I want to be STRONG...not just physically but emotionally. I know
that working towards improving my body and mind will help me to create
happiness in my life and the life of my family. Don't they always
say....a happy mom makes a happy family!!
As I was driving home from work last night, I don't know exactly why, but I was feeling very emotional!! I should have been thrilled because it was my last day of work before the baby comes (3 weeks from today and I'll have the c-section). I was excited to be done with work, but was feeling a need to focus on important things in my life. I have been reading a book about opening your heart to other people which in turns help you to have a closer relationship with God. I've been trying that, maybe that is why I was more emotional. Anyways, I got thinking about my "Poppa". It has been 2 1/2 months since his passing and I was really missing him. He was really such a wonderful man. I love this picture. It is of me with my Nana and Poppa in Disneyland when I was 2 or 3 years old. I love this picture. We all look so happy. I am not sure how they were happy while hanging out at Disneyland with a 2 year old, but it must have been okay. These are just some other pictures that I like. I really feel grateful to have had my grandpa such a huge part of my life. He was a great example and a I appreciate that. I always felt bad that he had to go through his battle with Parkinson's, but he never complained. I feel sometimes like I am kind of wimpy and get cranky, but I was reminded of his positive attitude with life.
I guess I just wanted to remember my Poppa today. I miss him alot and I am so impressed with the strength that my Nana has. She is continuing to live life, as Poppa would have wanted, and continues to be strong and graceful. Poppa...I love and miss you and I am grateful that my girls were able to know you!!
