All my grandparents are special.I felt very lucky to have had some that lived on a farm and one who always lived in the city.When your little outside of your parents.The people that have the most influence on your life is your grandparents.So with mine I could see cows chickrens and run threw a garden filled with mud and bugs.I feel so blessed to have ate strawberries apples and tomates right were they came from.I saw new baby kittens in the barn.I got to drive a tractor when I was 5 yrs. old.The other I got to ride in cabs and a bus.I got to eat at resturants and spent the day in town.I could go on and on with all the wonderful memories they gave me.The one that lived in town her name is Cora Bell,those that lived in the country are Oscar & Winnie.For me they are Nonnie,Grandaddy & Memaw.In April I lost the last one which is Nonnie she was 93 years old.I no longer have any grandparents.I am so very sad over this,within 5 months I lost my oldest son the child that showed he loved me most and my last grandparent.I was the one that cleaned out her home a divided everything between my mother,myself and my sister.To take apart and do away with were you spent the 45 years of hoildays and the frist place you took your children when they were born.Don't all of this sound like a book.It is so hard to know that such a big part of my life is over.I am so thankful to have had them and all the beautiful memories the left me with.Now I have two things I pray that they look after my son & please let leave my grandchildren with the goodness,love and memories that was given to me.

This coming Thursday, September 24, will mark exactly one year since my grandpa passed away. I feel really really bad and my stomach feels icky in anticipation of this one year mark.
I knew that his passing would be hard on me. His first wife, my grandma, had passed in 1992 at only 67 due to cancer. I was really messed up for quite a while after she died. The psychologist surmised that I had actually been in denial from her passing for about 4 years. I guess that putting off the grieving or not letting the feelings consume me was creating even bigger problems for me.
Now, almost a year after my grandpa's sudden death from an apparent heart attack, I still can't stop crying, especially in the last week or so.
Little things make me cry too. How strange is that?
