It's interesting how God works sometimes. I have been avoiding this day all month. Six years ago today I was off work. It was the day that my grandmother passed. It is still so clear in my head. The last visit at the hospital, the last words she said to me, the call from my cousin.
We buried Granny on Valentine's Day and it has forever changed how I view that day. It's not about candy, cards, etc. Instead it is family time. It's a time for reflection. It's a time to be festive. I probably didn't want a snow day today because I wanted to stay busy, hoping that less tears would drop.
But God has a plan that is bigger than mine. I guess in hindsight I needed today to let the tears drop freely.
