I apologize (to those who care) about my lack of posting... between my empty brain and my as of late excruciatingly slow internet, I haven't really had a reason to. I am totally in a funk. I've had zero desire to blog, which is strange to me. Life has been normal and unexciting... I don't know why I can't ever be happy with just that.
My cousin is doing better.... THANK YOU all for your prayers and encouragement! He had surgery and the updates have been few, but I think that's probably a good thing.
My great great aunt died last week... she was 91. Her husband is still living, and is 97. Initially, I wasn't sad with the situation, she lived a full, long life and was married for 69 years. I figured it was pretty much a perfect scenario. That is, until we sat down to talk to my great great uncle at the viewing, and someone asked him how he was doing. He simply responded, "Sad," with tears in his eyes. My heart just broke. The one funny story I heard was my great grandma's (who is pushing 98 and going strong) reaction to her sister's death... "Aww, but I wanted to go first!!!" She's just waiting for Heaven, satisfied with her full life. How I wish I could have the same attitude, even at 24. To live every moment as if it were my last... I'm definitely going to try.
Oh, and one last thing... it's $%&@(&#*#! cold here. 14 degrees currently, but it was closer to 0 this morning, cold enough to close schools. So guess who got to entertain ALL of the kids the whole afternoon? hehe, I'm so kidding. They were great, we had so much fun. All I know is that I'm THROUGH with this weather and its ridiculous consequences. My parents were able to get away to Florida for a few days for my dad's work... NOT FAIR. I talked to my mom as she was soaking up sun by the pool this morning, and she laughed when I informed her that my frozen car said it was 10 degrees outside. Not funny!!!
