Yesterday our family spent the evening at St. James Cathedral in Seattle with my grandparents. My grandpa (my dad's dad) is getting baptized at the Easter Vigil in March. My grandpa is one of the most honorable, generous and kind people walking the planet today. He tenderly cared for my dad, and sat long hours in the hospital with us last year when Dad was sick. My dad would have loved to be with us as we walked with Grandpa to meet the bishop and sign his name in the Book of Life. I was overwhelmed with mixed emotions of joy and sorrow, thinking how overjoyed my dad would have been and how sad I was that he was not physically there with us. I am thankful for my family and each precious moment we have together. Taking hold of each day we live out the gift of everyday life.
