my grandmother passed away on saturday morning. the saturday before, i was sitting by her bedside. i held her hand, kissed her forehead, and whispered i love you in her ear… i feel very blessed to have spent time with her before she passed. needless to say, the last few weeks have been tough for me. i’ve never lost a loved one. and while i know she’s in a better place…it’s just not fair. i will never see her again. never hug her, never share laughs. i still cry when i think about it. on top of the pain i feel in my heart, i ache for my grandfather and my mother. i can’t even imagine how heavy their hearts must be. for now, i am working out my feelings and finding peace. i’ve withdrawn a bit, choosing to focus mostly on myself and my family. life is so fragile, so precious. enjoy your loved ones. tell them what they mean to you.
rip, grandma. you will be missed.
