In Honor Of A Great Lady

Sometimes it is all about the journeys we take.

The reason for the journey may be sad.
 It may be hard.
It may even be heart breaking.
Or the reason for the journey could be the natural progression of life.
It could even be many things!
But many times it is not the reason for the journey, but the journey it's self that is important!

We recently went on a journey....

To play dress up with distant cousins who we don't see often enough (even though we live a scant 2 hours away).

To invade a not so distance cousin's home and take over her glorious kitchen!

(and when I say invade, I REALLY mean INVADE!)

On our journey we got to dress up in our fine clothes (some of them we haven't worn in a while!) and see the little man who moved so far way last summer!

On our journey we even got to witness the feisty side of our family and visit with many fun folk.

On our journey there were special moments for siblings who haven't seen each other in almost a year.

And there were even smiles to be had.

But most of all, we went on this journey to say a final earthly farewell to a woman dearly loved.

A woman who has gone home to the home where she no longer hurts.

A home where her body is restored to the glory of her youth.

A home where her precious son and daughter awaited her homecoming.

A home her dear husband journey to before her.

A home where I pray she finds the peace she has long sought.

I love you Grandma.... see you when I get there!
