Missing Gramma

Every so often I am overwhelmed by how much I miss my gramma.  I think in times when I am more down, the loss of my gramma becomes more challenging for me.  She was ALWAYS there for so much of my life, I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that she isn't anymore. I get really sad when I think about times when I would be loud and obnoxious around her and she'd bark my name in exasperation but yet with a smirk in her tone.  Or how she ALWAYS said I was beautiful and called me "doll."   Or when I think about how proud of me she was. No matter what.  I could always count on her unconditional love.  I miss her tremendously.  This was the first birthday in my life that I didn't have a card from her--and of my cards, hers was the one I looked forward to the most.  

Please take advantage of the time you have with people you love.  The tragic events that have occurred in Japan, and are continuing to occur remind me how important it is to make the most of the time we have, and love the people we care about with ferocity.

Ipo is comforting me and helping make me feel better.
Love and miss you gramma.
