We are back from Colorado, back from visiting family, back from saying goodbye to my grandmother, the dearest, sweetest, most magical ray of sunshine to have graced all of our lives. In spite of the sad circumstance under which we gathered, despite the sorrow of her departure from this life, the woe of separation, we spent the weekend in celebration of her life, and the days were joyous and filled with love and warmth.
I'll probably (maybe) post more later, but for now, I will leave you with this:
When we got back from our trip to the grave, and then the church, there was a rainbow in the western skies, right over the mountains, and though it was fading quickly, it was glorious.
Thank you, Margaret Ellen Taylor, for everything. I'll see you in the funny pages.
