Things haven’t changed much, but it’s completely different.
I still wish I could fix one thing that is still broken, but I’ve accepted that sometimes things can’t be changed - maybe its for the better; you know how that girl is, she still doesn’t answer her phone!
There isn’t a day that I don’t remember something about before, but at least they’re the good things now. Sometimes simple things remind me of the things we did. Like the other day, I found the little tea-set and I remembered how we used to eat little tiny cookies and drink Coca-Cola with the stuffed animals! :)
It took several people to help me get past the wall of bad memories, but in the process I realized…
Numbers are numbers, this year the 9 means nothing to me and next year, 10 won’t scare me.
"What is 8?"
"8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 58, 68, 78… What are they?"
I am happy today, for the first time in 9 years I’m happy on this day.
Sometimes I wish you were here so I could show you things we’ve done and are doing, but then I realize you are always here - I have remind myself of that sometimes. There are a couple of things that I just know you’re teasing me about, just like Mom does :D
I didn’t stick with my piano lessons, I find that funny that you didn’t either. But I still play and learn by ear.
Hope you know Mig has an awesome new family now, I’m sure you visit her now and then. :)
Happy Birthday Grandmom, “I love you with all my heart”,
