I am fighting an aweful sinus infection or head cold or something...my head feels like its going to explode! Eli went to "daycare" for a couple of hours today so I could go to my home town and help family w/ funeral arrangements. My Great Grandmother has not passed away yet, but she is not doing well. The end is near. Its sad but I think she is ready to go onto Heaven...so I'm happy about that. Me, my Aunt and my Cousin along w/ my Grandpa went to the funeral home and did what we could. There are still some things that need to be filled in that we couldn't answer...but all in all, most of it is taken care of. Wasn't exactly how I would have liked to spend my day, but I'm glad I could be of little help. Even though my Grandmother (my Great Grandmother's daughter) was quite rude to me today...I'm glad I went anyways. Plus...helping w/ someone else's funeral arrangements makes you start to think of your own. My Pap says..."I don't care what you all do w/ my body when I'm gone...that is really none of my business." I say..."I don't want it left up to my children to do...it shouldn't be their burden...to pick out cards, caskets, pallbearers etc." :) After some chatting w/ Pap, we thought maybe we should go ahead and plan our own funerals. Then there is the question...(b/c I like the idea of being cremated) what if one of my children or grandchildren need to see me for closure...so then I start to rethink it all, and its then I think...let them do what they want...I don't care. But I watched my cousin Cameron pick out his mother's casket...and that's hard on a child....hard at any age probably. It gave me plenty to think about. I'm glad my Grandma Great (as we call her) is still living and hasn't yet passed. Tomorrow night I will go to a Women's Retreat..."taste the goodness of the Lord." W/ chocolate being a big part of the event....I'm soooooo looking forward to it!
Ta ta for now; Micah
