My Grammy

There are many reasons for my lack of blogging lately.....

Let's see there is the heat and humidity that is sucking the life out me. Or perhaps it's the new human I'm growing that's sucking the life out of me. I'M TIRED.
Besides lack of energy I've been feeling slightly ill which I'm hoping passes soon.
Also, Brendan is turning 6 this week and so I'm trying to figure out how to do his birthday when I'm feeling so BLAH!
And last, but certainly not least, my grandma died on Saturday. She was at my mom and dad's house for her last days, dying. My sister who lives in Kansas, flew home with her 2 kids to be with everyone and say goodbye and I've felt lonely and sad not to be there. I've spent a lot of time on the computer and the telephone trying to be and feel as connected and with them as I could from all the way over here. Ugh. It has been sad, sad, sad. It is wonderful to know she is in a much better place, a place she has longed to go since my grandpa died over 25 years ago. I have mixed feelings about her being with Willie and have found it unexpected how much I've thought about that. My Grandma Leona was such a character and anyone who knew her would say the same. She told the best stories and she loved to laugh and eat dessert. She made us laugh a lot! She liked to listen to my sister and I play the piano and she adored when Brendan and I would come for visits when we lived in town. I miss her already. Her service is on Tuesday and I feel homesick.
This picture was taken just shy of exactly 6 years ago. Oh, I love and miss my gram.

I'm sorry to hear this news and sorry that you couldn't be with your family physically during this week. Very hard stuff. Very hard week, I'm sure.

Oh Kaylee! I love you so much and am missing you so much. I wish with all my heart that you could be here on Tuesday. If it were possible we would set up the computer and the camera so you could be as close as possible to us. At some point we need to all sit together tell stories and laugh about funny Gram. Brendan happy birthday. You are getting so big! Love The Great Marshmellow
