I did not find it very fair that I could not mourn properly as this phone call was very important. The call came half an hour before the service thankfully so that situation was put out of my mind for the time being.
The service started with my step-mom reading the eulogy. It was very touching and spoke of grandpa so well. I was supposed to follow the eulogy with reading a poem but could not do it. Tobei read it for me instead and he did so well. I love that man. One of my best-friends came to town to be with me for the funeral. It meant a lot to me to have her here by my side. She also knew grandpa and kept us going with memories she has of him. There was a reception afterwards but I didn’t stay very long. Life has been a roller coaster the past few months and I just wanted to go home. Well that and the fact that I DO NOT wear high heels and I was today. Whoever invented those needs to be slapped and then some.
Little Man comes home on Saturday. I can’t wait for him to be back. My mom says he was a little monster today. He is ready to come home as well I think even though he was too busy playing to bother talking to me today on the phone. Got to love 2.5 year olds.
Again I want to say thank you for reading and leaving me your prayers and well wishes through all of this. Blogs aren’t supposed to be downers but this blog is about my life which has been a downer lately. I appreciate you sticking with me.
