Cherish the moments.....

I have a lot of catching up to do. When I came home from Texas I hit the ground running and haven't stopped. I'm almost ready to post the pictures from last week's Sign Language class and my trip to Texas. But I don't have time right now, it will have to be after Sign Language class this afternoon.

My oldest sister's father-in-law passed away yesterday as did one of my dear friends from high school's father-in-law. What a sad day for those families. I wanted to pass along a part of what my niece wrote in her blog about her grandfather's passing. I left out a big part of it-it seemed too personal for me to share but here's some of it:

"It's a blessing, the way it happened, the ease of his going. And everything's fine for him now, and we're all thankful for that. But that's one part of my life that has always been there that isn't anymore. And more so for others, even, than for me.

And then it was time to go and everyone left the room. Dad stayed to hold Grandma upright as she said goodbye to Grandpa.

What does one say to the only person who knows your whole story, who has shared your whole life with you, when that life is all behind you and you’ve got this moment to say just one thing more? Not much, I think. After all these years I think it’s been covered. I only caught the last line as she squeezed his hand. “I’ll see you in the morning, dear,” Grandma said. “See you in the morning."

Life is short. Cherish the ones that you love.
