::inside my life::

I have been married for nearly a decade to a man I met at a bus stop on my way to jail... and you know, after 10 years of marriage got to say I'm glad introduced myself to him at the bus stop!

We have a 4 year old daughter, Madison who lives in the world of imagination... she mght tell you she is a zebra named Marty, or a mermaid or a fish. But to me she is my "gift from God".

We have a two year old daughter, Eden, who repeats EVERY thing her big sister says or does. She loves accessories and never likes to leave the house without a purse, tutu, tiara, cape or hat.

I run a photography business - Krista Jefferson Photography - that has been a dream come true!

I am on a journey to "be". More like Jesus and less like me.

Saying Good Bye

This morning we got the call we all dread. Mark's Grandpa passed away this morning. Although he has been sick for too long and was hospitalized last night, I was taken by surprise. I guess you call it denial.

I loved Grandpa very much. When we'd go visit - which was never often enough - his face would just light up. He'd hug Mark as tight as humanly possible every time - a grandpa/grandson ritual. He'd dance with my girls and laugh at their antics - even though he rarely heard what they said. He always had candies and treats for "us kids" and the great grandkids crafts on display. He has gone through many years of pain and sadness. He was a man of much love and we'll miss him a lot.

The girls don't understand. Especially Eden. She said "don't worry, he'll come back to life". Too many cartoons for kids to understand the finality of death. Madi went to the kitchen and got me cookies "to cheer me up" and gave me Grandpa's photo off of our fridge. Eden saw I liked when Madi gave me the photo so she got me the first thing she could grab off the fridge too - a notepad that says "I love Jim" (Jim from the Office :-))

A couple weeks ago when we all got together for our early "Christmas" (before Ron & Louise headed to Florida fro the winter) I did some family photos - now I am so glad! Sad thing is I just shipped them yesterday to everyone - what timing. Here are a few memories of a man I loved very much. Good bye Grandpa!

I'm so sorry for your loss (Krista and the rest of the fam). We'll keep your family in our prayers. Those pictures must be even more special now.
