Hello, Weekend...

My Grandma and I...(January 28, 1925-September 26, 2011)

This week has been very difficult, dealing with a loss is never easy. I'm resting on God's promise and staying strong. Praying for my Grandma's peace, she is truly missed and will forever be my HERO. Have a blessed weekend beautiful people!
