Quiet Days

On February 5th, my Grandma died. We were extremely close but her health had been declining for years, so it wasn't too surprising, but still hard none the less.
Anyway, we didn't have a funeral for her... but Saturday morning we had a "Celebration of Life" for her which was nice.
There were so many people who gathered together in honour of her and it was actually quite emotional.
What mattered though to me, was that my Grandpa started out really nervous because he's not one for planning big gatherings, but in the end he was super touched that so many people came.

I was supposed to make John's big birthday dinner on Saturday night but after the Celebration, I was feeling worn out and emotional so I opted to make it Sunday instead.

So on Saturday night, this is what my evening looked like:

And the following morning was quiet with coffee, bacon and eggs:

Sometimes after an emotional event, those quiet moments are just what the doctor ordered!

I am so sorry for your loss. You are right, quiet moments after emotional events are so comforting.
