A Loss.

We had a long day. Our family experienced a loss last week, and we gathered at a beautiful church to bid farewell to a wonderful man, my grandfather-in-law.

How many people are lucky enough to not only have a grandfather-in-law, but one that is as wonderful as sunshine? I've been truly blessed in the family that I married in to, you couldn't hand pick a more fabulous group of people. I've always felt welcomed and comfortable from the moment my then-future husband introduced me, and we've enjoyed several wonderful afternoons in their home since.

He will be missed- his wife, a study in grace and elegance as she greeted each fellow mourner. I can only hope one day to have an eighth of her composure. She is truly a remarkable lady.

I've been blessed to know them both, to know their wonderful family.

Sorry for your loss.

Some day I think I may land a book deal about my ex-inlaws, they were that bad.
