Middle School, Football, and Cancer

Today was a day full of mixed emotions, lets see...my baby girl went off to Middle School today, embarking on a new chapter of her life. With the pride and excitement I feel, it's hard not to feel a twinge of sadness watching her become less and less of a baby every day.

My middle one had his first foot ball game today, it wasn't an actual game per say, but what they call a scrimmage just 2 teams playing against each other, but nothing that actually counts on the roster. I was very proud of him, unlike what he's been showing in practice he actually did good out there. If they were keeping score I'm pretty sure his team would have lost, but that's OK, because he REALLY tried, and that's what's important to me.

Then on a crappy note, we got the test results back and my Grandma has breast cancer. I'm obviously devastated by the news, but hopeful that we caught it early and MAYBE there's some hope in it, although I know she will not doing anything very aggressive. My Grandma is a wonderful woman, she is the strongest Christian I know, she is my hope and inspiration in life, she's so smart and strong and just too incredible to describe. I'm sure God can not wait to have her home with Him but I'm selfish, and there's not a whole lot of great people like that in my life, and I really want to hold on to the ones I have. So anyway that was my day with its ups and it's downs...it sure was one heck of a day!
