Easter Eggs

We got ready for Easter tonight by dying Easter Eggs.  The girls had a lot of fun and Poppa was, of course, the center of attention.  The eggs turned out great and the girls wanted to get more eggs to keep it going!

Missing you and your healing touch

Missing you and your healing touch

Thinking of the time you came all the way to College Station to be with Emma after a frantic phone call from me with my fears for her, you even beat Ray home from work that day and you were two hours away at work yourself.

Thinking of the times you laid in the girls' bed with them at your house when they were not feeling well and you knew that Ray and I had exhausted ourselves and needed much rest.

Thinking of the multiple times both girls, or one or the other, would lay with you in your bed when they weren’t feeling well just to get Nana’s healing touch.

Well Nana, both of your girls are sick right now and I am missing you and thinking about how you would be over here if you could, sleeping on a pallet of blankets on the floor next to their bed in order to watch over them through the night because they are the center of your universe.

Missing the ability to share my worries and concerns about our girls with you and hearing your calm reassurances that all will be well.

Missing you…


I hear a sound and you are there

A cool wind blows and your embrace comforts me

I hear a song and memories are swift and sweet

I lay my face among your clothes as if I am leaning my head upon your shoulder

Your granddaughters wear your perfume and it lingers as if you were here

I see you in the ones you have left behind, little mannerisms that shout your presence within that person

I talk to you in my dreams and then I wake to my reality

Bittersweet are these things that I embrace every day for it helps me to cherish your memory

Love You, 
Always and Forever
