Today has been a day of mixed emotions. At 8:00 this morning I received a phone call that I have been dreading for years. My Nana, my closest link to my mother, passed away. She has been ready to go for a long time (she was 94 years old), she was in a lot of pain and my sisters and I hated seeing her suffer. I have so many great memories as she is one of the people I have loved the most. She taught me so much - most of all she taught me the importance of love and service.
I am excited for her that she finished her mission on this earth and hopefully now she will get to rest for a while. I know one day I will be reunited with her - for now I have another guardian angel.
When I found out I was pregnant I knew I would have a girl and I felt strongly the reason I was being sent a girl was to replace my Nana- I just didn't realize my Nana's death and the birth of my baby girl would be so close together. It's amazing how God works.
