Just thinking back on memories as a kid with my Grandma who passed away about 8 years ago…
Though I don’t remember any specific birthday or Christmas present she gave me, I remember playing Chinese Checkers, Pick Up Sticks and badminton. I love how she would say ‘worsh’ instead of wash, or ‘rastle’ instead of wrestle. Or her funny sayings… ‘man alive!’ We would walk down to the Thrifty’s and she would get me an ice cream cone. She always put her turn signal on even going into her driveway and there was nobody behind us.
Do you ever wish you could know someone better at a later time in your life? I think it would be fun to make Christmas cookies with her now. I’d like to talk to her more about her childhood. I’d love for her to teach me first hand how she made her awesome meatloaf.
I guess I will have to just cherish the time I DID have with her.
