Today is a sad day for me. My great-grandmother passed away last night. She's been in a nursing home in Georgia for more than ten years now and I've only seen her sporadically when my sister/s and I would make a weekend trip to visit. For a long time new her mind had been going and they called in hospice before Christmas.
MawMaw taught me to sew and one wonderful summer I spent every afternoon with her working on a quilt. I am soo happy to have that quilt. Her son, my grandfather, passed away several years ago, and I can't help but think of one when I think of the other. I have been very lucky to have the grandparents and great-grandparents that I've had.
I'd already been planning to link-up with Musical Mondays but I picked a new song that kinda sums up the way most of us feel when we lose the older generations in our family.
