Day 49: Birthday in the Land of My Birth

February 18, 2012: A random fact about me is that I was born in Fargo, ND, but never lived there.  Today I flew into Fargo to be with my family on my birthday because my grandma is dying.  It was her birthday yesterday, so I told her when I arrived in her hospital room that since I didn’t make it for her birthday, I came to see her on mine.  Her face lit up and a big grin forced it’s way through the struggle for breath.  She grabbed my hands, pulled me closed and kissed my cheek.  What a precious two hours I had with her before she fell into a deep, restful sleep.

Another beautiful part of the day was taking a walk with my dad in the sunshine and playing in the snow!
