Did you ladies have a good day today? Why or why not?
It was an emotional day for the family, but we still made the best that we could of it. Today marked one year that my grandmother passed away. October wasn't kind to us at all last year. My friend's stepdaughter and her friend was killed in a car accident last year. The day of their funeral is when my grandmother passed away. My friend's stepdaughter came over often and my grandmother smile and laugh - really brightened her day. So, today we had a little get-together with out immediate family and of course my friend. Although it was emotional at first, we ended up having so much fun and ate tons of food. My family actually proved that we can get together without fighting for a change!
My son actually shocked me. The graveyard has a big portion of my family buried at it, most of them that passed away before I was born. In a row, I have great-aunts and uncle and great-grandparents then my grandparents at the very end. My son was two headstones down and kept jumping up and downing shouting "It's papa! Look! It's papa!" I looked at my mom and she had this look of fright on her face. I asked her, "who's buried there?" She said, "that is my grandfather that passed away a couple months before your brother born." There is something about this kid that is special - he just seems to know things and it's weird! Call me crazy, but if you guys only knew the creepy things he has told me.
So what did you guys do today? Sorry so long!
