A place to share with family and friends now that we have moved half way across the country.

This is a song that Mom told me to listen to right after I found out Grandpa had finally went home. Thanks so very much for sharing this with me and well now I will share with all of you. The song speaks for itself.
I Love You All And Miss You Much!
I am forever grateful to the Lord for allowing me to come home to visit my Grandpa before he goes home to be with Grandma. This is a memory that will always be in my heart and I will never forget as long as I live.
I will miss you so much Grandpa... All your funny little stories about life and our family. One of the things I missed once Grandma was gone was how you two would tease and push each others buttons. Not only was it always amusing and funny but I felt such a sense of security with the two of you knowing that through all the years how much the two of you loved each other. You always know how to make someone feel so welcome and loved no matter what the situation. Your ambition and passion about life and not sitting back watching it go by but instead making a decision to go for it! I am going to miss walking down that hall of photos... To me it represented a long lifetime of love and family. I am going to miss the round coffee table that for some reason always reminds me of Christmas time and the display of ice skaters and the gumdrop tree! Grandpa you are the heart of this family and I want you to know that it will not be the same with out you.
Though it is hard for me to say goodbye to you Grandpa. I want you to know that I am so happy for you to be able to go home and see Grandma. Plus you never know... maybe Sampson is waiting there too! :) I know that Grandma is missing you as you are missing her. I will forever hold on to the words of wisdom and love that you have given to me and pass that on to my children and grandchildren as well. Always and forever you will be a part of my heart that I will never let go.
My life is made up of a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys that we created together. In different ways they have all inspired me to be a better wife, mommy and person.
I started this blog as a way to share our "little" adventures with our friends & family that exactly one year ago we packed up & moved half way across the country from. It has been a roller coaster of emotions since then but it has also taught me so much about "being thankful" for the little things and not taking life for granted.
