One year ago today our Momo left this earthly home for her heavenly one.

It's hard to believe it's been a year...sometimes it seems like it just happened yesterday, but most days it seems like it's been an eternity. I just miss her too much.

I think about how much she would be enjoying the boys right now, how much fun we could be having getting to shop together, all the amazing heart-to-heart talks we could be having, and just what an all-around amazing grandma I had.

I would do just about anything to have gotten more time with her...but God had other plans. She was pretty fabulous so I can understand why He would want her there. :)

And I think it's pretty fantastic (amazing, comforting, mind-blowing, etc.) that one day I will see her again, that I know exactly where she is right now, even as I type this...and it makes me very thankful that this earthly place we call home is just temporary. Because even though my life here is pretty amazing, it so completely pales in comparison to how life will be there that I can't even really imagine. Our life there will be beyond our wildest dreams. And that helps when I'm missing her and Dandy more than I can stand, or when I wonder what Brian's dad was like. Someday I won't have to worry about either of those things. So for now, even though I want them here so badly it hurts, I will choose to honor their memories here, and carry on their legacies of faith and love with my family.

We love you Momo, and miss you more than we can describe.

  1. thank you jackie for posting the words that I have been feeling the last few days. I miss her and want to talk to her so much my heart hurts, but I also know what an incredible place she and Dad and walt are right now and how she was before God called her home and knowing she is herself again brings me comfort. I love you sweetie, Aunt Becky
