my aunt posted this on facebook and i thought i would share it with you in remembrance of my sweet nonny:)
If roses grow in heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me
Place them in my Nonny's arms & tell her they're from me
Tell her that I love & miss her & when she turns to smile
Place a kiss upon her cheek & hold her for a while
Because remembering her is easy , I do it everyday
There's an ache within my heart that will never go away.
Happy Mother's Day in Heaven!

man.. i miss her! i think about her often and so does ella kate. we were coming home from kroger 2 days ago and out of nowhere ella kate said in the back seat, "momma, i really miss nonny!" i replied, "oh, i do too! what do you think she is doing right now?" without hesitation she said, "she's probably holding a baby!" this got my water works going... about a month before my grandma passed away, my sister erin lost a baby at almost 20 weeks. this was devastating to my entire family and i remember talking to nonny on the phone about it and listening to her cry and cry. erin and eric don't find out the sex of their babies, they like to be surprised. so the whole time she is pregnant, we call her baby "hershey"... meaning he or she:) well, it is comforting to us all to think that nonny is in heaven with my grandad and hershey. obviously, we have never talked about hershey with ella kate, because it would be too confusing because she was/is so small when it happened. but, for her to know that and say that just melted my heart:) god is so good! but in a split second my tears went to laughter. i told her, "yes! i believe nonny is holding a baby!" then ella kate said, "and maybe tomorrow she is gonna ride a bike!" haha... oh, the innocence:)
she also said this prayer this week, "dear god, thank you for this day. thank you for my family and my friends and please let nonny come back home soon! amen!"
