I wish I was with all of my family today. It is my Nanny’s (my dad’s mother) birthday, she passed away 4 years ago. Today is also the Annual Horseshoe Tournament in memory of my Retta (my mom’s mother), who’s birthday was Tuesday, she passed away 2 years ago.
Best friends and amazingly stubborn women. It makes me extremely sad that my girls will never know the love that they had for their family and friends. They are always remembered greatly. Sadly hubby didn’t have the chance to meet my Nanny as we met a number of months after her passing.
A has my Nanny’s name as one of her middle names, as do I. B has Retta’s name as her middle name.
I have pictures of them in my home and A knows who they are and I’ll make sure that B does too when she is old enough. I’ll tell them stories, and let them know they are loved by two angels.
Today I am going to hold my girls and hubby closer and enjoy every minute because the passing of these beautiful women reminds us of how quickly everything can be lost too soon.
Happy birthday to you!!
