Sweet... & sad....

Today would have been my Papaw's 89th birthday....

I'm still in shock over the accident that was so stupid to end his life... I still dont get it... I still get so mad about how something so small can end a life... changing everyone else's life...

We celebrated my dad's birthday on Sunday (Post is coming of that great day with some pictures) & yes, his father's birthday is the day after his. 

So my niece Sophia, being the sweetest little heart ever, made a "card" for her Papaw (my dad) for her Granddad (my Papaw)

It says:   "I love dad (but when she read it to me, she said "granddad" I dont think she knew how to spell 'grand') ... I am sorry he died.... He was the best"

And she told me about the picture at the top, "That's me & Granddad holding hands"

Oh my goodness... is that the sweetest little thing from a 6 yr old heart...

& heart breaking all in one...


  1. Thank you. I am a bit scared too. I just did it through blogger for now, so I am stepping out of my comfort zone slowly

  2. She's old enough to remember him, so keep talking about him to help her memories thrive!

  3. RJ,
    How sweet is your neice!! Oh my!!! So sorry for your hurt today friend.

    I love you ~~ Dawn

  4. Kids can be so perceptive! What a bittersweet weekend. Hugs!!

  5. God love her little heart.

    So, so sweet.

    Hugs to you and your family, Rebecca.

  6. Six year old girls are the best at this kind of stuff. They should hire all little girls to write Hallmark cards.
    Did you miss me? I've been at the beach for a week. I'm back now so get ready.
    Your Friend, m.
