I love this one, because it kinda looks like he is looking right at me!!!

My Honey hard at work....

God will never let you down....

Well, contrary to the post below...we did make it to say goodbye to my Grandmother. Once the sun started to melt Friday afternoon my husband looked at me and said "I think this is our chance" Man oh man we booked. He hurried Hayden over to my in-laws and I called Holly and told her we were going. She got her kids squared away and we threw everything in the truck a boogied.

The overall ride was pretty smooth. There was about two hours that were pretty scary. The ice was just everywhere, but my husband was so careful and slow. We made it just fine!

We didn't tell our parents we were coming because we knew we would get the "its too dangerous" spill and we didn't want to worry them. So when we came in town my sister called the hotel where we usually stay and boom its full, we called 4 other hotel everyone is booked. The front desk lady at my parents hotel was nice enough to call a competitor and snag us the last room available!! While we are searching for shelter my Mom call me and we told her we were in town. She was so happy. She said that she felt like everything was complete...and it truly was. God didn't let us down, He didn't prevent us from anything. He just had a different arrival time then we did!!

We had the service today and it was beautiful. I am so glad I was able to say my final goodbye to my Sweet Grannie in person...all is right in my world.

Sweet Grannie

Most of you know by now that my Grandmother has passed away. (Her obit for those that might want to see )She died just before 2 am on 2.1.2011 and she didn't make it easy for any of us! My parents and Uncle left for Odessa as soon as they got the call from the Hospice nurse that she wouldn't make it through the night. They only got to Abilene Monday night and have been stuck there until today. Matt and I tried to drive out yesterday, we made it all the way to Winters, Texas but it was just too dangerous. The streets became solid ice with no tracks. Cars were sliding off the road, so we turned around and came home. My sister's plan was to fly out this afternoon, so I got a plane ticket for the same flight, but of course this morning the flights were canceled.

We have tried everything. It just isn't going to be in the cards. My best friend told me that there must be a reason, it's God's plan. My reply was that I felt the same way, but I can't help but feel resentful...why would he not want us to say our final goodbye? She told me that is was ok to feel resentful. God is big enough to take whatever I'm feeling. She's right. It's ok for me to feel mad, sad, resentful, hurt...He will open arms for me no matter how i feel.

The picture below is all I have of my Grandmother at her 82nd birthday party we had for her in June 2010. I am so glad we made that trip. That is the last time I saw her. I will cherish that weekend forever.

My husbands co-worker as him what he thought my Grandmother's first words were when she got to Heaven. Matt replied, she said "Hi Darlin'!" I know she did. She saw Jesus and Grampie at the Pearly Gates and that is exactly what she said...

I love you so much Grannie. I am so sorry I can't say goodbye to you in person, but I know you understand. You will be greatly missed.
