I don’t even know where to start with this post, so I’ll just say it: My grandma passed away yesterday morning.
I consider myself extremely blessed because this was my first grandparent to die and I’m nearly 32. Most people have lost at least one or sometimes all their grandparents by my age. I am also very blessed to have had such a wonderful, loving and amazing grandma for all these years.
I was not nearly as close to her as I am to my other grandma, and that sort of makes me feel bad. They lived far away and we didn’t get to see them very often.
She was very sick with Alzheimer’s and kidney failure, so it was a mercy for her to pass when she did. She was no longer herself.
She is now in heaven with her little boy, her parents, her brothers and with all those who have gone before. She no longer feels pain or has memory loss. She is at peace.
I do not feel sorrow for myself. Sure, I will miss her, but I am so happy that she is in a better place. I feel sorrow for my mom and my aunt who have lost their mom..and most of all for my Grandpa who has lost his wife of almost 60 years.
It felt wrong/crass to do an outfit post and mention all this as if it were just an aside….so, I am giving it it’s own post. I’m not sure when I will get back to posting outfits….maybe tomorrow. We shall see. We are making out plan to travel to Kentucky for the funeral. I also have my best friend’s wedding to attend in Atlanta on Wednesday. It’s going to be a busy week.
