Brain Dump

I'm sitting in a dark hotel watching my son and my hubby sleep.  Sometimes I am simply overwhelmed by the love I feel for them. They are truly the best part of my life.  Our boy is already growing by leaps and bounds.  He is rolling over now.  On purpose.  And he has started teething.  At least that's what I'm blaming the cranky's my usually good natured boy has had on.


We have come to Southern CA for my Grandmother's funeral.  I'm not looking forward to tomorrow when we have the viewing.  I love being with my family but not under these circumstances.  I do know that if Grandpa and Grandma were with us they would have such a great time with all the teasing and laughter that goes on.  Losing Grandma makes me miss Grandpa.


I have made some amazingly good friends at my Mommy & Me group.  Who knew a hospital would be the place that I would meet some pretty awesome ladies that I know I will be friends with for a very long time?  They support they offer up, the advice and comfort they give are worth more than I thought was possible.  I'm so grateful for these strong, beautiful women that have become a part of my life.


I find myself being stretched these days.  I believe I'm being taught patience.  Such a fun lesson to learn.  Sometimes it seems at every turn I encounter a situation that requires me to stop and think.  I will sure be glad when this lesson is over.


Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers over the next couple of days and we go through this sad process of letting beautiful, wonderful matriarch rest in peace.

I'm always here for you. Stop responding to my emails and enjoy the personal time with the fam.It's so great that she could meet the love of your life, be at your wedding and meet precious Jackson. Hugs.

So sorry about your grandmother, Bree. Will be thinking about all of you especially much today.

Losing my grandma was, hands down, the hardest time of my life. I really thought I was losing it at times. It took me a good year until I was feeling somewhat back to normal, although I really haven't been the same since she died.

When we lose our older family members, it reminds us of how fleeting life is, and how we need to be sure we're living up to our full potential...telling people we love them, etc.

I'll be thinking about you today and in the days to come.
