Memories of Grandma

Grandma in the kitchenIn 3 days, it would’ve been my Grandmother’s birth­day. We cel­e­brated it last year, but then she died a cou­ple of weeks later. My heart imme­di­ately aches for my Grandpa. They were able to cel­e­brate 70 years of mar­riage before she passed away and I won­der how heavy his heart was this past month as year 71 passed with­out her. He’s a strong, strong man — phys­i­cally and emo­tion­ally but I don’t care how tough you are…loosing the love of your life is a soul cruncher.

Junia was a beau­ti­ful, ele­gant lady who could sing the socks off the moon. I can’t hear a 1940s song with­out hear­ing the swoon of her alto voice. She loved to col­lect recipes. She could sure cook, but she always col­lected more recipes “to try” than she could ever do in a life­time. She was a lover of Jesus with a soul that was com­pletely His.

I’m so very thank­ful for the char­ac­ter and lessons she engraved into my life before leav­ing. I gig­gle at some and tear up at oth­ers. I’m a so much more a bet­ter per­son because of being a part of her life.

If my posts reach Heaven…I love you, Grandma…and miss you.…
