Today marks the one year anniversary of the passing of my beloved Grandma. It shocks me into reality to think that I have lived a whole year without her here. It's been a blur of a year. I will never forget the details of that day: lots and lots of snow (I called in sick that day, oddly enough), the phone call with my Dad (hearing him cry was one of the most heartbreaking things of my life), The Family Stone (one of my mine and my Grandma's fav movies) played that day, and the absolute heartbreak I felt.
It wasn't sudden and my visit with Grandma just a few weeks earlier, was one of the best moments of my life, but when someone is lost, there are always regrets, aren't there? I am beyond thankful that even prior to her death, I began to realize that our loved ones can be gone in an instant, and we must cherish the moments we have with them. Learning this life lesson is a gift I'm truly grateful for.
I chose beautiful flowers to send to my Grandparents' house today: full of beautiful white lilies and roses. I know Grandma would have loved them so much. I hope they brighten up the little table where she sits, her presence ever strong when we're around. In the card, I included a simple little message:
EVERYDAY I THINK OF YOU
EVERYDAY I MISS YOU
EVERYDAY I LOVE YOU.
With all our love always,
Kelly and Alex
