Until we meet again....

We just got back from my grandma's funeral. It was nice, such a beautiful day with the scent of lilac in the air and a gentle breeze.
There were birds singing in the background at her service and many shared fond memories of her...she was certainly the rock of our family. The most sensible woman I have ever known. Always had a positive perspective on things. Always.
Loved plants, she had a house full of them that she tended to every day. Loved birds, loved gardens...the simple things in life.
I never saw her mad even once in my whole life. Always smiling....

Just a kind hearted, positive, strong, all around nice person. One I was lucky to know.

I'll miss her....but I look at it as more of a 'see you later' .....

I'm sure she's up there listening to her polka's and tending all the pretty flowers, listening to the birds singing, just the way she liked it :)


  1. Wish I could have met her. Praying I can be more like her! Also praying for your family as you deal with this significant loss.

    Fondly, Kristin

  2. Oh, I am sorry Jodi. What a blessing to have her in your life. What a great example to all who met her. I wish I could keep that smile on MY face!!

    Blessings to you and your family!
