I do love Josh's family so much though, so if I couldn't be at home then this is the place I'd want to be. Since we moved to Ogden, we've been living with Josh's grandparents who also take care of his great-grandmother, Grandma Clark. She is a hilarious woman, though I don't think she ever tried to be...she just was. Over Thanksgiving, we've noticed her health going down hill fairly quick. She's 92 so she's definitely had a long life. Since moving in with them about a week ago, she became for the most part immobile, very weak and uncomfortable. It was so hard to watch, we all love her! To add to a heavy heart from being away from home on Christmas, Grandma Clark passed away in her bed on Christmas morning.
The thought kept occurring to me throughout Christmas day that she went so long being without her husband, parents and siblings that she finally gets to have a "Christmas Morning" with them again but in heaven and she's healthy...how perfect that must be for her. I figured that one Christmas for me away from my home was okay because I know I'll see them again soon. Despite the loss, we had a great Christmas. We all hugged each other a little tighter that day, something I think we all needed, all for different reasons. Thank you Grandma Clark.
On a lighter note, I got some good gifts this year!
Smashbox lip gloss in Baby Pout- my fav!
Columbia Wind Groove Fleece (almost like VELVET!) Jacket
Simply Vera by Vera Wang Shoes
Really cute scarf, shirt and headband from my little sister
My purse that I got as an early Christmas present
this beautiful diamond necklace from my babe! Thank you so much, I love it and I LOVE YOU!
I hope everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas this year, it'll be here again before we know it!
