Till we meet again

My grandmother was a simple woman and she lived just as simply. When I was young, I stayed with her and she gave me the happiest days of my life. When I grew older and no longer lived with her, we started a goodbye routine which took place every single time I left her house. We would wave till we were out of each other's sight. This routine continued throughout the years, even when I became an adult. Even when grandma became weak, she would still make an effort to get to the gate with assistance to wave me. Then one day, she simply could not find the strength to do so and thigns happened so quickly thereafter.

From yesterday on, we no longer have to wave each other or say goodbye at all. She'll always see me from where she is, up above.

Till we meet again, grandma.

All my love,

p/s Please excuse me for a couple of days. I'll be back with posting sometime next week.


  1. i'm so sorry sweet girlie.
    i just lost my beloved aunt a few weeks ago...oddly we had that same ritual, as we would drive away from her house we would stick our hand out the window and wave until we couldn't see each other any more.
    it's very hard, i know. my heart goes out with you....i'm so happy you have such wonderful memories. they will live on in your heart forever.

  2. take comfort that she's in a better place now...and always wave back. Even though you can't see her from where you are, she's till waving to you from heaven..

  3. Take time to grieve, but when the crying is over, wash your face, dress up and live life the way your grandma will want you to. Take care.

  4. My condolences to you. I was also very close to my grandma, I know how bittersweet the pain is. May you find comfort during this time.

  5. I am so sorry. I love how you have such sweet memories of her.

  6. so sorry ... thanks for sharing such a lovely post. wishing you all the best. xo.
