It feels awkward not having my grandmothers here to call, just because they were on my mind, and to celebrate their birthdays and holidays.
I miss trying to find just the right floral arrangement and gifts for them. I miss their smiles and laughs. I miss their side eye when I would get “beside” myself. I miss hearing them tell about their past, their hopes and dreams, and the wisdom passed to me as counsel. I miss them dearly.
Happy Mother’s Day to my maternal grandmother, Maxine B. Stephens, and my paternal grandmother, Dorrisene N. Foreman. I know that you’re here but I wish that you were HERE to hug and hold hands.
I love you Mamacine and Mama!!!!!!!!
Love you always, near and far…
