"Enjoy the little things in life ~ one day you'll wake up and realize they were the big things"

I'm currently making very last minute plans for my sister and I to head 'back east' for a couple of days.  We lost our spunky, stubborn, no-nonsense, one of a kind, very special (90 year old) “Grammy” today. I will forever cherish fond memories of card games, vanilla ice cream (w/gobs of peanut butter mixed into it!), homemade relish, the creaking of her recliner, green olives, crossword puzzles, trips to the “jug milk store”, front yard porch swings, May’s hamburgers and the smell of trash burning (and BenGay ointment – but not together!) when I think of her.  I’m sad to have lived so far away from her for so many years, but thankful for the time I did have with her
