She would have grinned and said, "I remember too!" when I told her how my 7 year old wanted me to roll her hair in sponge curlers so she would have pretty curls for school today. More memories as I had her kneel in front of me watching t.v. with a cup of water to dip the comb in to dampen her hair.
She would have said, "I told you so!" when I told her how very right she was that the love for a little boy can totally overwhelm and knock your socks off and that girls are special and you will love them like no tomorrow, but there is just something about a boy. She would have loved her 1st and only grandson like nobody's business.
She would have tenderly brushed my tears away and said, "It's all gonna be okay Lanie." when I cried and told her there isn't a day that goes by I don't think of her and miss her so deeply.
She would have wanted me to smile, get busy, create and enjoy this precious life that I have been blessed with.
And so I will.
Happy birthday Mama...
