It's been awhile since I've blogged! I'm writing this from the beach :) Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington, NC. This is where my Uncle Bill's beach house is and my brothers and sister and I have pretty much come here every summer and other holidays throughout the years for as long as we can remember. It's a BEAUTIFUL place and I would definitely consider moving here one day if it was to work out - you never know!

My parents, Ben and I and Grandmuddy came up to the beach just as a mini vacation for the weekend. Uncle Bill and Brandi are out of town in Charleston so we have the beach house to ourselves. So, why am I playing on my iPad instead of laying out by the ocean? It is colddddddddd! And overcast :( Too bad. At least we're at the beach.. My parents and me and Ben went down to the beach earlier and took a walk and looked for cool shells. I found two shells that are shape of hearts so Ben and I decided that we are going to start collecting things that look like hearts that come from nature. So wherever we are we will always keep an eye for things (whether it be rocks, seashells, wood pieces, whatever). We thought it would be fun :)

It means a lot to me to be able to spend extra time like this with Grandmuddy. She was diagnosed with cancer shortly after this past Christmas. She has been through some Chemo and has responded really well to that so Praise God! She has stayed in good spirits and is clinging to God along the way. On a not as positive note, Grabby also, sadly, has recently been diagnosed with cancer. He is not responding as well to treatment as Grandmuddy is. The doctor has given him 3 months to live. It is hard for me to deal with sometimes, when I think about it for too long. All of this sickness and sadness all at once. But all we can do is hope and pray for the best and spend as much time as we possibly can with family. I am hopefully going to be able to see Grabby this Monday before work - if not I will have to come back the next weekend. Susan is flying in from CO tomorrow night so she can see him and Jonathan is most likely going to fly in next weekend to spend time with him as well. It is a hard time for the Buck family, but I feel a lot of peace and comfort from the fact that both of my wonderful grandparents love the Lord very very much and are making the most of everything. They are focusing on the positives and relying on God to help them through the rest! I love both of them so very much and cannot focus on what could happen right now - just want to savor every moment that I have with them.

We are going to go out to eat at The Oceanic tonight so I have to take a shower and freshen up but I will post more later, as there is a lot to catch up on!
