This World is Not My Home...

I wrote my Monday Funday post too soon. I look back now and can see God shaking his head at me... complaining about silly things... little did I know what was about to come...

I don't feel like divulging all of the details right now, but after a very quick chain of events on Monday night my grandma Kathy was placed on life support and we were told that there was no chance for recovery.

I am heartbroken as is my whole family. I spent all of Monday night in the hospital with them, most of yesterday and several hours today...

My grandma is one of the most vibrant people I have ever known and SO full of life. She is one of those people who had never met a stranger and honestly is a kid at heart.

She loves my boys fiercely. She would drop anything to come help me any second of the day. She is an amazing grandma. She bakes the most amazing cookies and is such a giver. Frequently she would stop by and fill my deep freeze with food to surprise me, I will miss that so much.

On Saturday night we went to eat dinner for my mom's birthday. After dinner we came back to our house and ate cake. Bryan turned on music for Rhett to dance for everyone and one of the lasting memories I will have of my grandma is her dancing in my living room with Rhett.

So.full.of.life.

And two days later everything had changed.

I don't have much else to say right now except to please pray for my family- for my grandpa, for my mom and aunts and the rest of my family.

This world is not my home, I keep telling myself that. The Lord is still good in the midst of trial and turmoil. We aren't promised tomorrow.

Hope you're having a blessed Wednesday, and if I am out for a few days, now you know why.

  1. Grandmas are special people! The last memory I have of my grandma is Aubrey telling her many times over "I love you great grandma". Even though her stroke took away many functions and kept her from communicating she fully knew this was her great grand baby and knew what Aubrey was saying. I love that I have this story to always tell Aubrey. How loved and special she made her great grandma feel. Rhett will also have this special story of his great grandma dancing with him and making her feel happy. Even though our babies won't remember these special women, I know they will cherish being a part of the last memory we have of them here with us on earth.
