So when you have a loved one die, suddenly you don't feel much like blogging. I mean how do I go on about the minutia of life when that happens?
I'm not really sure, except that I know that life keeps moving.
One morning I was in the bathroom at my parents house and the sun was coming up, and seeing that I'm all reflective right now, I took it in differently. My Aunt Linda had a life full of sunrises and now I'm having my life of sunrises.
Soak it in.
Live it up.
Life is short so enjoy it.
And please don't mind me while I'm sappy for a while.
Oh and let me tell you what brought smiles to all our faces this weekend...
What a nice distraction it was to look over and see this sweet little face.
But of course it made me sad. RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING MAKES ME SAD.
It was just a strange weekend.
On one hand we were saying goodbye, and on the other we were celebrating life. Linda's life and our Nathan's life.
And it was nice to have something fun to celebrate after Saturday.
We needed the laughter.
And time to just hang out.
And this young man is going to be 15.
That means driving and girlfriends and all that ridiculousness.
So yes, it was a reflective weekend.
A weekend with a lot of tears
But also a lot of laughter.
