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 :)
