Thinking of my Grandma

Today I have been thinking of my Grandma. Today would have been her 97th birthday.

Grandma - Remembering Grandma - Nurse - MemoriesI am also thinking of my Grandma as I needed to use something today that had belonged to her.

I really do not like sewing buttons on. I would rather ask a favor or pay someone to sew buttons on, but in these times of social distancing I had to sew it back on myself 🙂

I had some nice memories of my Grandma as I performed my little repair job.

Perhaps the thread on the button wore out today just so I would have some good memories of my Grandma on her birthday.

  1. I love using the things left to me by family members – special crockery from one granny, a rolling pin from another. Whenever I use one of these items I use it as an opportunity to share a story about them with my children so that their memory lives on.
