Tears of......a Connection


left Eddies place this past weekend and I have been visiting with my sister and I also stopped and got my daughter from her fathers house......

so far everything is going great......

one downfall I have is an addiction to the game World of Warcraft.....a game I have access to when I am at my sisters house.....been forcing myself to play very little on there and to just let loose and have some fun with all the kids especially my daughter, since it has been a while since I have seen any of them at all.....and also with my sis as the same goes for her as well....visiting wise I mean...I love em all and we need our times together.....

I did have to go through my grandmothers house this weekend and get it on film....she passed away a few years ago and now the family has decided to sell her house and land.....I walked away with a clock I remember from way back when that she had it is a travel wind up clock and when I stayed at her house I always counted the ticks and tocks to get to sleep.....

when I saw that after all this time no one else had grabbed it as a memory I was thrilled....I immediately took it outside and cried as when she first passed on that was the one thing I thought of asking the rest of the family for as a memory of my grandmother........

the tears came hard and fast but they felt good and I felt good that i still had some sort of connection with her after all this time.......now I keep it wound and count the tick tocks..sometimes I still get a lil teary eyed but thats to be expected.......

I also got a great Rockwell print too....now I need to take that in and have it matted and framed....

even my daughter got to pick a few things out even though my grandma is someone she never really got to know for she was too young....but we are getting some photos together to share with the children so they can "see" her and then we can have story sharing time so they can get a feel for her too, of how she was when she was alive and all that jazz....actually we are all looking forward to it........

well guess thats my update for now not too much else going on so far but I am sure there will be....there usually is when we are all together.....

Hope all is well with everyone else here in Blogland will try to write again soon............take care and be safe

Sometimes all we can ask for is memories. And some of those are so lovely
