I Miss My Grandma - Today Was Her Day - Grandmother
I Miss My Grandma
Yesterday while at work sitting alone in a data room taking a break, I was overcome by this rushing feeling where I began to think of my Grandmother who had past several years ago in 2005.
For some reason I felt a sudden urgency to cry seeing a vision of her always smiling face and remembering the gentle rub on my back with a huge smile as she looked into my eyes asking me if I was hungry.
I held back the cry and I began to think of all those joyful days I had spent with Grandma growing up as a young boy after school and during my adult days.
The many memories and happy feelings that were spent talking and sharing with Grandma seemed now to have been so short. Where had all the time gone so fast without warning.
Grandma had always been able to sense sadness in my voice or things in my life, and I could always count on her to provide a shining light to take over the feelings with a simple little sign or supporting words.
Then it dawned on me that Grammas birthday would have been tomorrow which is today the day I am writing this December 15, 2010.
She would have been 93 today. She left this world to be with her husband Grandpa and the Lord on August 25, 2005 at a young age of 87.
Her time was to soon, not only for her but for me. I miss my Grandma.
Grandma was there for me no matter what I did in my life good or bad she would always give me a boost of confidence. She knew when I needed it and I appreciated it she was always on my side.
I was never hungry in the company of Gramma as she could fill my stomach and my soul so that all the troubles would just brush away into dust making it easier to fight another day.
There were many days in a year growing up but I always would remember that Grandmas birthday was on the 15th of December. She was a simple woman never asking for much.
I was always guaranteed a hug if only to bring her a card or a ring of the phone. She was happy just to be thought of on her special day. Grandma enjoyed more about giving than she did receiving. That was just Gramma.
Today is Grandmas birthday and will always be her day for she was the sun thats arising and the stars in the sky. I will keep her in my heart and look for her when the day comes. I know she will be waiting for me as she has always done. I miss you Grandma.
