This month has been a sorrowful one for my family. On my birthday (12/12) we lost my grandma. We are gathered together today to celebrate the family we still have and to remember those who came before to teach us the importance of cherishing every moment. Not many can say they got to spend 40 years of their life with a grandparent, and for that I feel extremely blessed. My grandmother was a woman always ready to share a humorous story, with an open heart who loved being ‘mom’ and ‘grandma’ to anyone willing to let her bring them into her life.
Though it is with a slightly heavier heart this year, I want to wish all the friends I’ve made here a very Merry, Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year! I hope the holidays bring you lots of love, family fun, laughter and warm memories with those who mean the most to you.
And here’s a virtual toast to 2018 being much kinder to all of us!
