Sunny Saturday

Today was such a pretty, sunny day. I woke up early this morning and got Axle all taken care of and headed off to Jamestown for a family day. I'm so glad I went. It was so good to see some of my family that I don't get to see that often. We had a fun day just relaxing at Uncle Lanny and Uncle Johnny's. And of course, we ate :-)
I had every intention of going to the cemetery to "visit" my Aunt Zelma. I didn't make it there. The hurt is still just as great as it was back when she first went to heaven. It's been three years. I haven't been back to her gravesite since the day she was laid to rest there. I know in my heart that it's just a headstone there, that she's watching over me from above, but I feel like I should go. But, as I was driving back home, I realized that I don't have to go to her grave to visit her or to talk to her. I can talk to her whenever and wherever. And that's what I did. I miss her. I miss her more than anyone will ever truly comprhend. I don't think some people realize just how much of an impact she made on my life.
Tomorrow is a busy day for me. Tonia and Dennis and Davy (aunt, uncle, and baby cousin) are visiting in Knoxville tonight and tomorrow, and tomorrow we are going to the zoo. I can't wait to just spend some time with Davy. I miss that special little baby and hate that I'm missing him growing up. Expect lots of pictures from the zoo!
