Sometime you never know when you will see your last day. As most of you have been reading Krista's blog you know how my family was turned upside down in a week. My Grandparents have always been there for me and anyone in my family in there on way. The thing I miss the most is hearing my grandmothers voice just telling me that everything will be fine. I miss talking to her at my lunch and miss calling in the morning and hearing my grandfathers voice. I would ask what are you doing and he would say just holding the bed down or holding down the chair. On Thursday I had planned on going over that night to see them and take some pic's of them with Laci for her birthday. Laci turned 3 on that Wed. The last time I really talked to my Grandmother was on Tues.

There is many memories of my grandparents that I will always have. Like one time when my mom (Shelia) took me and my brothers to Kokomo to live. And it was snowing really bad I put on my coat and said that I am going back to Georgia to live with my mamaw , papaw and daddy. And here I went a little 3 year old girl out in the snow (did not get very far). When my mom called my mamaw that night she told me that it would be fine and that I need to be a good girl.
I just remember that it made me fill good. Just like when I use to stay the summer when I was little and later when I lived with them. I could not go to bed at night with out hearing my mamaw say "Good night sweet dreams and my God bless you" Later after I was married I would call my mamaw at night just for her to say those words to me and I would sleep fine at night as long as I heard them. About a month ago I started saying it with Laci at night. The first time my husband heard her say it he laughed and said it sounded like my grandmother.

My next few blogs will be about memories of my grandparents. For you to better understand what these people mean to me. Here is a pic that was taken last year.

Oh my I haven't read Krista's blog but it doesn't sound good on this blog. I am so sorry I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.. I too got bad news about my 99 1/2 year old grandmother this week.. I will dearly miss her... she has a health issue that is inoperable due to her age. I will miss her dearly as she has been a very large part of my entire life as a child and also as an adult.
I just wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and marking me as a favorite.. please visit often always something going on ;)

Shanda, my heart is with you. I could not imagine having both my grandparents alive. I only have one still here. Yours were precious. My thoughts and prayers are with you. If you need anything, you know how to find me.
