last week, i took a last-minute trip to utah for my grandfather's funeral. it was such a mix of emotions felt through the week as we celebrated the life of my sweet grandfather and welcomed the birth of my new nephew! i never imagined in my wildest dreams i would be able to be with my sister the week she gave birth. what a champ she is and a what a GORGEOUS baby she had. oh sawyer, you stole my heart!
even at such a sad time, i feel so blessed. blessed to have the ability to fly out with a day's notice. blessed to see my family. blessed to celebrate my sweet grandfather. blessed to know i will be with him again. blessed to see my baby sister as a strong, loving mother. and very blessed that my in-laws were visiting us in london and could watch harper on such short notice. we all experience trials but there are definite blessings to be found within them.
