I am so amazed by the outpouring of love that you all have shown me with our announcement, it just adds to our excitement. I can’t wait to tell you some of the details about the pregnancy so far, like how I found out, how the kids reacted when we told them and I’m sure you want to hear all about my morning sickness and how constipated I am. Right?
I wrote last night’s post a few hours before I published it, it took me just a few minutes to write, the words just flowed and I announced our news exactly how I wanted to, just naturally and with my heart.
Twenty minutes before publishing the post, my Mom called and told me that my Grandpa had just died. He was 95 and although we knew his health was poor, it still felt so unexpected. It still feels so unexpected, I should say.
My heart aches because, of course, he was my Grandfather and we have so many great memories of him, but my heart aches the most for my Mom, knowing that her Dad is no longer with us.
My Grandpa joins his wife, my Grandma and because of that, I happen to feel like he is one of the luckiest people in heaven right now, because my Grandma? Oh my, she was the best. I have no doubt that she has been loving on our James and Jake since they died and that has brought us comfort. So it comforts me knowing that they are together, once again.
So, this week, my posting will be light. My entire family will be driving in from all over the country to say their final goodbyes and although we are all so sad about our loss, it’s just one more reminder that life should be celebrated. Every day, every moment.
