Missing Her

It’s been a month since my grandmother died…  I know it’s time for me to get back to life in its entirety, but I still don’t want to.

Handkerchief bottom view She died two days before her 80th birthday, and this was going to be her birthday present.  I gave it to her on her birthday anyway and she held it in her hand as I saw her for the very last time on this earth.  I know she would have loved the bling….  she was ALL about the bling!

Here is my nanny with Jack 3 years ago.  She played baseball with him ALL afternoon! 


She’s on the far left of this picture at the age of 15…  that’s when she married my papa.


Here are the girl granddaughters in the kitchen (that holds SO many memories) creating her memorial flowers and pictures.


Her memorial wreath that we made.


She also LOVED parties with cake.  We celebrated her birthday with one of her favorite colors… HOT PINK. :)


I know she’s at peace.  I know she’s happy again.  I know I will see her again. 

But, today I still miss her. 

I’m filled with regret for the times I wasn’t there.

And, my heart aches for her.


What a sweet post. I know its not easy to lose someone like your Nanny. Good to know that she's always in your heart and probably watching over you and your family!! Missed you!!

My grandma loved bling too...anything that sparkled. I'll still see something and thing "Granny would have loved this!" It was hard when we lost her...I hope that the memories you do have of her make you smile today. Focus on the good:)

Hey Liberty, so sorry to hear of your loss. Its never easy...my thoughts are with you!

Your Bloggity Friend,


So sorry to hear of your loss. My grandfather died 9 years ago, and sometimes I still get teary when I think of him. Loss is never easy. Your family is in my thoughts!

I love the pictures, Libby. I miss her too. This past weekend was especially hard for some reason. I keep thinking if I drive back to Morrilton she will be there. I don't want to accept the fact that she is gone. I just miss her so much. I want to drive to Jerusalem and crawl up in her bed and just stay there. I love you so very much.

I've been really missing her too! Caught myself thinking about seeing her this summer.

That was a lovely post.


your blog just warmed my heart up so much! what a beautiful woman she must have been to be remembered in such a special way.my grandma passed away after i moved with my husband to our first duty station 4 years ago. i remember her often,there has not been a single moment since that i don't wish i could share with her.its like she walked out of the room thirty minutes ago and im still waiting for her to walk in.some of us have grandmas that are so special. i loved reading this!
