hearts and flowers.



happy valentine's day ! no. it isn't valentimes. today i remember my grandmother, my nanny. seven years ago on a sunday valentine's day, nanny passed away. i like to think that she went home and i'll see her again someday. i miss her something terrible and wish i could have her back for just a little while. today i'll remember the way she loved me unconditionally. she overlooked a lot just to love me and that says quite a lot. she is one that i truly never could imagine life without, and in a way, she is still with me and always will be.
i miss you nanny and i'll always love you.

So beautiful and amorous words to your Nanny, Jac. She looks a nice and lovely person! Sorry about your lost. I miss so much my grandmother too.

Loss hits us hard around the holidays and I believe the ones we love are never far. They are too much apart of us to be.

What a beautiful post. My grandmoter (who I also called Nanny) passed away seven years this June. So, yes, I know exactly how you feel. Exactly.

Maybe your Nanny and my MeeMaw know each other in heaven.

Such a poignant memory for Valentines Day...I understand, dear jac...when these things happen that are so devistating, you can never look at that day the same, ever ever again...

I believe your Nanny is still with you and always will be...i your heart and in your sweet loving memories of her...I'm glad you had such a lovely dear Grandmother.

Thanks for visitng my site. Here I am returning the favour. It is so hard to loose a loved one and your nanny looked not unlike my own, who we called Nana... If only they were still around us now hey? Well, who knows? Maybe they are!

Oh, that's so sweet. I lost one of my Grandmas a few years back and I miss her terribly, too. But it's nice to have such good memories.
