This Christmas was nothing like we had expected. We had planned on doing a ton of wedding planning, fun Christmas-y activities & outings, as well as just relaxing and being together. But everything changed when my grandpa got really sick. We spent most of the month of December in my grandparents house where my grandpa was receiving care. The whole family was together and although it wasn’t the most “joyful” Christmas, I think it may have been the most special. He passed away in his own home on December 28, surrounded by his children singing hymns and reading Bible verses to him. We had a chance to celebrate his life, and we are thankful that he is in his forever home in Heaven.
I am so thankful all of this took place while Quinton was on Christmas leave, because he was my rock through it all. I couldn’t imagine having to go through that on my own, and I am so thankful that I will never have to. Here are the few pictures I did get over the holidays!
