Just when you think you are sure of everything in your life God reminds you one more time who is in charge. My grandfather passed away right before lunch yesterday. Yes I know he was in his 80's and had never been the same since my grandma left us 10 years ago but it was so difficult for me to grasp. Still is. His funeral will be friday morning and tomorrow I will pick up my 8 YO dd who thought the moon and sun revolved around him and tell her he has gone to heaven. A happier place for him, even though right now its sad for us. I was very close to him as well at her age and she was blessed enough to share that too. Today I am finishing an album about his life I started over a year ago, never wanting to finish due to the inevitable. Now I have the biggest deadline of my life but with no choice but to finish before the viewing at 9 am tomorrow. I sit here now wishing I would have taken that picture I wanted to take to start the important people in our lives album that I had as my new years resolution. now there isnt a recent picture, just a little pain I feel for him and my mom and myself and my daughter who will for the first time in her 9 years learn about why God chooses people to go to heaven.
