A Wonderful Woman!

I wrote very long journal entry last night. Most of it is too personal to share, but here is the first paragraph to describe, in essence, what happened.

September 23, 2008
Today was a difficult day to say the very least. At 7:10 p.m. I was holding my Grandmothers hand as she passed from this world. It was a sacred moment for me, a happy moment where she wouldn't be in any more pain, but an awfully sad moment to realize I no longer have my Grandmother here on earth. She looked so peaceful as she her body relaxed, like a huge burden had been lifted. I know she was met by a big crowd, her parents and baby girl included, on the other side. She lived a good life and was a wonderful woman who will be a Goddess in the Celestial Kingdom with her loving eternal companion, my Grandpa Rulon.

The funeral is on Monday at 11:00 a.m. Tyler is Flying into PDX Friday to be with me and be a pallbearer. I want to blog more about this, but honestly I am too drained, emotionally and physically, to do so right now. I just thought I needed to do something so you would all know.

I am not ignoring blogging, I just have a lot going on in my family right now. I don't want to go into too many details, but hospice is taking care of my grandma in her home. I love her so much and don't know who I would be if it weren't for my grandma. I have so many feelings about the subject, but I am off to rent a movie to watch for my grandpa's 78th birthday. My grandma first knew she liked my grandpa when they were at the drive-in in Texas watching Charley's Aunt. She said they laughed at the same parts and she thought he was so cute. My cousin Jessica and I called a bunch of stores and finally found one that carried it in downtown Portland, so we are off to drive the 30 minutes to pick up a movie.

My Baby is ONE!

Saturday, September 13th was my baby's first birthday. I can hardly express the way I feel except that I am way too young to have a baby that old! I will share more of my feelings, Lucy's new abilities and many more pictures, but for now, here is a photo that describes Lucy in a nut shell!
Thanks for capturing the moment so well Ashleigh!
