2011 Gratitude Challenge Day 5

Today I am thankful for the short time that I knew Alla.  She was a very special lady and my family will miss her.   Though we only met her two years ago, she touched our hearts.   Memory Eternal, Alla!

I am also thankful for funerals.  Alla’s funeral was this morning.  We had a chance to say good-bye to Alla.  I must have looked strange with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face.  Supergirl didn’t quite understand what was going on, she would alternate between being sad “I’m going to miss Alla.”  and being absolutely ecstatic because her godmother was there.  We hadn’t seen her godmother in a long time.  It warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face to see my daughter so happy.

It’s been a sad day and a very happy day.  Thankful to spend some extra time with a wonderful friend and thankful we had the opportunity to say one last good bye here on earth to a dear older lady.

What are you thankful for today?  Come join Brenda at Garden of Learning for her 2011 Gratitude Challenge.


  1. May her Memory be Eternal. It was such a blessing to see your girls' Godmother, I agree.
    There's a joyousness to the sorrow at a funeral, especially of one who lived so well, and so long, and with so much love and faith as Alla did.
