Things that Don't Suck, General Shenanigans April 4, 2011 8:58 AM 0 comments

Knowing that I try to avoid super personal posts, I say...my bad.

Next year, it will be 10 years since my beloved Grandmama passed. The pain is still there, just below the surface. Hell, I tear up every single time I think of her. I wish she was still here giving me the harsh harsh advice that I needed.

I miss everything about her.

I miss watching her holding and feeding Alisha as a baby - looking at her as if she was the greatest single thing God ever made.

I miss knowing that in the spring and summer no matter what time or what day it was, if they were playing - I knew that the Cub game would be on the TV.

It was so hard to say good bye to her. I remember Noah being all of 3 1/2 yelling that he wanted "Grandma 'rie" to get up! at the visitation. And how much that cut deep into my heart.

I miss her recipe for brats that had only 3 ingredients: brats, beer and onions - and she left out the onions and beer.

She was the light. I am sorry for everything I ever did to disappointment her.

Grandmama...I really miss you, and will love you my whole life. The shepherd came, and took you from me...please keep guiding me and keeping me and our family safe.
