Dear Grandma

Dear Grandma,

It’s been a year already since you passed and not a day goes by where I don’t have some kind of thought about you. Whether it be remembering all the things you’ve done for me or little reminders here and there, it’s still so hard to deal with you being gone.

It’s remarkable what you’ve missed out on in the past year – the birth of your great-granddaughter, her first Christmas, her crawling absolutely EVERYWHERE. Isla would have been so spoiled rotten if she had got to meet you, and I know she wouldn’t mind at all. I’m certain that Grandpa loves her just a smidgen bit more because of you because he knows how much you were looking forward to meeting her.

I’m still at a little bit of disbelief that you’re actually gone and how quickly you left this world. I still don’t think it’s fair and I’m still having a hard time accepting everything. I know they say that everything happens for a reason, but I can’t seem to find a good reason as to why you were taken from us so soon. If this was a part of “God’s plan”, I’m pretty sure it’s not the best one He’s had.

Please know that you will forever be remember and loved by everyone who knew you. You were truly an amazing woman who brought joy to the lives of everyone you met.

I love you, and miss you so terribly much.

Grandma and I


One thought on “Dear Grandma

  1. Sending hugs during this hard time. If you are looking for a book to read I recommend Tiny, Beautiful, Things by Cheryl Strayed. The author talks a lot about grief in it and how we always carry the loss of a loved one with us and it is one of the most eloquent ways I’ve ever heard someone speak about how the loss of someone close to you affects you for your entire life. It’s worth a read!
