So today I met some lovely people and we'll start with my first first of the day!
I went to the nail salon to get my nails done with my grandma! What a wonderful and unique way to spend the afternoon with my grandmother. I was pleasantly impressed with my nails and thought it was interesting getting a pedicure. It was my first time getting this done so of course I was very intrigued by everything they did!
While there I was asked do you like to pamper yourself? I thought it was funny and responded with a no this is quite a treat to even be able to be here! It really was I thought to think that I laid so many nights in hospital beds thinking of how my prom days would lay out what would happen and how it would happen. Hoping more than anything I would get to go. Planning littlest details just to keep time passing and have something to do with the silent moments in my room. What my date would like what I would do if I didn't have a date what every what if situation covered. I hoped I would make it for at least one mile marking teen event this year.
My second first was going out for a lovely birthday dinner at Moretti's a local Italian restaurant that Jake's family picked for his birthday. So although it wasn't the Thai restaurant Jake had originally hoped for it lead up for a fun filled and nice evening.
Now as the day before prom activities come one other thing came into mind just as a passing thought to check the weather. I checked the weather and sure enough thunder storms. But I am not letting this rain on my parade. I remembered someone who's life will not ever be forgotten for as long as I live. As I have mile-marking moments in my life no matter when they are I always remember one person and that's my grandma Wilcox. She passed away the summer before 5th grade. What a hard rocky summer that was for me. I felt I had completely lost control and I miss her greatly. Although I always remember she would want me to have fun I think that tomorrow is a symbolic meaning of the fact there are tears pouring down from heaven that her as my grandma Jacobus put it- "her little baby is growing up". I just wanted to take the time to remember my grandma tonight and remind her I will always be the baby in the family by numbers even if I do grow up. Even though it hurts me that she can't be by my side to see me all dressed up I know she will be there by spirit. And that means the world to me.
Over-all today and this evening was a wonderful evening and I can't wait for prom tomorrow! With everything planned out and ready to go we can only pray for good health and strength for the evening ahead. And I ask each faithful reader out there or those just coming to my blog- to say a pray for me with the day ahead that it will be fulfilling and a wonderful night of just being an ordinary teen.
