Today has been one of those lazy easy Sundays. Hugo spent the morning working on the yard with Ava, and Paloma and i took a long nap. There was no schedule to keep or errands to run. It was just Sunday and all together uneventful. The girls cuddled and played and i think three separate pots of coffee have found themselves brood.
All day today i kept thinking back to one of my favorite quotes. Someone posted it on facebook the other day and i had to find it again just to read it out loud and savor every beautiful word.
"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are… Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect Tomorrow. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in my pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
- Mary Jean Iron
And while yes this has been a normal day, it has also been bitter sweet. Today is my grandma's birthday and the first one we have spent without her. So while the girls were having some sister time, i snuck off to find my green and white Afghan, as my grandma called it, and sang her Happy Birthday.
I have never lost anyone that i loved. My mom says i have been crying over loosing my grandma since i was three years old. I guess it hit me early that she would probably be the first person i would loose ..........and three year old me was right.
So i went through my pictures and realized we are cuddling in every single one.
Our Afghan.........and three year old me loven me some grandma time.
I love you to the moon and back again, Happy Birthday grandma.......i miss you.
