I Give You an Announcement

Thursday, January 28, 2010
A few things:

a) CJane posted a beautiful essay on A Good Grief today. Absolutely beautiful.

2) Vic's grandfather passed away and I will be singing at his funeral this weekend. I'm envious that he gets to see Lucy. Happy for him that he's with his spunky wife again. Reflecting on the ebb and flow of life.

c) Your ugly faces are absolutely fantastic! I'll be posting them tomorrow and issuing a new fun challenge. Get ready for some laughs.

4) For those "Utahns" out thar--I will be on KSL Studio 5 one week from tomorrow...Friday, Feb 5th. ( Channel 5 at 11:00 a.m.) They will be telling Lucy's story and interviewing me about my website, my journey, etc. You are all a part of that journey. I am humbled at this opportunity. And please Tivo it for me--I currently don't have cable! (Don't tell them that).

I felt prompted to snap a shot of Vic talking with his Grandfather about family history a few months ago. It was one of the last times we saw him. We'll miss you, Grandpa (might not miss the kisses on the lips and pinches on the bum...but what can ya do when your grandson is married to a cute little wife?)


  1. I just set my DVR to record next Friday, I will look forward to seeing the show. You'll do awesome!

  2. Ha ha pinch your bum...but I'm sure you're not laughing. One of my grandfathers liked to kiss people on the lips. It was gross. We weren't sure whether to laugh or cry when we brought my French pen pal over to the grandparents house when I was 16 and he said to her, "Come over here! I've never had a real French kiss!" Then he kissed her on the lips (not a french kiss, though.)

  3. I'm sorry to hear about Vic's grandpa. What a sweet reunion that must be with Lucy and his sweet wife. I will definately watch you on Studio 5, good luck with that! You are awesome.

  4. G.pa looks like he could possibly rummage up a little mischief when reunited with his sweetheart and your Lucy. He will take great care of your baby girl... I am sure others before he arrived were already seeing to her ache as I know she has to be missing Mommy, Daddy & Peter.


  5. Molly, thanks so much for your candor. I have followed your story for sometime, and I am so very sorry for your loss. I myself have lost two children, my oldest and my youngest. I long for them daily, I shed tears becasue my heart misses them so very much. I the "good grief" it is wonderful...I find joy in each day by serving those around my. My children and I make blankets each year to donate to newborns who have literally nothing. We do it in the names of my children who have passed. Thanks for guiding those who grieve...it can be a lonely place. Hugs!

  6. Awe... he looks like he was a splendid Grandfather! That is a priceless photo. So sorry for your loss... so thrilled for little Lucy!

  7. I'm glad and jealous you are going to be able to share Lucy's story. I'm glad you'll have the opportunity to share the resource you've created in her honor. What a tender event to have the passing of Vic's grandfather. I hope you all will have a sense of comfort and peace with his services. I am certain that your voice will be one way that comfort and peace will be felt by others.

  8. What are you going to sing, Molly, if you don't mind my asking?

    I had to laugh at the bum-pinching remark. Sounds like grandpa appreciated the ladies! (I've noticed that a lot of men get a bit less restrained in showing that appreciation as they age.) He looks like a lovely man.

    Lucy will be glad to see him.


  9. So sorry about Vic's grandfather. My grandma just passed away 2 weeks ago--everything is still fresh. So glad you listened to that prompting to take a picture. We listened to many promptings, as well, and got to see her the morning she passed on. So GRATEFUL for that! So grateful!

    Best of luck with all that is coming up in your life! :)

  10. My grandmother is Grandpa Jackson's younger sister and she said you sang beautifully at the funeral.
