The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

change of plans.

I got some sad news over the of my best friends, Jenna, lost her dear, sweet, wonderful grandfather. She sent me a message that said "death has truly lost its sting" and she could not be more right. I have such fond memories of her grandparents - almost as fond as those I have of mine! We have spend many hours hanging out with them at their lake house up at Lake Burton in North GA - I can remember hilarious games of Charades - no TV's allowed there! I can remember his fishing hat as he drove the pontoon boat loaded with giggling teenage girls - oh boy, is patience a virtue THAT man had!! Jenna and I have both been lucky to have grandfathers that were amazing, humble, patient men of God and I promise he will be missed by his sweet family and adopted grand-daughters alike!

I thought I would spend an entire week getting to sleep in my bed every night but life had other plans for me. I will leave tomorrow afternoon when I get off work and go spend the night with my sister in Atlanta. The funeral is Wednesday morning down in Griffin, GA. and I am trying to spare myself an early morning drive. My understanding boss told me I could take the day off Wednesday - knowing that I have to work Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights this week.
