Poems From Heaven

No one loved their family as much as you did, I know that because I felt it all my life.
The cool touch of your hands and the warmth of your heart was my greatest comfort. Your voice was not strong, but mighty were the words you penned.
You kept us all laughing with your witty humor, And your sweet tooth was like none other.
I was blessed to belong to you; Blessed to be your grand-daughter.
You decided it was time to go see PawPaw and I know he's been waiting for you...and though I miss you so very much I will always have you in my heart.
So write poems for me in Heaven Grannie For one day I'll join you there.

I love you Grannie 1914 - 2014

Our Three Day Weekend

I've been out of town most weekends visiting my Grannie, but this weekend we stayed home and it was a non-stop three day weekend. I think that was especially good b/c I got a lot of awesome kiddo time in, but also I didn't have time to sit and think about how things were going in East Texas with my Grannie.

Friday (which was my Friday off) we were up early - I had a hair appointment and we decided to get Emma a new shorter cut, too! I was cringing see all that hair on the ground, but she loves it! And now that's it's done I have to admit I really do think it's pretty cute!!
After we (the girls) got our hair cuts we headed to Bouncing Bears and Emma & Aaron played and did tandem flips and ran and jumped and jumped and jumped!

I would like to say they wore themselves out, but honestly they were still ready to go! We grabbed a late lunch with Geddo (my daddy) and they continued to play at Chick-fil-A for another hour or so...I would love to have that kind of ene…

July 4th Weekend

I had a nice long 4 day weekend for the holiday. It was nice to have Thursday off with nothing planned - we had a relaxing first have to the day then got busy working on the kids' rooms. It was like spring cleaning all over again! It was nice to clear out so much of the clutter, though.

Friday we celebrated with neighbors & friends & family. We grilled & popped fireworks and the kids played in the was so much fun!
The next morning we headed up to East Texas early to spend the rest of the weekend with my Grannie. I haven't posted about it b/c I wasn't sure how things were going to go, but my Grannie (who will be 100 in August) hasn't been doing too well. She's lived alone for 29 years since my grandfather passed away.

Grannie has been very active and lived alone & really has not had any serious health problems until now...but she has been in the bed going on four weeks now and under constant care. The blessing is that she is able to be a…
