Missing one of the most influential people in my life something fierce 20 years later. She always knew the right thing to say to me when I needed it most. To know my Maw-Maw was to know genuine love. She was a huge source of strength and unconditional love and easily one of the most sincere people you’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Twenty years ago today she went home. There hasn’t been a single day since then that I haven’t thought of her. Some say time eases pain and possibly it does to an extent. But I’m certain she took a huge part of my heart with her when she took her last breath. She only got to hold one of my four children, but make no mistake all of them grew up knowing her name, stories about her, and over the last few years I’ve even begun teaching our little ladies how to cook some of her recipes. I’ll never stop missing her, but I’ll also never forget the tremendous impact she made on my life and how lucky I am to have been able to have her for my Maw-Maw. Grandparents are such a blessing to have around and I cherish the memories I have of mine.
Not sure how or why we have waited so long to go check out this beautiful park in Fredericksburg, TX, but today seemed like a perfect day with beautiful weather for our family to get out and do some exploring! Bitty and I also really enjoyed searching for heart shaped cactus.
She’s here! My sweet beautiful Goddaughter has finally arrived! Her mommy was induced early yesterday morning. By mid-day I told her I had a feelings she was going to wait until today to be born. Sure enough, Alicen is stubborn like her Nanny and made her poor mama wait a whole extra day to hold her! At 1:12am Alicen came into this world at a whopping 6 lbs 13 oz and 20″! I can not wait to spoil this sweet girl. I wonder if she knows how much she is already loved?
Busy day, basically how I feel.
Anyone that really knows Aub knows her undying love for Michael Jackson since she was a tot. Tonight we were able to bring her for the next best thing. She smiled, sung, & danced her little 12 year old heart out all night. Honestly it was a priceless evening with our daughter. And we got to have some sushi for dinner, which of course made her happy too!
Note to self:
“It is entirely possible to be a kind, loving person who refuses to tolerate bullshit. In fact, it’s not only possible, it’s absolutely necessary.”
