I came across this video this morning...It touched my heart being a country music fan and a George Jones fan...It brought back memories of how hard it is to sing one last time for someone...

When i was a teenager my Papa Ross passed away at only 42...He was my papa by marriage and the only papa I would ever know on both sides...I loved him dearly and I still miss him every day....I grew up singing and competing when I was young...Papa use to say "If you come sing I will go tell that preacher that I will go to church"..I use to just laugh...I never did sing for him until the day we laid him to rest...It was hard, but I had to sing for him...

Then 2 years ago, my younger brother asked me to sing at little Rob's funeral...He wanted me to sing the hymnal I sang growing up and I had competed with that song...Robbie had sung that song to little Rob at night when trying to get him to sleep...Daddy and I sang it...It was important to me that I do this for Robbie and I asked for prayers to be able to because i had a bad cold and i only have one vocal cord left from having cancer...I also went back up to his grave site after everyone had left and sang for him one last time one on one...This video is beautiful, but reminded me how hard it is to say goodbye by singing to your loved one....Goodbye George Jones! You will be missed!!!

Oh, onto happier things today! My orders are finished and I'm glad to be starting on new things...With only 2 weeks and 2 days left of school I better get moving and getting some things done....The fur babies are asleep and the house is quiet, so I'm headed to my work table...I hope you have a very blessed day!! 

Hugs from the Farmhouse!! Jen
