Painted in one of the most popular navy exterior paint color; Benjamin Moore Hale Navy, this 6,000-square-foot Craftsman-style lakefront home overlooking Crystal Bay in Minnetonka Beach, Minn. features every modern element you would expect from a Gordon James Construction and Grace Hill Design. Enjoy the clean-lined kitchen opening to the spacious great room, the walls of windows showcasing the lake and the luxurious owners’ suite-with a beautiful view of Lake Minnetonka and featuring a large bath. The three-season porch with a fireplace and grill is the ideal space for waking up to a cup of coffee or winding down the evening with a glass of wine. Upstairs, the kids have their own sanctuary where, in addition to their bedrooms, there’s a large play area/bonus room. The upstairs also includes an office, laundry room, and craft room.

How are you today? I hope you’re having a great weekend.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your kind comments and emails regarding my grandfather’s situation. Thank you so much for your prayers. I know that he is being helped by it because he is calmer now, accepting the situation. I am also calmer and at peace. I know very well that it will be very hard to continue this life without having his Light and wisdom by my side but I also know that what he has taught me will live forever in my heart and soul.
Let’s start this week appreciating the people around us. Make sure to show your love and how much you care about the people in your life. Everything is limited on this earth, including our time. So, make sure to live it wisely. Make a difference around you, help more, love more but most of all, make sure to live more. Do what makes you feel alive, found your passion or if you already know what your passion is, then make sure to do it more often. Dance, swim, laugh, paint, talk… move! Don’t let your days pass by without feeling them.
My grandfather is at the very end of his life but I can say that he lived all of his 96 years the best way that he could. He made a difference on our lives, he never stopped, he was smart and could fix anything around the house… he could plant and he had planted many vegetable and fruit gardens for us. He read for me when I was a child, he built swings for me, he bought my first bike and all of the bikes I ever had.. he bought my school supplies and he was always waiting for me outside of my school if it was raining, but most of all, he, together with my grandmother always made me feel loved and protected. I always knew I could count on them for anything and everything, no matter what. They believe in me and on my dreams and they made me believe I could achieve them.
There’s always an opportunity to grow and to expand the best in you, and the best way to do it is by sharing your gifts with others so they can continue to live on.
Create a life where your gifts can be carried on through others. It’s never too late to start and it doesn’t need to be complicated. All you need is to show that you care.
My dear grandfather passed away peacefully yesterday holding my mother’s hands. I know he is now with my grandmother and without any suffering, any pain. Our faith in God is giving us strength.
Thank you all for your prayers, for your kind words and support throughout this entire time. Thank you for allowing me to share my feelings, my fears, my pain. All of that has helped me to be the way I am today… with hope, because I know that my grandfather’s love is eternal and will always live in my heart.
I hope you all have a Blessed day.
We will talk again tomorrow.
