My Granny Owned the World
Today's the funeral in New Jersey for my much loved and adored and adored and loved Granny. + I'm a little down that I'm not there I had a million things I was gonna write about her today - all about her amazing, full, life; all about the things I learned from her; all about the wonderful, loving family she created; all about the most most beautiful woman I've ever seen and the beauty she saw in the world and the beauty she gave it. But I can't do it. I'd just screw it up today - it's still so unbelievable and I still miss her too much to not just fall out all over the page.
Today, I have to hold it together. I have a wonderful shop + just the coolest, nicest people coming by to shop + say hi + let me into their lives for a bit, and I need to give them 100%. She's with me today even though I can't be with her + I have to be happy about that and relish the fruit of my labor which is in turn, the fruit of my mother's labor and the fruit of my Granny's labor and I know they're with me today - in my heart and in my hands. But I will tell you all about her one day because she really was just that good.
