Last night my grandma passed away peacefully during a nap, while Jaxson was keeping her company. I am so happy for her because I know she is no longer in pain. I also know that my grandma was a strong, well put together, active, lady that was full of youth most of her life. So we are at peace because we know that she did not want to live the way she has for the last few years.
But wow it is still hard. This morning I as a sat and had positive reflection of the impact my grandma has had on my life I realized that, for the first time in my life, my grandma is no longer going to be there.
My grandma was there like a second mom for me. She came to every game, every trip, every award ceremony, and she was there through every difficult time. When we had no place to live she was there to open up her heart and home. Most dad's take there sons to there first ever baseball game. Not only did my grandma take me to my first Tigers game (that sparked my forever love of sports), but she took me to the majority of the games I went to as a kid. There are not many big memories in my life that my grandma was not a part of.
So I am happy for her today, but doing a whole lot of ugly crying along the way.
Rest in peace Grandma I love you a bushel and a peck!
