I miss my grandma everyday. She was like my best friend as a child. We were together all the time. Like two peas in a pod. I felt her love for me. It was strong and endearing.
We even have the exact same birth mark on the exact same arm (the right arm). When she passed away in March of 2005. I nearly died the same moment I realized the words that came from my mom's mouth, "She's gone."
I still struggle to this day with the lost of this beautiful soul. But I had to realize my own words. "Soul" if her soul lives on her warming spirit will forever live through me. The things she taught me. The words she spoke. The example she lead with her life. And most important her love for children.
I learned after she transitioned and after I became a teacher, she had a desire to be a teacher. I never knew that about her, but it made since. Every summer she would teach Vacation Bible School at her church (I was here assistant) and through out the year she taught children's Sunday school. My grandma loved the kids!
I dropped a tear in the ocean and the day u find it, is the day I will stop loving you.
Now this man right here, is no joke the most disciplined man I know. Talk about a love and hunger for The Most High...hands down he's got it! My granddad is a cool OG with much strength and a wealth of knowledge. I'm grateful he is still alive and well to share his love of life and guidance
I'm beyond blessed and grateful for my family. I'll do a post of my parents, siblings (I'm the eldest of five!) and the hubby soon.
