Hard Weekend

I don't know how many of you who follow this blog know through facebook or other means but my Aunt Emma passed away on January 16th. It was the day after we got back from Hawaii.

I will be honest and say that I am struggling with it. I know that she is at peace now and not suffering through this debilitating disease that stole her ability to walk & talk. But I miss her dearly. We prayed so hard for a miracle and God answered not with a miracle of healing but with the miracle of taking her to be with Him for eternity. But it's still a hard pill to swallow when we wanted to see her body restored here on earth.

This weekend we will be traveling to Portland for her memorial service. I will be glad to see my family and have them there so we can support each other during this difficult time. She was so unique and stood out as a adventurous, crafty, fun-loving, giving person in our family.

Please pray for us as we prepare to say our goodbyes and celebrate her life together this weekend.
