Happy Birthday to my Grannie

Today is my grannies birthday; she would have been 91. I miss her so much. She was my world. I have so many beautiful memories of her. She taught me so many things. I felt nothing but unconditional love from her.
The things I miss:
Daily phone calls to see how I am.
Fixing her hair.
Eating her food.
Watching her can pickled beets.
Working in her yard.
Listening to her tell me about the bad weather to come only to find out she has been listening to a Chicago station that is 3 states away!
Her perfume.
Her love.
Her hands.

I wish that she could have seen me become a Grannie. I have very large shoes to fill and I work hard everyday to be the Grannie that she was to me.
