Days gone by

Today is a day that i have a heart full of mixed emotions, Its the day of my husbands birth, he is 33 years old.

with each year he amazes me more and more.

 

Also 17 years ago my Grandmother Elva Francine Patterson went to be with Jesus.

I did not get to spend a whole lot of time with her as a child, and like everyone she made mistakes, but i loved her and still do.

I cannot wait till i see her again in Heaven.

Sometimes in our minds i think we have an idea of what a person would think or be like after their gone, i suppose  almost like a graven image. In my mind i think my Grandma would be proud of me, what i have done with my life, my children, things like that. I am not entirely sure about this, but in a way, i like to hold on to those feelings.

I wish she could have lived to be at my wedding, see her Great-Grand Children be born, and for them to go to her house in Fontanelle, ride horses and pick raspberries in her garden. Memories i cherish from my childhood. Its up to me to make memories like those for my children.

 

The last two days i have had 1 or 2 children home, with fevers and coughs. I have been pumping them full of Kombucha, and hot tea with honey. I hate when my babies are sick.

 

I think i might do a little sewing today...we shall see what the day holds.
