Things for me are hard right now. My Grandma (My dad's mom) went to be with my Grandpa yesterday, in heaven. She had become ill, and God felt, it was her time to come home.
She feels no pain now. No matter how comforting this is; my heart still breaks. I loved my Grandma very much. And after losing my Grandpa January 29th 2009, and My other Grandma, March 17th 2006, my Father In Law April 7th 2006. My heart is broke.
I just wanted to let everyone know how very thankful I am for your kind words, and emails. It truly means the world to me to know that you care, and understand that It will be a little while before I get back into blogging whole heartily. I can't even read, let alone do anything with this blog. I will come around of course. I just need a couple days to take it all in. Go through the Funeral. And just deal with this the best I can.
Again, Thank you all. For everything. Me & My family really appreciate all of your prayers.
Here is a poem that really touched my heart.
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears,
But be thankful we had so many good years.
I gave you my love, and you can only guess
How much you've given me in happiness.
I thank you for the love that you have shown,
But now it is time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
That it is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on.
And if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All my love around you soft and clear
And then, when you come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home".
