Grandma update

Grandma is doing so good. She is back home and walking and talking. She is forgetting things a little more than she used to, so that is frustrating to her but she is grateful to be back home. I am so proud of her and all her hard work to come back to us!

7 years

As I think back about the anniversary of my mom's passing 7 years ago I think about the things that we were doing. We were taking turns laying with her in the bed. Feeding her, painting her toenails, shaving her legs, combing her hair. Even a bit of laughing because laughing and crying go hand in hand. I miss her so very much. As hard as you fight to keep the memories clear and present they do fade. Time heals nothing, your memories just fade and you get used to your new normal life. My heart still aches as I imagine it always will. We are 7 years closer to being together again and I am looking forward to this so much! I can't wait to see her vibrant smile, her tender blue eyes, hear her voice again, touch her skin, hug and kiss her and talk about anything and everything. I can't wait to see her with the grandkids, seeing how much she loves them. When I see her again I just may not let her go ever.
