happy and sad times
This time of year brings back many memories. Yesterday was the anniversary date of my Fraternal grandmother's death. Today, my sister celebrates her birthday but it is also the 10 year anniversary of the death of my best friend/mentor, Marty who was killed in a car accident and then buried on his 40th birthday. Tomorrow is the 6th anniversary of the death of my precious maternal grandmother who passed away of an accidental drowning. On Jan. 30, we then celebrate the birthday of father-in-law, my first nephew and his sister only a few days later which preceedes the anniversary death of my grandfather. It's a time of bittersweet memories. I can't wait to get to heaven for a big reunion. I often ask God to give my grandmother a big hug and tell her how much I miss her and that I love her. I loved both of my grandmother's dearly and was close to both of them. But I had a really special bond with my maternal grandmother and her death hit me really hard. I can't believe it's only been 6 years. It seems forever.
