Thursday, February 7th, my Grandfather passed away. Though it was not sudden, it’s been a really hard thing to grasp. I would see him at least once a week and when he became sick after Christmas, I tired to get to either the hospital or nursing home whenever I could. I wish I had more time with him. He was suffering and I am happy he is at peace with our Lord. I just loved him so much and am looking forward to see him again someday. This weekend I was surrounded by family for three days and even though it was under these circumstances, I was happy to see them all. I need to remember not to take people, especially my family, for granted. I am so blessed with the people in my life.
