After Mima went into the sky, dad stayed home from work for a whole week.
The first thing we did was to get to where we could look out over the city and mountains that Mima loved so much.
Then we drove up to the big mountains and went on beautiful hikes.
Some hikes I slept through.
Some hikes had water shooting out of rocks.
(The water was loud. It woke me up.)
And some hikes were very short with beautiful views.
It was a good week together as a family, even though we were sad.
There is still so much beauty in the midst of sadness.
I had a wonderful Mima.
I will miss you Mima. I know that you are in the sky with Jesus. I tell mom not to cry because I know you are not in pain and that you are happy. Thanks for being such a great Mima.
(A note from Rowan’s editor- Rowan’s grandmother passed away on May 12th after a nearly four year battle with cancer. We are thankful for the two and a half years she and Rowan had together. Thanks for following, Rowan Readers.)
Happy Mother’s Day to my mom! I got her a special present!…………..
Yes. Snow on Mother’s Day!
Mom wasn’t super pleased with my gift. I also don’t think she believed that I made the snow just for her.
Well… okay. I didn’t technically make the snow. Whoever did is a genius, though.
Mom, I think you are as special as a snow storm in May. Happy Mother’s Day!
Sometimes I feel so grown up.
I can dress myself…
(Or at least pick out my own outfits…)
I can push my own shopping cart.
I can do Aunter Gwendie’s makeup.
And I can brush my own teeth.
Growing up is fun.
