I'm missing you so much today. I'm missing your wonderful hugs, and your welcoming arms. I'm missing your
kindness and love. I'm missing the stories you'd tell me. And sitting with you on the porch of your old house, enjoying french toast sticks which you bought specially for me, because you knew they were my favorite. I'm missing lounging at the cabin with you, and buying taffy and fudge.
I'm remembering your kindness and love. I'm remembering your completely nonjudgmental lens through which you saw life, and the acceptance you showed me. I'm remembering your intellect and how incredibly gifted you were. Like the time you secretly took grandpa's test for him, and "his" scores were off the charts. I'm remembering how you always made everyone feel so welcomed; it's no wonder my friends all adore you. I'm remembering your soul, and how I truly feel honored to have lived in your presence. You have the kindest soul grandma. You're a special one.
Here's to your beautiful life, and all the lives that are more beautiful because of you. I love you so so much, Grandma.
