Heaven is up there somewhere....

Today Evie and Lila came upstairs, and Evie was crying. I asked her what was wrong.

"The reason I'm crying is because I just really, really miss Grandma Kim."

Ouch. It doesn't happen as often as it used to, but the grief can still sneak up and take my breath away.

I sighed and said, "I know honey, I miss her too."

Lila nodded very mater-of-factly and said, "That is because she is very far away. Way, way up in outer space!"

Laughter after tears, always one of my favorite emotions.

Awww.. kids are the best. It still surprises me how aware they are. (And I was JUST telling Cory how I love a good laugh after a good cry.) I'm realizing that holidays are hard after losing someone you love.
