A Precious Lady

It's been a weird couple of weeks or so for me around here hence the lack of blog posts. We've of course been busy with our move (18 days until we have to be out of this house- HELP!) but life has thrown us all for a loop we weren't expecting. Jared's sweet grandma passed away last week and her funeral is today. It's been sad saying goodbye to such a precious lady, but Jared and his family have such treasured memories of her that will stay with us forever.

She was sweet but spunky and I always loved that she would speak her mind. Even at her age, she could still crack a great joke that would make us all laugh. She told fascinating stories about her time working at a factory during WWII. When I was pregnant, she told me story after story about raising her 5 kids and which one cried the most, which one was her "favorite" and who was the easiest baby.

I'm so thankful she had the chance to meet T and get to know him over the last 10 months. Seeing T with great-grandparents was a huge blessing to us all. She was a loved lady who will be missed by so many people. Please keep Jared, my mother-in-law and the rest of their (huge) wonderful family in your thoughts and prayers.
