Our Guardian Angel

I woke up this morning and the first thing I thought about was my Grandma Hartley. Today would have been her birthday. With her passing, I have learned time does heal most things but there are some days that are just going to be hard no matter what. And today is one of those days. I wanted to do something special to remember her and celebrate her life but I just wasn't sure what that something should be. And then things just happened. My dear co-worker brought cupcakes into work that she just happened to bake for no reason last night and shared a few with me. Mix 93.3 played a song from the late 90's-I'll Be Missing You by P. Diddy and Faith Evans. Now I have always been a fan of this song but the day grandma passed away, it was playing on our drive to Carthage and outside our car window was the most amazing sunset I have ever witnessed. So, do I think it was coincidence that this song played this morning at 9:43; Not one bit-it was all Grandma and her way of letting us know that she is watching over us every step we take. We love you and miss you entirely too much but will forever be grateful for the memories you have given to us.

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
I'll be missing you
Thinkin of the days, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
I'll be missing you

It's kind of hard with you not around
Know you in heaven smilin down
Watchin us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Til the day we meet again
In my heart is where I'll keep you friend.
