It has been one year since Grum went to be with Jesus. How do you mark such a shocking day in our family? How do you memorialize it on this morbid-'anniversary'? What is there to say? I cannot say there have not been sad moments. I cannot say that tears have not been shed. I cannot say that today isn't a sadder day than another day. However, I can say that looking back it has been a wonderful year. By no means is that to make my grandmother's passing seem trite. But actually it speaks more to the point, she is celebrating and renewed with Jesus. Why would we mourn and pout for a year here on earth wasting away? We shouldn't, we didn't, and we won't.
Shortly after she passed I posted this poem and it still holds true. My grandmother was a beautiful spirit and while we mourn her passing we hold strong to the truth that we will see her again one day in heaven. I can think of no better way to mark a year of her passing than simply to revisit this post and watch the video I made of her life with us. It was a wonderful life and we were blessed to have her for so long.
I miss you, Grum. Everyday.
