My Beautiful Grandma Tillie

Well, I know, as usual it has been a great while since I have posted. This last month was a great month. My beloved Grandma Tillie made the trek (by plane, but not easy when you are 87) from Utah to Texas to visit us. This last month was really special for all of us. Grandma is so fun and upbeat, she always keeps us laughing and was an absolute joy to have. I told her a million times that I wanted to keep her forever, but Provo is where her heart is. I will treasure the time my kids and I had to spend with her. Jack cried for three days after she left, and it goes without saying that I was a puddle of tears right along side him! Grandma played tireless games of peek-a-boo with Eliza. Something I just don't have the patience to do these days. She layed on the floor and played card games with Jack. She helped me fold laundry and do dishes, and kept my spirits high on the long days when Marcus stayed late at the hospital. She sat in the car with the kids while I ran in to do those annoying 1 minute errands that end up being 20 minutes when you have to drag both kids in every stop (I know all you moms know that is a huge favor!) She told me stories, she gave me advice, and she made me feel like a million dollars. I couldn't love her more. She is such a blessing in my life, and I am so glad and proud to call this beautiful lady my grandmother.
