Sooo...we just returned from vacation. First, I thought I'd share some pictures from our trip:
While we were on vacation, we got word that my grandmother passed away. So we returned home and are leaving out again for the funeral.
I have great memories of my grandma.
But they are all old memories, because she hasn't been herself for quite a while.
She had Alzheimer's.
It is a very sad, detrimental disease.
And it can be very hard on a family too.
So I am choosing to remember my grandmother like this:
(This is in my first ever scrapbook!)
She was full of life.
She hated snakes! We'd tease her and throw rubber snakes around to freak her out.
She liked nice things, and was always scared that us kids would ruin them.
She was always up for an adventure and enjoyed traveling in the motor home with grandpa.
She loved QVC. :)
She enjoyed playing games with family.
She did not understand why people would eat cheese pizza (it was missing all the good stuff...those other toppings).
She would make bacon and eggs for breakfast when we would visit.
She'd encourage us to play with the neighbor kids.
She was proud of her kids and her grandkids.
Grandma, you will be missed.
Keep us all in your prayers as we travel to California for the funeral.
I do have several blog posts scheduled, so keep checking in.
Have a wonderful day!!
