Today Gran would have been 65 years old! It’s been such a strange year and a few months without her. As the kids grow up I realize that I miss her more and more. She would love to see how they are learning and maturing…and how they challenge us! I know she would have loved having them down at her house for a week or so each summer…and boy how I know I would have loved that! We miss her. Things are not the same without her. In the same breath, we know she is in Heaven and that we will see her again.
Just yesterday the kids and I were singing a song in the car—it’s a good one that really puts things in perspective! (Building 429) This is NOT OUR HOME.
Ruby looks a lot like her…and acts like her, too! We love how Ruby has some strong personality traits that remind us of Gran–loyalty, a love for books, and a healthy lack of concern of her outward appearance.
