My Sweet Grams

My dear sweet grams passed away this week. She was truly an amazing woman, friend and grandma. As most of you know we had a very special relationship. I was with her holding her hand as she passed. Yesterday, was her funeral. It was a beautiful fall day in the country where she grew up. I was entranced as i watched the clouds and leaves falling from the trees. I know she is with me, in my heart, and memories...and as i learned a few days ago, she is still teaching me lessons. Everyone that knew my grams loved her. As far back as i can remember she would take me to the family cemetery and we would decorate the graves with flowers. When I was 5 or so she said to me, "will you come put out flowersfor me?" i said, "sure grandma, but someone will have to drive me." How lucky for me, that it would be 30 years later... I have so many fantastic memories of my grams. I will be telling Molly stories of her grams for the rest of my life. Molly was also very important to grams. For those of you that did not know, many folks called my grams, Janey...hence Molly's middle name Jayne. :)
Molly and I went to see grams several times a month, it made my heart so happy to see the love between my grams and my sweet baby girl. The night before my grams passed, Molly and I went to see her. We knew she was not feeling well, but really did not realize how little time we had left with her. I will never forget, Molly snuggling her and bed and saying, "i love you grams....."
That love will live on, in me, my family and sweet baby Molly.

39 years

my parents are celebrating their 39th annivesary this week, how amazing!! they are a wonderful example.
i saw this quote and it made me think of the love birds.

The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.

Biker Babe

Molly knows that when you ride a bike you need a helmet. Here she is riding the trike at Grandma and Papa's house.

Look of love

Molly and i went to unity village for a photo shoot with her cousins. Carina took tons of photos and of course they were all looking different directions. i will try to post some of her photos as they come availible.
This one however, was Molly's sweet little face when she first saw her cousins, she just loves them!!

Gettin' Purty

Fall Fest 2010

When my family first moved to LS in 1990, one of the first things we did was Missouri Town's fall fest, i remember going when Molly was 6 weeks old, (reference october 2008 blog) and we went again this past weekend. My parents took us, and the girls as you can see had a wonderful time!! Molly loved looking at the sheep, chickens, ox and donkeys. Eating kettle corn and going on a tractor ride and hoping hay bale to hay bale were just some of the highlights.
