happy birthday nonny!

today would have been my sweet grandma's 80th birthday! i still miss her so much! i remember our phone conversation we had a year ago today. i called to wish her a happy birthday and was so bummed that we were unable to be there with her. bill and i had originally planned on surprising her and spending the day with her, but miley had rsv and we didn't feel comfortable traveling with her being sick. so when i called nonny and told her that our original plans of coming to surprise her had failed, she laughed and said, "well, just don't worry about it! you can plan a surprise party for my 80th birthday next year!" she was so cute.. and had she been here, we definitely would have had a surprise party for her:) instead, ella kate and josiah sang her happy birthday and sent some balloons all the way up to heaven! happy birthday nonny! we love you and miss you so much!

  2. Oh my goodness how sweet! I'm just sitting here crying. I remember the newness of death and how tough it is on certain days. I'm so sorry you're feeling that. I think you're doing an awesome job incorporating the kids and teaching them how to grieve. You're a great mom, Katie!
