Have a rockin Mon+day

I'm ready for a good day! Who's with me?!

My Aunt's memorial was this pass weekend. Oh friends it was tough. I was able to participate in the service by reading four pieces that had been written for her. It was tough, but I was praying the entire time asking God to strengthen me and not lose it while up there. It was such a joy to hear people laughing during some of the lighthearted parts where we described her vibrant personality. And it hit me, and I was filled with joy at  how alike we really are. And I was also moved to tears to read the poem that her students had written in her honor. The time I was able to spend with my family was lovely and so many pictures were taken to reserve the sweet moments.

And today friends, after the emotional weekend, I am just ready to freakin' rock this day's face off! Perhaps cocktails with friends after work, a little mani-pedi, and definitely some Starbucks in the very near future. Oh yes, I'm ready for an awesome day!

  1. That's the spirit! I'm sorry to hear about your aunt, but God is good - he gives us the strength to celebrate the lives he has blessed us with even as we mourn the passing of those we love. Have a fabulous Monday!!!! :)

  2. What a privilege to be able to read pieces that were written for your aunt and to know that that the two of you are alot alike. A part of her lives on in you in a way. I feel so honored that you came and shared in my celebration after that, although I'm sure you were emotionally spent. You mean alot to me. I hope you know that. :)
