My Grandma....

There aren't many times when I get overwhelmed by sadness. I have a great life with so many blessings and wonder. In fact, if rainbows chose to turn into fireworks over my life it wouldn't be surprising. But today, for some reason, I am having sad feelings. There are remembrance of my grandma that I can't put behind me.
I think it started with me hearing "The Old Rugged Cross"
and I thought it was her favorite but turns out she loved...

My sadness has nothing to do with hymns or being Christian, or what side of the spectrum my beliefs lie. It was this... I love my parents. I love my in-laws. I miss my grandparents. I miss the grandparents I never knew. I am sad today. Why? I don't know.

Being without those you love whether they are next to you, far away or in the next dimension; family is family. Friends are friends. We know many people. How many do you love? How many are important to you? Treasure those who treasure you back. Even better, treasure those whom you don't even know. They may be worth it.
