Today was a day that I just stayed home, tried to make things as normal as possible.  Truth is, I was quite sad I missed my amazing Grandmother's funeral, something I never would had missed if I wasn't in this phase of pregnancy and could travel the distance. I wish I could have been there.  My littles and I spent the day eating the foods Gram loved and looking at just the digital pictures I have (which would be just the last 12 years). I posted just a few of the many I have below. I also have oodles of pictures from the predigital camera days in the attic I need to locate.  Lots of her on the NH and Maine coast! Truth is, although I missed today, I certainly didn't miss out when she was alive.  I did a lot of living with her, spent lots of time with her, took her on vacations for 7 years, had who knows how many weekly lunch dates, phone conversations and letters and I have so, so many memories. I'm lucky, lucky, lucky. Thankful I made it there for her 90th birthday, thankful she met Adrian and Audra, thankful she loved me and glad she knew that I loved her a bushel and a peck back.  I'm so blessed to have had such a great grandmother all these years.  She will be missed, but the memories are mine to hold on to forever.

When she met Adrian
When she met Audra



  1. She looks like she was a hoot. I'm so sorry she is gone, but I am so glad you were able to share her life in so many amazing ways. I don't think that's typical, and it is just wonderful.

  2. I'm so sorry for your sadness. She will live forever as long as you keep remembering. Focus on all that love y'all shared.
    Adrian has her eyes. God bless and keep you all.

  3. Sorry for your loss. We weren't able to make it to your Gramma's funeral but were able to make it to calling hours. I was looking for you to introduce myself not knowing that you weren't there due to a special gift on the way. Your Gramma raised a special family of kids and the grand kids I know are pretty awesome.

  4. It is sad you missed her funeral.
    But you did what you had to do: you loved her ánd showed it to her when she was still alive.
    It's better to have memories and no regrets about her living.
    Wishing you lot's of love and cuddles to you and your family.

  5. Very sorry for your loss. It looks like you have had a very special bond.
