You left but didn't close the door. 
And so we wanted to have more.
 But what we got was less of you, 
the one we loved, the one we knew. 
This bid farewell has lasted years.
So yes, it's sad and we've shed tears.
But now at last you've gone to rest, 
and found your peace. It's for the best. 
In heaven, it's a brand new day. 
There is no more fog to block the way. 
You're once again all that you were, 
and in the light - of that we're sure. 
Though gone, you're with us everyday. 
You're in our hearts, and there you'll stay. 
For no disease or death can still, 
what love recalls and always will.

One year ago today...

One year ago today, I spent my Grandaddy's last day on Earth with him.  I rubbed his legs, sang him songs, and tried to encourage him to drink.  That evening, his sick body couldn't take anymore, and he passed on from this world to the next.

I read this at his funeral.

I can't really write anything else.  I just do my best every day to make him as proud of me as I was of him.

Work was difficult this week.  Too much indoor recess = crazy children.  Luckily next week is supposed to be warmer, so I will be able to get them outside!

I dislike my classes, but they are going well.  I'm a week ahead. Yay!

Wedding is planned, except for deciding where we will eat after. Honeymoon will hopefully be booked this week!  I have a few things to purchase,  but we're set.  Nice weight off my shoulders.

Running.. um... so the weather is supposed to be nice this week!  I will be able to get myself outside! :)
