A year ago today, my grandmother passed away.  She lived a full, happy life. She was surrounded by family who adored her.  With my grandad, she built a family that loves and respects each other, and passes that down through each generation.  She spent time with us.  Each of us knew we were loved and knew we were important.  We could be anything and do anything. 

She taught us so many things.  Mostly, she taught us how to care about people.  First, care about yourself and your appearance and your home.  Treat yourself with pride.  Then, treat everyone else the way you want to be treated.  Everyone matters. Be considerate. Be loving.  Simple as that.  Of course, these aren't really things she outright said to us, but she showed us.  Everything I ever learned from her can be linked back to that one, all important lesson.

Lin, I can see so much of you in this picture of your grandmother! Thank you for sharing. Processing loss is always difficult, but this is a lovely tribute.
