Laid my Grandfather to rest Saturday, which is never easy. Losing my maternal grandfather during the same month of the 1st anniversary of my paternal grandfather, has also been incredibly trying.
Saturday, my grandfather's dying wish was have me sing at his funeral. Singing while sad can be incredibly hard for expressively honest singers (as, it is difficult to hide your true emotions when you sing and you risk crying during your performance). Though, I didn't know how it would turn out or if I'd be strong enough, it turned out rather well and I was able to make it through. Even in his death, he still encouraged me to use my God-given gift. ❤
Now that my grandfather has been laid to rest and has gone to glory, I am reminded of his heart, his resilient energy and his legacy of doing his best to never give up. He ALWAYS tried to make the best of a situation. And he always tried to find a way to bring everyone together to "make it work". Though I still feel a void, that I have struggled to adequately express, for days now - I am grateful for the lessons he taught me and his unwavering love. I am reminded to continue to use my gift of music through song.
I love you dearly Granddaddy & I look forward to the day I see you again in heaven💕
