Life is slowly getting back to normal at our house. Nothing feels "normal" yet but things have been going on since February that have been life altering. Most of it I am not quite ready to share but I hope that someday I will be. The kids seem to be adjusting well to life without Grandma which I have to admit was a little weird to me at first. I didn't want them to be sad but I didn't understand when they seemed to move on with life so quickly. Then at dinnertime I would listen to them pray and ask God to help them not be sad. I realized that because of their child like faith they are ok with things. They know where Grandma is and they have complete confidence that they will see her again. I can't begin to describe how alone I feel at times. I heard someone say awhile back that when you lose your mom it truly feels like your an orphan. I couldn't agree more. I miss calling her just to talk. I miss just doing nothing with her. Even though I had a chance to tell her how much I loved her and how much she meant to me I still want a few more minutes to hold her hand and talk with her. But as my mom told me right before she died it will only be a minute until I see her again.
