I Owe You All A Huge Thank You

DSC_0172

I really don’t know what to write except a huge thank you to everyone who sent me kind words and for those of you who read and supported my last post.  Your condolences and support mean so much to me.  It’s so comforting to know that people care and have been reaching out to me.  Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

The flowers are the ones I took home after the memorial service.  My mom, grandpa, and uncle took home moments and gifts and they told the grandkids to take home some of the many beautiful flowers sent to us from friends and family.  I am planning on drying at least one of the roses and pressing a few other flowers.  I will keep the ribbon too.

It’s important to keep something of the ones we loved who’ve passed.  I think so anyway.

The memorial service was beautiful and just what my grandma would’ve wanted.  Grandpa summed it up just right when he said that grandma would not  believe that all those people came for her.  She was humble and sweet like that.  My cousins, siblings, and I had a good time gathering around, eating the finger foods, and sharing some of the funny stories and memories we have of grandma.  She was just an awesome, awesome person and she will be dearly missed.

On another, happier note, here’s my latest creation.  It’s a large, gray Totoro.  I got the pattern from revelry.com and the creator is the same as that of the dragon and the small blue Totoro I made earlier.  Here name is Lucy Ravenscar. Her patterns are well-constructed and I love them. Here’s my gray Totoro:

I love posing Chester with my creations.  He doesn’t ever know what to do about it 🙂

  1. Totally love Totoro. Gets me on a very deep level and makes me cry with joy every time I watch it. I used to live in Japan and there is something very magical about the rural environment. Spirits abound. Shall we dedicate this Totoro to your Grandma ?xxx

  2. Hi Megan, so sorry to hear about the passing of your grandma. My deepest sympathy and prayers to you and yours. I’ve been away for a bit, had to take a break and attempt to get my act together, just something I have to do from time to time, but I just now saw this post about your grandma and wanted to tell you I’m sorry for your loss.
    Chester and your latest creation are both looking really very cute. Have a nice night.
    HUGS,
    Tammy

      1. 🙂 Not doing so well at the moment. Spent 6 hours in the ER yesterday and now I have Colitis, which is very painful. And, all my GI doctor can say is, “I don’t know what to do.” It’s going to be a very long weekend. I sure hope you are doing “well.” Have a great weekend, my friend. Give Chester a big hug from Wild Thang. LOL 🙂

      2. I’m so sorry to hear that 😦 I hope your doctor can figure out something to do and that you start getting/feeling better. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll be thinking of you.

      3. Thank you, Megan. Still just busy being sick. Probably going to be getting another feeding tube in the very near future. It was discussed at my last appointment with my GI doctor. He wanted me to try some different nausea medication for one week and call and let him know if it was helping, so I could eat, but I’m not that lucky. I called him yesterday and he was supposed to call me back today, but didn’t. I called late this afternoon and was told he’ll call me tomorrow. I sure hope you and Chester are doing well, my friend.:)

  3. I missed out on your last post, but I just read it. I am sorry for your loss. I lost my mom last year and I know that dull pain. May the Lord comfort you.
    I also wish to comment on your “creation” by saying that in the Swahili language ‘Totoro’ means “deepest darkness”. A product of the Tower of Babel, no doubt.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. My condolences on the loss of your mother. It’s very difficult I know. I had no idea that Totoro meant that in Swahili, but that’s quite beautiful. Thank you for sharing that with me.

  4. Pressing flowers is a fun thing to do when you have flowers from different family functions (like weddings and funerals). I like to press them and let them dry in an old book of poetry that my mother gave me.

    And I’m glad that you were able to have a good time seeing everyone even if it wasn’t under the best circumstances.

    1. Thank you 🙂 It’s always good to be with family and they’re the only ones who can really know what it feels like to lose that particular person. The pressed flowers turned out beautifully. Any idea on what to do with them?
