Thinking of Grandma

If you’ve followed my recent posts, you know that February has been a difficult month for me, with several anniversaries. My dad’s birthday and day he died. Ben’s birthday. And now, today, February 23, the day my Grandma, Dora, died. Since her birthday is coming up, and things have been rough with these milestones, I want to respectfully acknowledge this date and my love for my grandma, but I will wait until March 5, her birthday – at least a happier date – to write more about her.

I grew up in a house with my grandma. I was also with her in that house when she succumbed to cancer. We knew the best and worst of each other and loved each other unconditionally. She is a part of so many memories, and of much of who I am, and for that I am grateful.

I am thinking of you today, Grandma. You are always in my heart and I love you and miss you.
