Grandpa Joe

I have several posts to catch up on. Lots of stuff has been happening lately. I am super busy with my three cute kids, plus I watch two more cute kids five days a week. To top it off, my psychology research methods class is tons of work. Hopefully, I will finally get my bachelors degree in the fall (three classes to go)!!! So lets get started with the updates. On January 19, my wonderful Grandpa Joe passed away, he was my paternal grandfather. It was extremely sad to lose such a great man, but at the same time it was a relief. He had been declining for a while and I hope he has found some peace in heaven. I loved my Grandpa Joe very much and was always thankful for the amazing example he was to me. The most important thing that he taught me was to love others unconditionally. No matter what I did in life, I always knew that he loved me and was very proud of me. He would make sure to tell me this every time he saw me. He encouraged me to try and was always telling me how important it was for me to finish my college education. He once told me that he really loved that I decided to stay home to raise my kids, because it is not always the easiest or most popular thing to do. It is nice to know that someone recognizes and appreciates the things I do. I will miss talking to him and hearing his funny life stories. I will miss the love and support he gave me. I know he is watching over my family, and I know that one day I will get to see him again. Love ya Grandpa Joe:)
