Today was the Mass and celebration of Titi's life~ it was a beautiful service and than we had a lovely luncheon at my cousin's home in her honor. The girls and I my cousin's and Titi Sylvia were all there cooking, laughing and telling stories all afternoon. We had a wonderful time! The girls learned from their cousin how to cook Titi Eva's rice and gandules. Making memories~ the kids are now over keeping Titi Sylvia company. We took her to her radiation appointment this afternoon and than she took us out for burgers. I am now trying to enjoy the quiet after a whirlwind of the past two weeks....sitting here reflecting over all that has happened and how God has given me the strength that I have needed daily. Thankful for time spent wisely on relationships~ all the stuff that we collect along the way can never take the place of the relationships with family and friends and all the memories made along the way. I am so blessed that God has allowed me to have such wonderful examples of loved ones in my life that drew their strength and faith from the one who will never leave us or forsake us~ so on those days when I am running on empty...when I feel like I just can't keep keeping on; I just remember what they told me...trust in the Lord~ He knows what we need and he will provide.
