Sad and Happy Day.

So today was an emotional day. This morning I found out that my dear cousin lost her fight against breast cancer. She was only 43 years young and left behind loving parents that were celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary today.  We knew she was loosing the battle but it is still hard to say good-bye.  I know she is in a better place, no more suffering, no more pain, and she is back with her creator.  I love you Ate Tiche may your soul rest in peace.

After making many phone calls to my parents, brother and my aunt and uncle and the other family members. I was on the phone almost all day.  I have a large extended family. My mom is from a family of 7 and my father a family of 9. So talking to aunts, uncles, cousins and more cousins I was an emotional wreak.  But I do have to say considering we are spread all over the world I am impressed with how truly close we all are with one another.  I love my family!

So after most of my day being spent on the phone crying I was glad to hear that my true and dearest friends in Chicago were getting together for a CROP night.  So in good spirits I said "hey skype me in and we can crop together like the old times". We was soo much fun talking and seeing one another. It was like I was in the room with them.  Look here is a snapshot picture I took of them while we were on skype.

Amy and Marie

I love these girls so much. They were there when I had my first child. I was in both of their weddings. (For Amy's wedding I had just had given birth to Drew 2 weeks before the wedding. Marie's wedding was last year, we were out of our house for two weeks before the wedding and we left Chicago the day after the wedding.)  I was there to see Amy's first born.  We have been through thick and thin with each other, the good times and the bad.  To think of it, I was their boss at Archiver's.  I hired both of them! Ha!   I am so glad fate brought us together. I love and miss them dearly.  We are going to "skype crop" together soon.  Amy now lives in North Carolina , Marie is in Illinois and I am in Utah and we can still crop together like the good old days.  And like the good old days...I GOT NOTHING DONE.

Today started out sad and my friends were there to lift my spirits up.  I am grateful for my family and friends.
