Celebrate Life Every Day & Be Thankful for Those Who Love You!


At the end of last week, my grandmother passed away.  She was the last living grandparent to go.  It is a very solemn feeling not to have any of my grandparents here.  I don't think that her passing has quite hit me yet.  Her funeral is tomorrow and, unfortunately, I am unable to attend.  I will miss her.

This post is my little tribute to her and a way for me to grieve in part.  Her passing has reminded me to celebrate life every day and to be thankful for those who love me.  Life is very short really.

The above picture is of my grandmother in her late teens or early twenties from many, many years ago.  She is the one on the far right.  The other two lovely girls are her sisters.
