Just For Me

I really keep this blog for me...and for my family.  Tonight I had such a great night and enjoyed time with my kids.  I just don't want to forget some of these precious moments, so I think I will try to record them here more often...just for me and for my own heart.  With that said, I just got a text from Brock (yes, he was in another room texting!) and this is what it said:

"Hey just wanted to let u know 2 things: 1. how much I love you (more than you know) 2. I just discovered a new love for the bible!!! :) Just sayin it...luv you soooooo much!"

Now, if that didn't melt my heart, nothing will.

Kenzie has started playing club volleyball and she had her first scrimmage today. It was really fun to watch.  She gets to play with her cousin Grace and her friend Kimberly.  She has also gotten to make lots of new friends on her team.  Her coach has done a terrific job of teaching her the fundmentals.  We were a little blown away with all that she had learned in such a short time.  I think we are really going to enjoy this!

We lost Grandma today.  If you have ever heard us talk about her, you know that we lovingly called her "Grandma Weezy."  Her name was Louise and she was Chuck's grandma...and my grandma...and Brock and Kenzie's great grandma...and we loved her so, so much!  You see, I had lost both grandparents on my dad's side before I had ever met Chuck.  Shortly after we were married, I lost both of my mom's parents.  So, Grandma Weezy became "my" grandma...and I loved her no less than my own.  She was kind to everyone, but still had enough "ornery" in her to be fun.  I think the thing that I most loved about her was that she loved me for me.  She was a good person...and we will miss her.  One thing that I will always remember was when Grandma accepted Jesus as her personal savior.  I remember my mother in law, Cindy, telling me with tears in her eyes that she never thought she would see the day.  It is because of that day that I can be absolutely certain that Grandma is now free from pain and suffering and she is in Heaven with Tina, Grandpa, and so many others that have gone before us.  She was so sick these past few months and my heart is glad that she no longer has to suffer, but that doesn't take the sting of losing her away.  We will spend the next few days together as a family, loving each other, comforting each other, and remembering our Grandma Weezy.  Love you, Grandma!

I Am Loved.

Well, I love cupcakes.  I especially love cupcakes made by Tiffany Spray.  So when I discovered that my favorite coffee shop was going to be selling her cupcakes, I could not wait.  The only problem is that I knew that I probably wouldn't get one because I wasn't going to have time to go up before work and I knew that after work they would probably gone.  I need not have worried because when I got out of school today, I had a voicemail from my mom telling me that my super sweet dad had gone up at 7:30 this morning and snagged me a cupcake. Yep - my dad is cool like that.  And it was... yummy!  I found out later that my awesome hubby had tried to surprise me with one too, but, as I had predicted, they were sold out! :)
