Hard Time

I suppose I should have a post with an explanation.  I haven't been writing lately because I've been having a hard time.  A really hard time.  My grandfather, who has been struggling with luekemia for the past year has reached the final stages of his battle.  His body has begun rejecting donor blood, and yesterday, he received his last ever blood transfusion.  There is nothing that can be done and it is just a matter of time until he goes home to heaven.  

We've all known this time was coming, but somehow that doesn't make it any easier.  Even though I know my grandpa is ready to go to heaven, I'm not ready to be left behind. I've never been one that handles death very well, but the idea of possibly being out of the country when my family needs me most is overwhelmingly painful.  

If you are a praying person, please pray for my grandpa and grandma.  Please lift up our family in prayer.  We could certainly use a little extra grace at this moment.  

Thank you and God bless you.
