I'm back from my Grandmother's funeral in Ohio, and I'm not quite up to much posting yet. I know I will be, but at the moment I'm still trying to find my footing. Many good things happened while I was back at the "home place," but that can wait for my heart to catch up.

For now, this photo was one I took just minutes after I got the call about Grandma's passing. I was standing in the kitchen folded in my husband's arms crying rivers on his shirt when the sky seemed to get brighter. That day was a dark stormy day, as you can see... but suddenly the clouds parted and opened up for about 5 minutes to let the sun absolutely flood through. It was amazing and took both of us totally by surprise.

To me... it was like my Grandma was stopping by to let me know that even though I will miss her, all is well. I'd like to think its the shape of an angel, but my husband thinks its a butterfly. Either way, to me, it was a sign. She is ok. I will be too. Time is on my side.
