The cake, strawberry - just as Bear said it should be.
Days later, the phone rang. "Great Gram has passed" my mother in law said, continuing with details about the funeral this week.
"Your Great, Great Grandmother has died" I told the kids, next day over breakfast.
"Is that the lady that Gram took me to see?" asked Bear, "The one who was 100 and sooooo old she couldn't even get out of bed, or walk, or talk?"
"Yes dear" I said, "that's her. Great Great Gram Brown". "Oh," continued Bear, "Well I still have a Grandma and a Great Grandma and Emma was waiting for her so I guess everything is just fine."
Oh Yes my sweet girl. A long and happy life ended by age is what I would call 'just fine'. And, although it took me a bit of time to find this picture, it was worth it to remember when she could walk, and talk, and hold newborn baby girls with the love of family still intact in her mind and heart.
What are you show and telling?
