Sad.


I got another one of those dreaded phone calls this afternoon, that my Grandma Clark was coming to the end of her life, and a second call a couple of hours later to tell me that she had passed away. I just feel heavy and sad.

I am still in the Outer Banks, trying to keep warm in a house full of people I barely know, and trying to hold my sadness inside until we can leave tomorrow and go home.

My dad and all of our family could use your prayers and good thoughts right now. Even when you're expecting it, it's still so hard when the end finally comes. I was sitting on the dock watching the waves and thinking of her right around the time she passed away in Missouri...I hope she felt my love.
