The Most Wonderful Time...

I'm still here...just haven't been motivated to blog, or scrap, or do a lot of things. Hoping to get back in a good flow. I know...a blog post with no picture isn't a great blog post. I spent too much time updating to actually think about adding a picture today. Maybe tomorrow.

Today she is 4!

Hard to believe that a mere four years ago she looked like this.
Today she looks like this.
Time has gone by so quickly and eternally slowly just the same.

I love you, sweet girl.

I know, I know...but look at this!

Can I just say that I really love my new camera, and I really, really love taking photos, and the Pioneer Woman helped me do this: I downloaded the PW actions for Photoshop Elements...this one is "seventies" and I love the look of it. Brenna and Pa had been riding the tractor and they stopped just long enough for me to get the shot.
Yes, I need to post more often but life has been just plain busy. School is out on Friday and then hopefully I'll have more time. I had every intention of doing Photo-A-Day for May but it just didn't happen...I'll get there. Have a great Memorial Day!

It Arrived!

My new camera came today...so excited to start shooting with it! I only took a few shots today because I had to wait for the battery to charge. No fun! Like a 3 year old with a pile of Christmas gifts, but being told you have to wait a few hours! It's definitely going to take some getting use to but I can't wait to see what comes of it! Yes I know it is a boring post without a pic, but I need to get some more before I post something!

In remembrance...

My grandma passed away peacefully Sunday night. I am so thankful for the memories, the things I learned, and the time I had with her in my life. I'm thankful that she was part of Brenna's life. It's funny how Brenna was always so calm with Grandma, even when she was so little, she would just sit quietly with her for long periods of time. I'm thankful that she was part of the world and that she touched so many lives.I am thankful that she is at peace. She will be greatly missed...

The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

I'm sitting on the front step of my grandparents house. It's the eve of my 34th birthday and I am saddened. Saddened because I'm not sure if this is the last time I will spend with my grandma. It's been coming for a while but that doesn't ease the wealth of emotion I am experiencing at this moment. What I am greatful for is the love that is being shared with her as friends come to wish her well as she moves on to the next chapter in her life. That we are bonding together and holding tight to the knowledge that she will be free from pain and confusion, that she will be shining her ever bright light onto us as we move about the earth. She has always been a most amazing woman and I am so fortunate to have had her for so long. Fortunate that our daughter has experienced all the love that great-grandmas give. Fortunate that I received so much love and knowledge and care and fun. Fortunate too that my little Brenna is sick, not that I ever want her to be sick but more that I can spend the time with her and with grandma, time that I otherwise may not have with either of them.The memories are many and fill my heart with joy. So today I am sad, but I will rejoice when she lets go because she will be in a better place, no longer tired, no longer in pain, but free.
