Bittersweet Memories

This past week has been one full of bittersweet memories. Last Sunday Joe and I celebrated our 1st anniversary. We have already made so many memories together and I can't wait for more. I have been so blessed with an amazing husband who is nothing short of a saint.
On Tuesday, though, we lost my great grandmother Helen very suddenly. She was just short of her 92nd birthday this month. She wasn't sick...she didn't suffer...it all happened very fast and for that I am grateful...but we miss her and were not ready to lose her. I am very lucky to be my age and have been able to spend so much time with a great grandmother. Both Joe and I are especially blessed by this last year when we bought a house across the street from my grandparents, where Helen also lived. She was a firecracker, and everyone knew it! Thanks to so many of you who have comforted our family in the past couple of days. Take time to love on the ones you love.
