So just knowing that I made these goals for myself and I have not achieved them is killing me. I don't know if I will get to every one but I don't know that I won't. So every once in a while, you might check in and see some progress. Maybe.
10. Take my family to my grandmother's grave.
I did this on Memorial Day and it was so special. I shared so many stories and memories of my grandmother. I thought I might make me sad at the thought of missing so many things with my grandmother, mostly sad at the thought that she never got to meet my husband or my children. But instead, I found myself filled with joy! Standing there, sharing stories of her and laughing with my children was something I won't soon forget. I don't know if I will go back again, I know in my heart, she isn't there. She is definitely smiling down at us and probably always has been.
