Dear Grandma

Dear Grandma,

Today would have been your birthday.  I know I use past tense, truthfully I wish I was using the present tense.  I miss you.  More than you’ll ever know, I miss you.  If you were still here you’d have the pleasure of meeting your grandson-in-law and your great {step}granddaughter.  Unfortunately I guess I didn’t get my head out of my butt in time to find him while you were still alive, but at that time he was overseas stationed in Afghanistan, so it wouldn’t have done much good anyway.

I actually went back to school.  Something I always said I wanted to do, but at the same time wasn’t real sure I was going too, lol, even though I wanted an MBA.  I guess I did go a different route though.  I wish you were here because I would so pick your brain and have you help me study!  Oddly enough just like my other grandma, that’s one thing you loved to do.

I traded off my car the same week I paid it off.  You always said you loved that car and always knew that was me when you saw that car.  Well I got a nice car now, that I really love, even though I’ve had to take it back to the dealership a few times for a speaker malfunction and now some sensor that’s gone bad.  I guess that’s what you get for buying a brand new car that is in its first years of that particular body style.

Unfortunately you’d see a few things that you weren’t so happy about, but in all honesty you’d still be here with us, and I wish you were.  I can’t even begin to tell you all about everything that’s happened since you passed away.  Sadly enough it dawned on me this morning that it has been a little under 5 years since you passed away and I still miss you every day!

Happy Birthday Grandma.

  1. I don't think we ever stop missing them. I lost my grandpa in 12/2010 and my grandma in 12/2011. I miss both of them so much.

    Hugs and Love today girlie!

  2. I wish I would have talked more with my Grandmothers. Oh the stories they could have told me. I wish many things. I love your letter. Maybe I will do that!
