The Little Things In Life...

Isn't it sometimes nice how little things remind us of someone that we have loved and lost in our lives?

Today would have been my Grandma's birthday. I loved this woman more than I could say in words. She was the one adult in my life , growing up as a kid , that I knew loved me. I was definitely a Grandmas girl...til the day she died and took a piece of my heart with her.

Anyway, I can remember she always wore her wedding ring, and even though there was no single diamond in it, just a row of very small chips in the front, it somehow always seemed to twist around on her finger and the worn, tiny gold band was all to be seen.
I would always fix it for her, cause it drove me nuts...lol
Sometimes I would see her just playing with it twisting it around as she seemed to be in a far away place in her mind.

I now have her wedding ring and after many years, I started wearing it sometimes. When my daughter got married in Jan, I let her wear it (JUST for the ceremony) as her something old, I have been wearing it since then.

Today just about everytime I have looked at my hand it has been flipped around to showing just the thin, worn gold band......... and closer to my knuckle just like it used to be on her hand. At one point I could have almost sworn that I was looking at her hand........I remembered it so vividly...it sure made me miss her even more today. But it also brought back so many wonderful, heartfelt memories.

when it rains out in the bush (forest) where I work, you can smell all the scents from the differance tree's, myrtle, sassafrass, blackwood, the list goes on, but it really makes you realise just how precious this eco system of ours is
