Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in GOD's sight.

Weekend Recap

So I just reread my last post about Mona and well after I read it, it kinda made me sad because well all I talked about was death and crying, which, my weekend was more than that! So, let me tell you everything!

Wednesday- Well theres only one thing we really did and that was drive! It was a pretty smooth drive. We drove to my 'papas' house which is located in Rugby, North Dakota. VERY small town! It is right next to Minot which is a bigger, well known city. We got there, relaxed and slept.

Thursday- Thursday morning Skyler came and picked up Shelia so they could go to the visitation together. He came in to go to the bathroom (Zane was sleeping in the car). He came, did his thing and they were off. Meanwhile my dad was, well to be honest I have no idea! Something outside... After he was done, we went to Pamida (rugby's target) because I forgot my black socks and was NOT going to wear white ones!! After that we drove to the Hotel/Casino where we would be staying for the next two days. It was placed on an Indian Reservation... Very interesting! We dropped our stuff and ran into those three hommies. We ran our stuff into our room, ran into some other families members (my stepmom comes from a family of eight kids so there's a lot of family!). We drove to the church where the visitation would be at. When we first got there, I didn't know what to do. Honestly, I just wanted to give Skyler a big, long bear hug more than anything! But instead I went downstairs and explored the church with Mona's niece, Taylor! Skyler approached us and said "Have you seen Zane? I dont know who but some brat is screaming outside and somebody needs to take care of it." Us three went outside to see Zane had been the kids screaming, and the short version of the story: he was climbing up something and slide down which caused three deep cuts plus his hands covered in dirt. I felt so bad for him! *** Later I was standing in the entry way with Taylor chatting. I told her I wanted to see Mona, but was scared. She offered to walk up with me and I said yes. We walked up and the moment I saw her beautiful face, I cried, and cried, and cried. Some family of hers made two poster tri-folds with pictures from birth to death. There was this framed picture of Mona and Zane when Zane was, I'd guess 2 or 3 weeks! It was so precious... At the end of the visitation we took Zane and a couple other cousins to the hotel to swim, we swam, ate, and attempted catching grapes in our mouths in the pool (huge fail). All us cousins showered and went to my other cousin Sarahs room and watched TV while the adults went to the casino... Two of my cousins got picked up and then it was Sarah, Zane and I. Skyler came to check on Zane then I got the key to there room so us two could hang until Skyler was done. We played with his new toys, watch TV, and talked about his school. It was about 2:30 and there was a knock on the door. I didn't really wanna open it but I did and saw my dad and my aunt Sheryl to let me go from my 'shift'. Honestly, I didn't want to leave! I wanted to stay with Zane, not sleep! But I did anyway...

Friday- I already blogged about today but I'll redo it. Woke-up and went to Sarahs room. I went into Skylers room to ask if they wanted any donuts. Instead Skyler tried to pay me for babysitting. I did not take it! Ya, $20 is a nice chunk of change and heck ya I wanted it but he could use it way more wisely then I! We got ready and well, read the other post :) Let me add, Zane and I played connect (xbox) at his house and had a lot of fun!! Didn't do much. Okay, im just gunna tell you I have had no sleep the entire weekend so I'm getting really tired and my 'days' are getting leads thought filled! Played with Zane, talked with Skyler, helped with thank yous and watched Transformers 2 with the cuz's...

Saturday- Went out to eat at Applebee's with Skyler, Sheryl, there family's and my family. Then drove to Fargo! Roads were bad so we just stayed there... My amazing stepmom planed for me and Sarah to surprise me and to go to a movie! We went to Beastly which is a pretty amazing movie if I do say so...

Sunday- today we drove, did homework, slept a little... After small group I got it! Yep... I got my Rebel!! Love it!! Took many pictures!

In away, this weekend has changed my life in good. Now I don't have to be worrying every minute if Monas gunna die and I can schedule stuff without having to worry about canceling it and feeling bad... I know that sounds horrible... I am happy though because she is now in a better, pain free place! Mona, I love you sooooo much!! Skyler, txt me anytime! Zane, keep up your Call of Duty skills!! Love you all!!

Love ya,
