So long for now

This week my Grandpa passed away.  I will not be going back to Nebraska for the funeral or anything and that feels ok for me.  I made a video for him a couple weeks ago that he saw and I had also posted on here.  He use to read my blog to keep up with my adventures.

I wasn't all that sad at first because I knew it was coming sooner than later.

I went outside like I usually do at sunset to check out what the sky looks like that day.  I was bummed at first... yes it was beautiful but I was hoping for amazing colors.  I am someone who, I guess you could say, thinks and feels deeply and spiritually.  I have had people who have passed away follow me, give me messages and sometimes plain out haunt me.  So I figured my grandpa would send me a goodbye... so that is why I was kind of bummed at first when it looked like there wasn't going to be any fabulous colors.  So I took a picture and posted it on my facebook page kind of bummed. Yes it is beautiful in it's whites and yellows but it didn't feel right.

As soon as I posted this I looked out the window and saw the most amazing sunset yet.

There was pink all around me... in every direction as far as you could see...

With the most amazing orange glow from the sun's final moments...

I stood out in the yard taking pictures and I cried...

I have to say my grandpa gave me a wonderful gift for his so long for now.  I said so long for now and gave him a thumbs up.  After this amazing sunset I feel like my so long for now is complete.  Thanks, Grandpa for the best sunset in New Mexico so far.
