My grandma was such an amazing woman. She worked hard all her life and no one can ever remember a time when she complained or said anything bad about another person. She always spoke with kind and gentle words. Whenever any of us, the grandchildren, were around her, she made us feel like we were so special and important. All of us were her favorite!
One of our family traditions is our annual family reunion. We have been having the reunions since I can remember. My grandma and granddad just love them and wanted us to keep up with the tradition, even after they were gone.
The responsibility of the reunion rotates between each of my mother's siblings each year. This year, my mom's family is in charge of the reunion. Basically, that means, me and my mom. And, as she and my dad just sold their house this week and have to be out before July, that pretty much leaves me in charge. I have been feeling very stressed about it. Just now, as I was sitting at my computer, the picture of my grandma rotated through my screen saver. It made me think that she would NEVER have complained about such a thing. She would have loved planning something special for the family to do. This is how I want to be.
I need to buck up and be more like Grandma "Bill". I know that she will be cheering me on from her "luxury suite" in heaven. Ok Grandma...I can do this! Let the fun begin!
