happy birthday gram

Sep 2, 2012

Today is my Grandma’s birthday. She would have been 94 and we would have had a birthday party at her house yesterday morning. She would have sat in her chair and looked us each in the eye and infused our souls with her abiding love for us and the courage to move forward with faith. She would have giggled at the children’s antics and delighted in the adorableness. She would have kissed me on the cheek. Late at night when it was time for bed, she would have asked me to make her some rice pudding.

So today I will.

I haven’t made it since she passed away at Christmas 2008. In fact, I’ve never made it for anyone except my grandma. It was our special late night thing.

Tonight I will make it for my children and tell them my favorite stories about grandma.

I miss her so.
