This was us at almost this exact time last year, when we stayed with her at Tybee Beach.
She will surely be missed, as evidence of how many people gathered together to celebrate her life. My mom, sisters and I spent several hours going through her old pictures, love notes and journals and it made me want to write. I love that she had gathered all of her memories so that we got to experience them, too. She had an amazing life, that had a ton of love in it and now she is at peace with Jesus.
Although the reasons were sad, it was really nice to see family. My dad and 3 of my siblings hadn't met Lincoln yet, so we were all glad they got to see him before Thanksgiving. The kids were all a little ray of sunshine over the weekend. Lincoln had smiled once ever before the trip, but the first morning we were there, he gave my sweet momma these grins thatI know she needed.
Times like these just make you want to hold everyone a little bit closer and gives you a bigger appreciation for life. Don't miss a chance to tell the people you love how much they mean to you. My to-do list has more snuggles and less cleaning in it this week for sure!
