My Grandma

With Mothers Day just around the corner it felt right to acknowledge the important role Grandmothers play in our lives.  I was lucky enough to always have my Grandmother living close-by so there are so many memories of wonderful afternoons we spent together drinking tea in her living room as well as the many hours she would spend telling me stories of how life was back in the good ol' days. She loved to talk and she especially loved the fact that she had 21 grandchildren in total!  She is dearly missed here by all.
Here is a photo of me and my Grandma in 1988.


  1. My grandparents meant so much to me, too. I have one grandmother still alive. It's fantastic that my kids get to know her.
    It's wonderful to have a face for the grandmother you wrote about.

  2. I just read your book ! I am a "first mom" and could relate to your story so very much. So many of the sixth senses.. I just grinned as I knew you would describe it that way ! I'm looking for a way to email you? I also was able intro my birthson to his great grandma's .. It was heaven on earth ! And gr. grandma is now 100 yr. old. *)~

  3. Glad you liked my story! Message me on my facebook page so we can chat
