lemon drops and red hots

Six years ago I lost someone very dear to me. The person I stayed at least one night a week with.

The one who always had a jar of lemon heads and red hots on the back of her stove for tea. Who would make me cinnamon toast to dunk in our tea for breakfast. Who would save me and tell me the truth. The person who kept old fashioned mac and cheese in her freezer so that I could always have it for lunch if I swung over.

My grandma. She was 92 , brave, and always took care of me.

The one who when I called her 22 pregnant scared and alone she loved me and hoped it was a girl. Who loved my little girl and couldn't wait for us to come to show off her granddaughter.

Who loved these pics I took of us with my sister and my niece. She was sassy and bossy and set in her ways and I loved her soo much that I named my second daughter after her :) I miss you grandma but I think I made a grave mistake naming fire monster after you because she acts just like you lol.
