I just love to say that. HA!!! I tell you, life is rich when you can be so easily amused.
On another note – somewhat more serious. I guess I am still in a bit of a period of grieving. I know that every now and then, long after saying good-bye to Nani, I will think of something like, “I wonder if Nani will hem these pants for me” and remember she isn’t there. And for a moment or two, I will remember her, smile and say a little thanks to God for her life. And that’s pretty cool.
In the theme of thankfulness and richness in life, taking time to say good-bye to Nani reminded me of all the people I have to be thankful for and the richness my life that has nothing to do with what I have in your bank account. At her wake, so many showed up to say thank you to her for her impact on their life. Her legacy. And what was amazing were the awesome friends that showed up for her wake to show support for me and my family.
Thank you to all our friends who came to the wake and to everyone who called/emailed their support and offered their prayers for our family.
