That Good Ol' Lemonade Thing

Grandma O'Quilts found some pretty good gratitude today:
Cranky as a bear, I sat outside.  Soon an unbelievable balmy breeze came by.
Dylan said it was Granddaddy blowing kisses....Peace sustained me....!!
Stephanie has pneumonia too...Because of that despair, my DIL came an extra day.
Tonight, she did homework, made dinner, made cookies, cheered me up and did laundry.
All without being asked...sooo great!!
I am missing the going away party tomorrow night. No babysitter.
Alas...that got me going sewing...YES!!!
A party means potholder time.
Sewing makes everything better..that...along with cookies.
 I cannot decide whether or not a gift potholder needs a hanger???
Because Zoe and Tigger are in a snit, Stitch found love somewhere else!!
Not to be left out, Zoe claimed a spot with Dylan.
Tigger is outside pouting...sorry Evan...
Grandma O'Quilts with her own treat...using Riviera ware....to its potential!!
Yeah, Grandma..
Tonight the wave crests in a happier spot.
It is amazing how one can survive, without a lifeboat, on the turbulent seas.

I am smiling at your comparison of the grief journey and it's sea-like waves, because that's the first way I always try to explain to someone who hasn't tasted it fully yet. And you never know when you're laying on the sand with your eyes closed soaking up the warmth of the sun when a wave might sneak up real high on the shore and wash over you unexpectedly and there we are, a mass of tears again ~ ~ without any warning!!! I'm so pleased your DIL is pitching in so well. What a miracle for all of you. Blessings to each of you ~ ~ and may Stephanie soon be well!

That is such a beautiful thing for Dylan to say. He's right too. Gorgeous photos of the cats and children. Lovely to see Stitch fitting in so well.
