June 3, what memories and what a day it used to be

Once again... a day that will always be remembered, memories that will always be held sacred. A heart that still beats in the hearts of all that are still here. Sometimes you just have to wonder what Granny has been up to there on the other side, but at times there is no wondering what she would be thinking...

Look for dancing all over the skies
today, might just see something special or hear the Thunder drum
it will be Granny and the spirits
celebrating her special day, our beginnings as well,
a day we celebrated her
I still do! Oh she loved surprises and celebrations, and parties, good music and a wrapped present, and a card to shake to see if that green stuff fell out of it!

Dance on beloved Granny
in the lights
of the other side.

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.” 
Winnie the Pooh

Get in that happy place of yours
and block the door
so that no one can get to you or it
Unless invited that is.
best of all things to all of you
if you don't like something ... change it.
If you cannot change it... change your attitude about it
and your
That may be all that is needed to enhance your coping strategy.
then practice practice practice
so give it consistent messages
you will have consistent results
at your command
you command the brain!

Happy Birthday Granny, no one could say it any better than this video. My heart swelled with pride looking at each picture and remembering where and when. I know she is always with us and I know she laughed at seeing her life told so well. Our hearts still ache from her loss and wish she was back with us so we could hold her one more time. I know she is in a good place with Pappy and her boys we will always cherish her memories and hold them dear to our heart. She still hangs around me and gives me a swift kick in the a-- when I need her and she wants to know she wants me to know she is here. I know the angels are just having fun with her as we all did. She was the greatest and still is in my book. There was nothing she would not do for a laugh and to have fun. Just look at the year I wrapped her in Christmas lights, the time she rode our dear friend Johnny Rouse motorcycle all thru Arlington, Va. with her arms wrapped tightly around Johnny. She was loving it as she loved him and now they are together. The way she embraced so many and want forget her OZ she loved so much. A lot of her loved ones went before she did so now they are having one big party. Yes Granny we miss you and your wisdom and great love you gave all of us. Someday your circle will be filled with all of your loved ones. Your 5 daughters are still her and missing you. Blessing to you Sherry for creating a wonderful birthday gift for Granny. She is the wind beneath our wings. Blessings

Dot/Mom/Cob and DRSES--wishing you special blessings today. Very obvious "Granny" enjoyed life to the fullest. Sign me A--nailed it about the apple and the tree. "Wisdom Keepers"---I love that phrase. I wish everyone MORE of the best life has to offer.
