RIP Gran



Dear Gran.


It feels like there is a lot to sift through that is weighted in many shades and hues. Death and Transition.


All of my memories of us were shared and I wish I would have asked you to tell me more about who you were in the times I was not present.  Between your birth and mine.


One important, significant and life shaping quality that I learned from you is this:

There is Room for it All.

Expansive and Evolving, Rooted in Faith, Practiced Un-Self-Consciously, Shared & Apparent by Example, Righteous; Joyful. Any concept of Life, God, and its’ meaning and relationship to a higher purpose for me, through you, is one enriched by these qualities.


I am in Awe.

There is little more that I can say.

I love you & thanks.

  4. So that’s where that saying came from ~ “There’s room for it All” I love that every time you say it.
    Thank you for sharing with us this special parting of your Grandmother, and your tribute to her.
