Good News & Sad News

Standard

The good news is that we just got back from another wonderful vacation. This time we spent a week camping with my family on the shores of Lake Ontario. 16 adults, 5 kids, lots of food, drinks, sunshine, time at the beach and campfires. It was absolutely wonderful.

The very sad news is that the Hub’s grandfather passed away the day after we returned. Gramps was more of a grandfather to me then any other man I know- he was kind and sweet and funny and fiercely devoted to his family.  But he wasn’t perfect; he was too darn stubborn and proud to be perfect- a fact that we have all laughed and complained about over the years.

Gramp’s passing wasn’t a surprise- he’s been ill for a very long time. And in many ways, it’s a blessing for him. Gramps believed in God and Heaven and I know that faith gave him peace at the end. So for his sake, I’m happy and relieved that he can finally feel well again in Heaven. But for our sake, I’m beyond sad.  His death is a huge loss to our family that will be felt for a long, long time.
