My last grandparent, Nana Rice passed away in February and I knew that my next post had to address that loss and so I wrote nothing.
|I swear she is laughing in this photo!|
The last time I saw her I asked, "How are you feeling?"
She answered, "Terrible!" But then she laughed. A sincere chuckle that made me wonder if she was actually fine or if she just knew how to find a moment for release.
I think of this small interaction often. I take so much from her. She was a woman that had it figured out: enjoy life, gather the people you care about most, raise a family that supports one another, and find laughter when nothing else can be done.
|I love my family.|
