Live For Today

by GettingFreedom on August 5, 2010

I disappeared again.

Sunday morning we received a call from my mother informing us that my beloved grandmother had lost her {second} battle with cancer.  Our hearts were empty.  My family and I loaded up and began the 8 hour trek to Iowa Monday afternoon.  We arrived at our destination shortly before 1am.

We remembered the life of an amazingly strong and loving woman.  She didn’t have much, but she was always giving.  As we were looking through some of her things, it was evident that she focused on the Finer Things in life.

While we know that her life on Earth is over, we all have a peace that she is whole again, and she is smiling with our Savior in Heaven.

My heart still has regret.

In true Phoebe-form, I procrastinated mailing pictures of Blake.  I just knew that tomorrow was coming, and I would do it then.

But it wasn’t, and I didn’t.

My grandmother-of-many never got to see her youngest grandbaby.

Live for today.  Not tomorrow.
