What I thought was the perfect day....

Today I had a friend call at 9:00am - "I have at least 20 bags for your fundraiser!  Can I come now?!?!?"  Me, "Of course!"

11:00 We are biking to Nolan's soccer clubs year end picnic with Hunter who is part of the league, but not in Nolan's group.  My boys love Hunter.

2:30 Biking back from the picnic.  I am behind watching what a beautiful family I have.  How lucky am I?!?!?!

3:00 We learn that Hunter has try outs at 5:30 at Wilson fields.  Okay, plan the day, his grandparents are at a play, work it out.

5:00 Take Hunter to try outs, go to Fred Meyer.  Have beautiful interactions with customers including one little boy that is dressed to the nines with a microphone.  I say, "Little man, you look awesome!"  and he confidently says, "Why thank you!"  His Dad and I crack up.

5:30 I am home and am finishing up dinner thinking about how cool my life is.

6:00 I get a text from Hunter's Grandparents that they will pick him up.

7:00 We eat while watching the season finale of Amazing Race.

8:30 Boys in bed

9:00 Grant kisses me good night while I am doing lunches.

10:21 I get the call that my Grandmother has past away.  I was with her Thursday.  She told me she needed to go.  I told her it was fine and that we got it.  We will be fine.  I am healthy and I will make sure it will be okay.

What I know.....she is free.  She is not confined by her body and the worry of Dad and I. 

10:22 I call Peggy on her home phone - she is on vacation.  I let her know that Grandma past.

10:23 I call my Dad.  I am meeting him in the morning at 9:00 to get her stuff and "process" the event.

10:25 I wake Grant up and cry.

She is free.  I love her and she taught me so many things.  She was obstinate, and so am I.  She can make a meal out of bacon grease, beans, a little chicken and potatoes, so can I.  She taught me to sew.  Straight stich without swearing, others with.  She taught me to look at the world outside my Father's eyes and I did.  She taught me to be fierce, honest, and humble.  I think I got the first two.  I don't know if I will ever get the third.

It was the perfect day.  My Grandmother is free and so am I.

Love, Ang

I also learned a lot from her and will miss her a bunch.
Am so glad she is at peace and no more hurting .
We had some GREAT times and I will think of her often when I go out to a meal and have a ` coupon `
Love and lots of hugs to you and your family ..

Love Peggy
