Just wanted to share something sweet that happened this past weekend. Hubby, Jenna and Alec went up to my late mom-in-law's house to check on something. When they entered the house, Alec stopped, looked around, and then said softly, "She's not here." (the first three words). When Jen got back to my place, she told me what he said. I turned and told him, that that was right, she wasn't in her house anymore. I asked him if he knew where she lived now. His answer, "Heaven." (the fourth word). Then he turned away from us and said quietly to himself, "I miss her." (the last three words.
Seven little words. Every time I think about this, I tear up. Alec wasn't around Little Ma as much as some of the other great-grandkids, but he sure bonded with her. I notice that every so often, he will say things right out of the blue, like "I miss Grandma Hazel." Love does NOT die.
I also wanted to confess something today. I am addicted to Trump World TV. I find myself watching the political discussions on some of the channels constantly! This reminds me of the time during the O.J. Simpson trial. I planned my day around it. I would turn on every TV in the house, and go from room to room cleaning, while keeping up on every stinking detail. I never missed a beat. When the trial broke for lunch for a few hours, that's when I would do my grocery shopping and running errands. This went on for. . .what? something like nine months!
Anyhoo, all this business of the election, after the election, and getting ready for a new administration has been absolutely fascinating. It truly is playing out like the most impossible reality show ever. You can't make up some of the stuff that is unfolding. Life IS stranger than fiction. I can't imagine what will happen once we officially enter Trump World in January 2017.
I also wanted to comment on the big project that Jenna and I are working on. We have had some meetings with people who are being generous with their time, knowledge, and expertise. It is still scaring the beejeebers out of me when I think what we have waiting for us ahead, but, by golly, we ARE going to do this. It make take a few (or more) years, but it will get done.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
