Saying Goodbye

We've spent the last two weeks traveling back and forth to Nashville because Shane's sweet Memaw went to heaven to be with Jesus. Her memorial service was so beautiful. She was such a lovely lady that loved the Lord and her life reflected that to all those around her. It was bittersweet as we miss her, but knowing she's with her honey Webb and no longer in pain was amazing. As they lowered her casket into the ground I thought that I would be upset (I've never experienced that before), but it didn't bother me at all. It wasn't her. I knew where she was and was actually smiling inside thinking that it was almost funny that her body was in the ground, but her--the real her--was in the presence of God. That's pretty amazing. (And why is at funerals you want to giggle at the most reverent times?)
She was an avid quilter and we were so blessed to receive quilts from her that she had made over the years when our kiddos were born. Now as I tuck them in at night, surrounded by the hours her hands spent with the needle, made from her very own dresses- I pray her sweet great-grandbabies continue her legacy....
