When it's time to say goodbye to a Grandparent

 Saying goodbye to the person who helped shape who I am today, has been a rush of emotions. The heartache is still ever present and fresh but I am moving from sadness to peace. My Grandma (as do most Grandmas) holds a special place in my heart. See... she taught me how to cook the best pies, how to get a stain out of just about anything and above all, how to love others fiercely and abundantly. Through that fierce and abundant love she taught me by example, how to be a loving Wife and Mother. It still surprises me every now and then that she's gone. When I try a yummy new recipe or find a dish that we had been hunting for, the first person I want to tell is my Grandma.

 The love that she poured into me everyday is what I miss the most. It doesn't matter where you are in life, a Grandparent is always there. From wiping yours tears as a child to giving advice (And not heading that advice as a teen) to watching you grow into the adult you are today... A Grandparent's love is pure and never changing. That is what I will remember the most about my Grandma, her never changing love. Now that she is gone, it left me with a strange void or sense of emptiness I haven't experienced before.

  Pushing through that void hasn't been easy and I still struggle on some days. Dealing with the death of a loved one is difficult and it takes time to heal. I'm still in the healing process but talking about her helps me. On the worst of days, I hold close the memories and know, it's OK to be sad! I miss her more than anything and will never forget the things she taught me! This one's for you Nanny!

  2. Things get easier with time, but you’ll always miss her. My great grandma passed away the month before I found my soulmate 2 years ago. I so wish that she could’ve met my boyfriend and my son. This blog was really real to me. ❤️ Thoughts and prayer for you.

  4. Losing a grandparent can be so hard, it almost feels like a different kind of loss because your bond to them is different. I was my grandpas care taker in the last days he was here with us and I refused to sleep during that time. After he passed I felt lost and devastated, he was one of my absolute favorite people.
