Yesterday we had a great time at my Oma’s surprise party. She was shocked. This morning when we went to her house to say goodbye, she was still in a state of shock.
I have to admit…leaving was really, really tough. I left with my toes and fingers dragging in the dirt.
This weekend was the first time that I have been in grandparents’ house since my grandfather passed five years ago. Today, I saw a look in my Oma’s eyes that I saw five years ago when I last saw my Opa. She said goodbye to my father, and he said, “Ma, I’ll see you again.” She gave him a look…a look that is not explicable unless you see it. It took everything in me not to cry like a baby when I said goodbye.
Here is Boyz II Men in honor of my day.
I saw the video…in its entirety. Couldn’t post it.
