Just fell in love...

with this amazing band!

Today, has been a very emotional day. As most of you know (if you follow me on twitter) that my grandfather lost his fight with pneumonia this morning. I'm still in disbelief and numb and I honestly have no idea what to say. I am a bit a lot angry with myself because I didn't visit with him more while he was in and out of the hospital, or even while he was at home. I can always use the excuse that my schedule was just so crazy, but that's what it is- an excuse. I hope he knows how much I love him. I hope that he can forgive me for being selfish and not taking the time to see him. He was a quiet man and didn't show much affection, but I know that he loved my sister and I very much and it pains me to think that he was alone this morning when he took his last breath. 
The next few days are going to be rough, whether it be due to the sadness of his loss or the gathering of the family, but I know I will and we will get through it. I will be strong like my mother and stay by her side during all of this. I believe she needs my sister and myself more than anyone else (even if she doesn't show it.)

Thanks again for all the kind words and prayers. You all are so amazing! I am so very blessed to have friends such as you!

Much love,
Danielle

P.S. I have been nominated for blog of the month over on For The Love Of Blogs! It is such an honor to be nominated along side so many other amazing blogs. I am asking that you all please take a moment to head over there and cast your vote. Vote for whoever you choose! (if its for me that'd be super sweet, but if not I am definitely okay with that also.)

Hey lady. I know I said something earlier, but I am still incredibly sorry. I've dealt with death a lot more than I'd like to over the past few years and I know it's tough.

I know he knows how much you care. Nothing would have ever been enough in your mind. So know that he appreciates everything you did for him.

Take care of yourself.

I'm here if you need someone to talk to. :]

Danielle,

I am so sorry to hear about your grandpa. I hadn't seen it on twitter, I've been asleep a majority of the day because of my meds.

I am praying for you to have peace of mind in getting through the funeral and everything. Have a lovely weekend!

P.S. I am the girl who creepily e-mailed you about gchat yesterday :D

Don't worry about not getting on gchat!

I didn't get on last night either, I took my pain meds and then watched some tv until I fell asleep!

I'm still working on recovery...hopefully we can chat soon.

ps I voted for you on FTLOB :)

So sorry to hear this, my heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

I've dealt with not having that chance in saying good-bye to someone in my life but, in my heart, I know they knew how much I loved them.

Keeping good thoughts, sending you hugs!

i'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa! that's so hard. i'm sure he knows you love him. don't let that get you down. we all focus on our last moments with those we love but it's not the last moments that count, it's all the moments before that. plus, you can take what you learned from this and apply it to the rest of your life. i hope you feel better soon.

Danielle,

I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. I said a prayer for you and your family. Keep your positive attitude and hold close all of the memories your shared. This song is beautiful and brings tears to my eyes. I can feel your emotions through it.

Sending my love to you Danielle.
