Happy Mother’s Day Granny

Happy Mother’s Day Granny. Without your love and support, I would not be alive today. I went to live with my grandparents at 14 years old, a troubled teen with a traumatic background I kept secret from them.

Being raised by people from the “Great Generation” was a blessing to me. Hard work, accountability, honesty, and doing your part were some of the core beliefs. I believe the example they set for me has helped me greatly in life.Β 

My Granny’s life was especially difficult, she lost her eyesight at age 3, and her father died at age 9, and after my father was born, her husband left her with no support.

When my dad was young, She had two dresses, she would come home from her shift and wash the dress she wore. The next day she had a clean one while the other dried. She walked miles to the trolly every day, I can only imagine how dreadful the cold months were for her.

She raised my father alone for 10 years until she married my Gramps. She was in love with my Gramps until the day she died.

My Granny looked after me from the day I was born and is the only mother I acknowledge.

I miss you from the bottom of my heart and will see you soon.Β 

She loved her purple rose bush and the photo reminded me of her.
