What a great post. I'm sorry for your grandfather; thank you for sharing your memories of him. *hugs*

I'm sorry about your grandfather. I'm glad that Bible verse spoke to you at just the right time.

Here's my favorite thing about your grandfather, Laura. Even in the throes of Alzheimers eating away at his brain, he could still play a wicked game of euchre! Your quoting of Ecclesiastes is echoing me from yesterday....it's what I emailed to my kids to tell them. And by the way, I KNOW your mammogram is going to be just fine. Big hug to you.

Yes, it's a lovely post. May these wonderful words give you comfort in this time of celebration and sadness. My condolances on the passing of your Grandfather, and prayers for good news from the mammogram. You ARE a treasure!

Congratulations on the new addition to the family, but I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Because of your big heart and dedication to others, you hold a special place in my own heart. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Ah Laura, you are in my daily prayers and it is clear that the good Lord has written this message of time upon your heart. Know that you've got so much support out here! Blessings upon your family in both your loss and the wonder of the new baby. Hugs, hugs and more hugs!

I've been thinking about you everyday. It's so wonderful to hear the peaceful sound of your 'voice'. You have dedicated so much of yourself to others and it's good to hear that others think of you, too. It was such a thrill to have you stop by again and say hello.

great post - puts things into perspective - the life cycle is always changing and so are we. Hugs to you.

I love the whole book of Ecclesiastes, especially the conclusion (12:13-14). It puts is all in perspective and makes sense of the meaningless things of this life.

Sorry to hear about your grandfather, its never easy even if we aren't as close! *hugs*
Praying that all is clear on your mammogram!
Take care!

What a post...perfectly timed. :)

I wasn't close with my Grandfather, but loved him dearly. He passed in 1996. I have a hard time eating popcorn without thinking of him. I know he was cheering the loudest in Heaven while the Tigers made their run for the penant recently, too.

I'm sorry for your lost, thankful for your joy and appreciate that you share it all with us.

Laura,
I am sorry to hear of the passing of your grandfather. I miss both my grandfather's (and grandmother's) a great deal, especially this time of year. I love the timing of the note from Vicki. And the scarf to wrap yourself up in is an added bonus.

I am sure one of the boxes in your house is the completed blanket we sent. A picture of the blanket is at the bottom of this page, if you want to see it. http://knitting4hope.googlepages.com/fall_blankets_progress

God Bless You and Yours

Thoughts with you tonight.

take care think positive
