Project Life: A Dedication

Usually my Project Life posts consist of photos from the previous week. Once I get myself back into my normal routine, I will continue to do that.  

Today, I dedicate my Project Life post to an amazing woman,

Today would be Grandma Ina's 80th birthday.
She passed away last Monday.

Ina was the type of person that knew everyone. If you ever talked to her, you were her friend. 

I was fortunate enough to know this wonderful person. She was Mike's grandma; his mom's mother. She was a blessing in the lives of my daughters. 

To know Ina was to love her.

But, like I told Jaden, we will not be sad forever. Someday when we think of Grandma Ina, we will be happy because we were lucky enough to know her; to love her and be loved by her.

My girls now have an angel for a grandma. Jaden imagines her grandma playing hide-and-seek in the clouds. I'm so happy for the memories we have.

She will certainly be missed, "uh-huh uh-huh!"
