I've been away from blogging for a little while for a few reasons but the one heartbreaking thing that kept my head and heart elsewhere was losing my beautiful grandma (in fact she was more like my mama). Really, she had a wonderful, full very long life and was surrounded by her loving family who all adored her. She was doing yoga up until her 90th birthday and was as intelligent and inspirational as anyone could ever be. She very peacefully passed away in her sleep in her 99th year, just a few weeks short of her 100th birthday. Grandma was laid to rest dressed in the gorgeous dress she had bought to wear for her birthday party :)
Her funeral was a celebration of her life and it was so good to see so many cousins, aunties, uncles,friends etc that we haven't seen for along time. Charlie came to her funeral and was wonderful throughout the whole ceremony, he said he wanted to say goodbye too...sob..
