Although the weather was beautiful, it was a hard weekend for Tracy and I. Our oldest daughter and her husband have been contemplating moving to Oregon to be closer to his family and to pursue new career/schooling opportunities. Stephanie has been hinting around that they would be moving, but she told us Saturday that they have decided to move at the end of May.
Tracy and I certainly understand their need to build their own life and future, but neither of them have jobs and will be new to the community, which greatly concerns us. May will definitely be a challenging month as they prepare to move and we attempt to get comfortable with the idea.
If that wasn't challenging enough, we received a call this morning saying that Tracy's 97 year old grandmother was not doing well and was not expected to live through the day. After church, we headed out to be with her and Tracy's parents. At about 9:30pm this evening, we received a call that she had passed away.
Although she had a strong faith, lived a great life and is certainly in a much better place now, it is still difficult to say goodbye and let go.
We will spend the day with Tracy's family tomorrow and although it will be sad, we will be there to support one another the way that granny would have wanted us to.
Sorry for the downer post today, but that is how this weekend turned out. Hopefully the coming week will be better!
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say.
