Today is the two year anniversary of my beloved grandpa, better known as "Captain"'s death. It's nuts! The funeral seems like it took place a lifetime ago, but I feel like I just talked to him and joked with him yesterday. What a funny thing time is! Last night, I was on the phone with my mom, who's still in Florida until tomorrow, and it hit me. Two years ago yesterday, at around the same time I was on the phone with my mom yesterday, I was talking to my mom on the phone in the SAME place I was last night. Strange how some things come full circle, isn't it?
I remember vising him in ICU, even though I was a year too young to be allowed in. I told him how much I missed his ice cream sundaes and that as soon as he cam home, he was going to make me a HUGE one, with all the works. He gave me his conniving smile and began to do these weird motions with his hands.
He was making me an sundae. An invisible ice cream sundae
I remember trying not to cry as I told him it was the best sundae I had ever tasted. And it really was.
Anyway, this is for you Captain. I miss you and can't wait to see you again one day! xoxox
That lovely picture is a picture of my gorgeous family when Captain was in the hospital. This was taken around Christmas '06. Captain is in the chair on the way left, and I'm in the middle with the pink shirt. :)
My Prince will come and till then, my heart is saved for him. Put this picture (or another one of Arwen) on your blog if you agree.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the Bella Colleen, the baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion. Amen

What is Love?
"Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy, it does not boast, It is not proud, It is not rude, It is not self-seeking, It is not easily angered, It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
"When we were little, we kept close to our mother in a dark alley or if dogs barked at us. Now, when we feel temptations of the flesh, we should run to the side of our Mother in Heaven, by realizing how she is to us, and by means of aspirations. She will defend us and lead us to the light."
My name is Katie. My friends and family mean the world to me. I would honestly do anything for them. I also know they'd do anything for me. I love to read, watch movies, listen to music, knit, crochet, text (hehehe), pray, and do lots of other stuff. I'm a devout Catholic and I LOVE GOD WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL! HE IS AMAZING! I'm also homeschooled... yeah. Feel free to tell people to read my blog, or to comment, or to email me. :)
