I've been sick (again), so Mom came over with a mini-care package for me. Along with apple juice and zicam she brought me Grandma's Afghan Blanket. Grandma was working on it for me when she passed several years ago. Sadly she was unable to complete it before the Fates took her. Mom learned how to crochet so that she could finish it.

After Mom left I snuggled down under it to watch a movie. It was only moments before I realized that even with time and Mom's handling, the afghan still smelled like Grandma. I cried as hard as the day she passed. I didn't think I'd still miss her as much as I do. I never knew my Dad's family, so I was incredibly close to Grandma (although oddly I never made the same connection with my aunts). She was a school teacher, so while summers with her were supposed to be vacation it was really just casual summer school. It was worth every minute. I owe my love of history and literature to her.

It's been a few hours now and I'm still a little teary, but it's happy memory tears now instead of sadness. I'll always be thankful for everything she brought into my life.
