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!
