I can’t believe it’s been two years since losing my grandpa and just over three years since my grandma passed away. Where has the time gone? I miss them so much. Especially when things are going well in my life and I know they would be so happy for me. They have been the only consistent figures in my life which has meant the world to me. In a life filled with let downs and disappointments…they were my safe haven. I looked up to them so much and cherished all my time with them. Of course, I wish I would have visited more but I can’t change that now. I know they knew that I loved them as I know they loved me…unconditionally.
I wish I could take some comfort knowing they are in heaven now but I’m not even sure what I believe in when it comes to religion. I would love to think they are united having a glorious time TOGETHER, smiling at me. But even if that’s not what happens when we pass away I do feel their energy and positive influence in my life daily. I wish I could sit with them one last time eating dinner (which is actually lunch) of various side dishes including carrot and raisin salad and bread with Miracle Whip instead of butter (still one of my favorites!). We would eat, and then watch the birds in the backyard while they caught up on my life. They were so good about asking about ME and remembering details. They always remembered my friends’ names and what they were up to as well. My grandparents were very giving, loving people.
I miss them so much but take solace knowing how happy they would be for me right now…as all of my dreams are coming true. I know that’s what they wanted for me. I love you Grandma and Grandpa so very much! And I miss you both more than words could ever say.
