My beautiful grandmother passed away one week ago. The past two months have been so, so difficult—including countless hours sitting at her hospital bedside and the emotional drain that comes with it. Her, my mom and I were incredibly close. Despite the long hospital stay, her death was unexpected. I wasn’t ready, though I doubt we ever are. Her love was endless for all around her, as was mine for her.
I’m currently filling out my annual self evaluation for work. I can’t believe I’ve been here a year. I am truly lucky to work in a positive, encouraging environment with fantastic people.
My best friend Sara is moving back from Baltimore today! We’ve never actually lived in the same city, so obviously I am SO EXCITED. I have two little sisters, but Sara might as well be my third. She is the one person I can count on unconditionally, live in her house for a week without feeling (too) bad, divulge my deepest secrets, etc. She’s actually Josiah’s cousin, our husbands are best friends, and Josiah and I are their son’s godparents! In short: I love her and am so happy to have her back.
