This weekend was, in many ways, just awful. Not the end of the world awful, but you know, the other kind.
I basically was sick with almost every non-hospital-stay sickness, was awake from 1 a.m.-6 a.m. Saturday morning, had a migraine, Gabe had headaches off & on, and then the worst part- his grandfather passed away yesterday morning. We are glad that he is not suffering anymore, but he will be missed.
In the midst of this stuff, my sister called me yesterday when I only had a minute to talk & asked if we could facetime. Of course I found about 7 extra minutes because that meant I got to see my squirmy little niece on her seven month birthday(after she spent 10 hours in the car, no less!), and I was (and still am) missing her cute face. Not only did I get to see her, but she waved and smiled and just warmed my heart up. It was the perfect medicine for my sad & tired heart and eyes.
