Big Hugs & Thanks To Everyone


Big thank you's go out to all of you for your sweet comments & prayers for Matt & the family! It's been a crazy few days so sorry they are a little late but they never went unnoticed. You are all so good to me. I ALL have a special place in my heart. I have spent alot of time with Matt's grandpa. He lives an hour away from me but I have tried to go up there everyday since the funeral. I could set with him & talk for hours & actually have lately. See he has Alzhiemer's & has had it for I believe 9 years but he's doing great. My sister in law (which I LOVE!) sat with him on the porch & sang. It was one of those moments you want to freeze in time. He'd sing songs he used to sing in church (He was a preacher) Shannon was sitting beside him just dancing & singing along. I actually got a video of it & I have played it over & over today. Something about him just brings a smile to your face. I am so blessed that my children have such a wonderful Great Grandpa! (Big PawPaw as they call him)
After being on the go for days I now have so much house work to do as if I didn't have enough before! I have done some today here & there but I really needed to take it easy today. Well, as easy as 3 kids will let me...LoL! Tomorrow I have to get my butt back in gear. Haven't checked the weather for tomorrow yet but I'm hoping it's a pretty day (today was rainy) so I can turn up the music, open the blinds & clean clean clean! Well thats about it for tonight. I am starting to get a headache. Could it be stress???? Nah not me!! :) Sleep is sounding pretty darn good no great right now!

But at the same time you need some much needed ME time.The video was great...Keep up the good work. I'm so proud of you....Love ya girlfriend,Glo
