Wow, you really had me going. Flying the midnight rocket on Monday to Atl, then on to Pittsburgh. Oh and let's not forget the 2 1/2 drive through the country to Dubois (on 3 hour's sleep~that's airplane sleep)
Thursday was a
rough, tiring, exhaustive 16 hour travel day. I crawled into bed at 11:30 only to wake up at 5 to get ready for work. But I got up with a smile on my face...so
nanny nanny boo boo on you
I'm so glad I came to see you at rest. I wasn't sure how I was going to get through your funeral. But I did and I'm a better person for it. I feel peace for the first time in a long time. I know you are exactly where you want to be. Oh and the very loud thunder boomer when the Pastor was reading your birth/death date...that was-without a doubt, you trying to take over G-d's job! This we know and had a little chuckle over it.
Dear friends of Nana's church,
Thank you for embracing me with your warm hugs and stories of "Alice." You enlightened me & I learned a few new things about this woman you celebrated. I'm really grateful for the women of the church who pulled together a beautiful lunch and I enjoyed listening to what each of you had to say.
I wasn't sure what to expect coming but I can tell you I came away a better person, I have some much needed closure and I feel peace...something I haven't felt in quite some time.
Thank you for taking such awesome pics so I didn't have to edit photos from my big girl camera!
I have a renewed appreciation for you. You bring back such happy childhood memories. I knew that when my family drove up that hill to Nana & Granddad D's house-there you were & the best childhood memories were just a stone's throw away.
I'm almost 50 so how old does that make you?
I have a love affair with barns...I hope some day I can return to PA, under happier circumstance, and shoot barns to my heart's content.
Dear Blog friends...
I've got a
Happy (teaser) snapping!
