Project Alicia : Saying Good-Bye For Now.

Saying Good-Bye For Now.

Today as the rains trickled down from heaven and the winds howled, my dear Grandma peacefully slipped away and was removed from her aged, tormented body here on earth and once again reunited with her husband that she spent so many years without.

As I listen to the rain hit the window I am reminded that there is a greater hand in the making of this beautiful earth.

I am reminded that I am but a tiny speck in the vastness of the universe.

I am reminded again of the fragility of life.

I am reminded to celebrate and cherish those we love most.

To embrace every day as if it were our last.

And to not lose sight of the things that are truly important in the scheme of our lives.

Good-bye for now...

  4. So sorry for your loss. When someone leaves us for better places, they leave a hole in heart. But know she is in a better place and one day you will see her again.

  11. Lish!! I am so sorry! Sincere condolences!

    I hope this isn't inappropriate, but the news coupled with your photos was absolutely poetic -- the sorrow won't last forever, just like the rain will stop, and there will be flowers again.

    My thoughts are with ýou and your family!

    Much Love,
