The last couple of weeks have been quite trying. One of the best weeks of my life was quickly followed by one of the worst and most difficult when my Grandma was taken to the ER and admitted to the hospital to spend the last week of her life. I thought of sharing some of my feelings about the last couple of weeks but decided to leave that for personal journaling. What I will say is that everyone’s prayers and love were felt each and every day. I am so blessed to have family and friends that hold me when I cry, patiently wait when it’s too hard to talk, and make me laugh when I think it’s nearly impossible to be happy. Every day gets easier and I thank God that I can still talk to my Grandma in my prayers and feel her spirit with me in so many of the things I do in my life. I have so many wonderful memories, and that is what I hope to share in the future.
Yesterday, when I started feeling kind of ‘blah’ I began to filter through some photos, got out every piece of brightly colored paper I could find, and started to cut and paste things together. A fun day of scrapping while watching “Julie and Julia,” catching up on some sleep, and reading through some blog posts. Sometimes you don’t realize how badly you need some “me” time until you actually set the day aside for yourself. I don’t feel guilty one bit :)
