For the past two years the world has gone on without me. I'm ok with that.
I was in my own world taking care of my girl.
Today the world continues to go on, sometimes I notice and sometimes
it's completely unnoticed by me.
There is one thing I won’t do. I am not going to jump back on that merry-go-round called life. You know the one, the one where you are so busy, usually with things that don’t matter, that each day becomes a blur and it's just a matter of time and you really do become dizzy.
I’ve seen too much to let myself get back on that ride.
Kristen taught me that it really is the simple things that mean the most.
Spending time with family,
visiting the sick,
making memories that will last forever,
making a blanket for a sick child,
making cookies for your neighbor,
sending a card to someone you have never met,
praying for a child who has just been diagnosed with cancer,
I mean really praying with your whole heart and soul.
She taught me that nice really does matter.
This week I think I will start with trying to be nice.
Maybe I should also try not to swear for an entire week.
(my kids are probably saying, "Yeah right. like that will ever happen.")
Whatever, I can try.
I'll end with some cute pictures of the grand kids from this past week...
As I pulled up to the cemetery a few days ago, this is what I saw...
And tonight, this is what I saw...
(my mom will love this one)
