Today is the One Year Anniversary of the Death of my MawMaw. I miss MawMaw every single day.........the pain of her Death is still very new. I no longer cry everyday, but there are times it hits me & the pain is unbearable. It's funny how quickly time passes..........It seems like yesterday I was flying home for her funeral. MawMaw's funeral was bittersweet. I had a great time with my family. I spent time with family members I have not seen in 15+ years. At times, I forgot MawMaw died and I thought "I have not talked to MawMaw in so long, I should call her"......A couple of times, I actually picked up the phone, dialed her number, and thought it would be great to talk to her today.........only to have PawPaw pick up the phone, and then I remember she is no longer with us. WOW, talk about a shock. I laugh about it now, but the first time it was hard for me to deal with it. It's funny, but the home my Grandparents shared is still MawMaw's house. Sorry PawPaw, it will always be MawMaw's house. ;) Praise God for the Wonderful Life Rita lived........I am very blessed to have had MawMaw in my life. She taught me how to love. MawMaw, I miss you.
