So, so sorry Caroline. I love that your gorgeous grandmother is at the top of this blog- it shows how she must look with pride upon everything you do, and she must have been one of the people who inspired and supported you, so it seems only right that she's the first thing us readers see. Thankyou, Caroline's grandma, for helping Caroline to be a brilliant wife and mother, and a genius at skincare who has made so many hundreds of people feel happy in their skin.
That was very well said. I was going to leave a comment with saying something similar, but you wrote it with beauty & grace. There's really nothing further I could add:)
Thank you so much Ladies. I am usually positive and embrace the memories but this just triggered something! xx
Caroline - I hope that I mean that much to my own granddaughters when I pass. What a lovely woman she must have been.
She was literally the kindest person ever. Literally.
Its okay to cry and miss somebody... It is a heathy way of showing that you still care and love the person, even though she isnt here anymore. Be strong Caroline, she is watching over you :). One day the tears will stop rolling and smiles will replace them.
Thanks Kristina x
I was super close with my Grandma and I miss her every day. I feel like some of the biggest decisions I've made in life were inspired by her, and she was always so vocal about supporting me and pushing me to be a strong independent woman. I love that you have this picture, how great is your Nana's skirt?
That's what triggered me to be honest. She bloody loved that skirt and used it as her housework skirt in later years. used to crack us up. 'You wearing that bloody fish skirt again?!' :)
She will always be with you Caroline, you carry her in you.
I do. :)
I like to think that these little things happen as our loved ones reminder to us that we are not alone. I think that at times when we may be particularly stressed or worried they put a little visual i front of us to take comfort from. I'm not at all religious or superstitious but I know these things have happened to me. Perhaps it's mums way of letting you know that she's with you and proud of who you're and what you're doing and that you are never really without her. Xxxx
Wow... Love that skirt. And, great photo
Oh Caroline, I know so well what you feel that your post brought tears to my eyes. I was so close to my grandparents, and I miss them terribly as well. I feel so blessed to have been gifted with having them as grandparents and I just dream about when time will come in heaven when I can hug them again.
My granma left us seven years ago and I miss her everyday since she died. I understand your sorrow and your feelings. xxx
