I thought for a while about whether or not to post about this, but I figured since this blog chronicles my life in all aspects I would do it. My sweet Nana (great grandmother) is slowly slipping away from us. Her health has been deteriorating quickly and it doesn't look like she is going to be here much longer. I'm so grateful we have this Mother's Day for the family to come together and spend time with her, but we all know it will be her last.
Today we will remember what an amazing woman she was. She was always incredibly active and was on a bowling league well into her 80's. She always kept up with me and my sisters and loved taking us to the park and playing ball in her backyard. She was from the South and loved her sweet tea (so did I!) and I always liked her cinnamon toast the best because she used extra butter ;) She has lived over 30 years without her husband only proving further what an incredibly strong, independent person she is, something I admire incredibly.
I want to wish my Mom a very Happy Mother's day, and I want you to know I see the strength and love I see in Nana in you as well. I want you to remember that we are all an extension of Nana; she lives in each one of us and always will. May her strength help us all through this difficult time. Love you Mom!
I hope you all have an incredible Mother's Day and don't forget to give your Mom an extra hug today, you never know when it will be the last.
