I’m not sure if many of you have noticed or not, but I’ve been gone a few days. I wish I could say I was off on a caribbean cruise or in the desert (hey it should be warm there, right) or at a Hawaiian getaway, but sadly, I’m not… Friday afternoon my mom sent me a text about 2pm and later I talked to her at 4… they had to rush my grandpa to the emergency room. He passed away Saturday morning at 4am. We had a funeral for him yesterday, but that doesn’t make me feel any better. No one has any idea how much time I spent with both sets of my grandparents throughout the years.
In fact, this may be sad but true, I think I spent more time with my family as a whole than I ever did with any of my friends, and no that isn’t sad b/c I got to spend time with my family, but I didn’t have many friends either… Oh well it’ll suck someday because I’m an only child and all my family is older than I am but for now I wouldn’t have changed a minute of my life for anything in the world.
I think the part that freaks me out a lot… the grandpa that died, is the one I referred to in the post Thursday. Anyway I just thought I would let you all know that I hadn’t completely fallen off the face of the earth, some of you who I am friends with on facebook could have seen the posts :(… but the rest of you, I promise I’ll be back.
All I can say right now is… This Sucks! I hope you all have had a better week/weekend than I have! I’ve been walking around in a haze all weekend/week so far. I’m down to one grandparent… and I’ve lost 3 of my bestestestestestest friends. I just know he isn’t in pain right now and isn’t suffering, however I so want to be selfish and keep him just a bit longer!
So I now ask a favor of you guys out there in bloggy land… tonight if your kids are getting on your nerves, hug them just a bit tighter! If you can, give our parents, your grandparents, your elderly neighbor a hug. If you aren’t close to them (proximity or otherwise) call them and just let them know that you love them!
Ok I’ll quit being a Debbie Downer (no idea where that phrase came from, it just sounded good) and I’ll be back tomorrow with a great, wonderful, happy, I think post 🙂
Peace, Love, & Grandparents!
