My Support & Rock...My Grandmother.

I give a lot of credit to my mother's, yes I've had a couple of mom's. :) But, when I sit and really think about the make-up of my life and who were my supporters from day one like my (mother's). There is one person that is most incredible woman ever, my grandmother. She remarried close to around when I was born to her now husband Herman. She has always been MorMor to me since I took my first breath on this world. 


I'm writing you this letter to remind you of how much of an impact you have had on my life. You are an amazing, loving and caring woman. From the day I was born you were there. You have introduced me to so many things and told me that I can do anything I put my mind too. You taught me to sew, bake, play piano, shop for a good buy. You are the most unselfish person I know in this world, and your love is something everyone should have in their life. 

I remember when we bought my first pair of saddle shoes and I wanted you to make me a poodle skirt to match. You have spent countless nights of sewing dresses all night, so that I could show off my new dress for church the next day. Memories, like these, are ones I will never forget and will remember for the rest of my life. 

When I was little, I have so many memories with you I can hardly pick just one. I used to come and visit you almost every weekend. We would go shopping, the movies or get lost in your sewing room. I'm sure it was easier when I was younger and sweeter. We went out for ice cream, or to the beach. 

As I got older, I became more and more independent, but I still had time to give to you. Most recently in the last 5 years, since that day I moved in with you. I was a very angry and broken person. You helped me pick up the pieces of my falling apart life. I swear if it wasn't for you, I would not be the person I am today. No matter how depressed and angry I was, you still tried to be my MorMor no matter what. I have to apologize, because there were some occasions, where I didn't treat you well or was angry at you for no reason. I'm sorry, for those moments, but I'm glad you didn't give up on me. You took care of me and made sure I had everything I needed. Even when I moved to California, you still helped me. Although, you freaked everytime you saw in the newspaper or news that we were going to get 2 Feet of snow and you called me to check to make sure I wasn't burried, you did it because you cared. I know at the time I would say, " Oh MorMor, don't be silly." and we laughed about it, I know that you did it because you care and love me. 

You are a worrier, and overly cautious person, but these are your best qualities. God gave you those qualities for a reason, and you have always used them for everyone's best interest, including mine. You are a irreplaceable person and I want to remind you how special you are to me. You have had such an impact on my life, and I want you to know that. We've always joked that you will live to be 100 or more and I would have to tape your crumb of body to my dashboard of a car, but who knows by then they might have something even better than tape. I just wanted to say I love you MorMor, and thanks for being there for me no matter what.
