crazy, weird, UNIQUE!


I’ve started this blog about 3 different times now.  The other starts were about mourning.  I don’t want to talk about sadness, because truly, today was not full of sadness or mourning…it was full of BLESSINGS.

Today WAS such an emotional day that ended with a house full of family and friends and a concert brought to us by the talented Jake Sessions.  What a blessing!

Today was the day we honored my brother’s life with a memorial service.  It truly was a blessing!

The preacher had such an awesome sermon.  The stories that were told by his friends, the humor that was shared, the slide show… it was all an absolute blessing.  Memories that flood the mind are gifts.  The love that was felt in that room today was so overwhelming!  How can I explain this day as a day of mourning?

It did have some tears, yes, but I believe they were brought on by the blessings of all the things I’ve listed.

Here are the absolute awesomest blessings…

My brother is not in pain, he can see, he can walk–run even!  My brother is not sad, he’s not hurting at all. My tears for him are tears of joy.  We cry because we will miss him, but one day…

I PLAN ON seeing him again.  I will get to reunite with him and all the ones I miss AND I GET THE EXACT SAME reward he is receiving right now.

What a blessing!
