What to talk about......

Well its been over a week since my last blog...so many things to talk about...my trip went well......I started my bbq on fire.......I am ready to kill my cat.....

but there is one thing that sticks out in my mind.

Today I got a chance to read through some of my grama's diaries. She kept them all her life. We have found some as early as the 1930's and they went up until she died a year ago in May.
She was a wonderful grama.
First I found the year my father and his twin were born. That was cool. I started to think back to different dates and different events in my family....their first grandchild...my brother Randy. I found each of the dates that my siblings were born....how everyone thought my brother Jeff wouldn't make it...and he did....I found the day I was born, and for five days after, she referred to me as the baby...finally on the fifth day...my name appeared.
I found the day that we moved away to Ontario...it seemed a world away to her....she would write about how empty the house was or how her heart ached somedays. The days that were especially hard....those were the days that she always thanked God for something...or she would write a verse, or claim a promise, or write the title of a hymn that would speak volumes...
Sometimes I wonder what legacy means....how long it lasts.....and for Grama, it seems that it will last forever.

"My Jesus I love thee, I know thou art mine."
