My Sweet Grandmother.


Over the weekend, my grandma passed away.  It is a great loss for all who knew her.
I am grateful in my life to be surrounded by amazing people, and she was certainly one of them.  

I have learned a lot from my grandma, from make-up and clothes to cleaning under my bed.  The rest of my house might not be clean, but under my bed usually is- thanks to my grandma.  That and the bathroom sink (thanks to my mom). 
One thing I have been thinking about my grandma is her varicose veins.  I know that sounds strange, but as a kid when I saw her legs, I never thought those veins were a bad thing.  I always thought it meant that her legs were extra strong.  She was an athlete- she played tennis, golf, and I think everything in between.  I thought those veins showed how hard she had worked.  It wasn't until I was older that I found out people consider them unattractive.  I don't.  

I know that I will see my grandma again, and I hope that I will live my life with as much spunk, determination, and love as my grandma had.
