A Funeral is NOT a bad way to start 2012

My Grandmom took a turn for the worse on new year's day, and she passed away late night on Jan 2nd. Last week was really tough with visitation Thursday, funeral Friday, and then graveside service out of town on Saturday. Got some much needed extra sleep most of the day on Sunday. Yesterday I played catch up on social networking, and finished off the day working on our tax returns. Needless to say, its been one non-stop ride since Dec 15th with preparing for Christmas, celebrating with all sides of the family, my daughter's visit from college, meeting her 1st serious boyfriend and his 7 day stay with us, New Years, etc etc. I KNOW 2012 will be the best year ever with the completion and publication of my first book!! So the rough start is no downer to me. Grandmom lived a full life--teacher for 30+ years to 5th and 6th grade students, wife and mother, survived breast cancer and a mastectomy, buried her husband (Granddad) nearly 20 yrs ago, survived deep brain surgery for Parkinson's Disease, and buried her eldest son only last year. She was a gracious, poised, classy woman whose name was Golden Rose.
You would not believe how many roses were all over the church as we celebrated her life together at the funeral and graveside service. So many of her students came and so our family was reassured that her positive contributions will be felt for many generations to come. That catches you all up on my life!
