This picture represents something I never thought possible. For my daughters to meet my last living grandparent- my dad's mom. She lives quite a way from my parent's house in Ohio, in Kentucky. Having them finally meet meant so much to me. Especially because my other grandma died before I was married and had kids.
This is my precious niece Rory. I miss her already, and I've only been gone 2 days! I feel like I'm her grandma instead of her aunt because I love her so much! I miss this stage with my kids and I could just follow her around all day, getting her to try to say silly things that sound so cute coming from a one year old who can't quite say them yet.
This picture was taken last June, when my parents were on their last visit here. My girls had recently discovered Star Wars, and while we only had one movie, my dad went out and bought the other 5 for them to watch together. I never imagined my GIRLS and my dad watching Star Wars together, but that's what they're doing in these pictures.
One phone call really does change your life. It will eventually happen to us all, probably more than once- the phone call no one wants to get. Give more hugs, longer kisses, more calls and visits and special memories, that's really all there is...time.
