This has been a difficult week, full of grief and tears, but also the drawing together of family and the sharing of memories that evoke smiles and laughter despite the underlying sadness. My husband’s grandmother, his “Na,” passed away Sunday evening. She wasn’t sick, but we were expecting this…she had been slowly fading away over the past month.
Na lived an amazing, fulfilling life — a life rich in family and friendship, love and laughter. I’m so grateful to have known her, to have become part of her family, and will carry her memory in my heart for as long as I live.
God bless you, Na. We love you and miss you!
Na and Sean — Christmas Day, 2009
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

I’ve been on a blogging break since Na’s passing this weekend, and will be away from the computer for the rest of the week in order to spend this time with my husband’s family. I haven’t forgotten about announcing who the Traveling Shoes will visit next, and will post the winner this weekend. Thank you for your patience & understanding.
