Always The Same
It’s always the same every year… I never get my grandmothers birthday right. She is my mother’s mother and the only grandparent I have left. I feel like such an idiot but after 37 years of getting it wrong I'm getting used to it! A birthday to my grandparents on my mom’s side was never any big deal… it was maybe a card with 5 or 10 dollars in it and from me, would be a card I had made or later bought that just said happy birthday. No cake no song just a card. So I guess that’s part of why I don’t remember the right days for them… I have no idea of my grandpa’s birthday… none!
Anyway yesterday was her birthday… I call her Grandmama. When I was younger we had a joke…. She would call me “sugar foot” lol so funny to think about! So I started to call her grandmamma-foot! She gave me this card for whatever year birthday it was and this particular one is signed grandmamma-foot!
87… that’s how old she is! Unfortunately I don’t get to talk to her… she and my mom live together so no mom, no grandmamma… :~( that’s the way it is… I don’t like it and it’s not fair and if I want to talk to grandmamma and not my mom I should be able to! But…. That’s not how it is… life is such.
She is very funny and she and I had some really funny times together… she showed my river dance! We watched together and talked! She made the most amazing brown sugar cookies! She has a brilliant sense of humour! She is a strong woman and I don’t know how some things in her life she made it through… but she did! She is the most patient person I have even known. I know that she knows that I would be wishing her a Happy Birthday one day late as usual!
I have taken a photo of this necklace before but I don’t think I have anything else that belongs to her! So it will have to do! The card she gave me and the cat paw is obligatory!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
