Random Grief!

I know I have posted this already this year, but I really am blown away by how random grief is and how totally unexpectedly it can sneak up on you!

I was looking at some things online this morning and I saw some bed sheets ~ they were songbird bed sheets ~ which seems rather innocuous in and of itself. I had this thought, though...

Granny LOVES songbirds! I bet she'd love a set of those for her birthday!

And then it hit me and here I sit...crying lots...and wishing she was still here so I could buy her a set of sheets!

It's been 7 months, Granny, but you are never far from my thoughts! Miss you...


  1. Hey Barb,
    It struck me that you wrote about your grandma. My grandma passed away last Nov. at the age of 98 and just the other day she was really on my heart. Yes, they are always in our hearts and missed dearly. Anyway I was going to share a poem I'd put together when she passed away. If you're interested it's here - http://titus24u.blogspot.com/2008/11/its-time.html Blessings, Jill

  2. ((((HUGS))) ... I love you! Sorry that you are grieving and missing Granny!
