Yesterday was Karen's service. (Long time friend and grandmother to two of my granddaughters) I have to admit that I was really anxious about the service. I was worried about my granddaughters and my daughter in law. The service was nice and the worship leader described Karen to a T. The high school choir from the school where she taught sang. They sang a song about sunshine. While Karen's body was not at the service, she was. At the end of the song all of a sudden the sun came in from a back window. I'm not sure how many people saw it. I sure did. I believe in signs and felt that this was a sign from God that Karen was okay and in a great place.
My little granddaughters looked so pretty. Cute dresses and their hair fixed so nice. Goose had on pearls and K. Bug had bracelets that I think were from their grandmother. Their faces were red and they shed a few tears. But they were so sweet talking to everyone. And their were lots of people.
Our other son and his family sat with us as did the mom of my surrogate grands. I was their nanny and we are not related by blood but they are family.
After the service we went from the church to the school where the first graders were having a spring concert. Mabel sang and danced and had a small speaking part. What a way to end the day. But it didn't end there. We all went out to eat at the village Mexican restaurant. Today is my second's son's birthday. We had a few people that joked about how we were over dressed. Like Grampy and Daddy in suits at the concert.
I am hoping that my daughter in law will be able to find some peace down the road. She needs rest.
Hoping you are finding the rainbows that God send to you.
