Day 305, November 11
"Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop". ~Anonymous
This weekend has been a roller coaster of emotions as Larry and I returned to Utah for the first time since my sister's death. The reason for being here--to see a new granddaughter--is a cause for joy. There was much smiling. There were no kisses, unfortunately, because Julie Nadean was born a month early and had to be protected from any possible infection. But I did get to hold her, to tell her that Grandma loved her and would always love her. And then there were teardrops as I saw familiar places where Carla and I used to go.
That pretty well describes life, doesn't it--smiles, kissing (even in my dreams), and teardrops.
Joy for today: having reasons to smile, dreams of kissing, memories with teardrops.
