Many thanks to everyone for your prayers offered on behalf of the life transition of my grandmother Dorothy Mae Johnson Gartin. I posted an audio blog on Cinchcast below that includes a poem about “Nanan”. It is featured in my new book That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery (available on Amazon.com).
My grandmother Dorothy was 97 1/2 years young. She was the last grandparent of mine on earth. It feels really strange to not have a grandparent alive. Time is something else. It moves us forward and leaves us with opportunities to remember our ancestors. I have been doing a lot of remembering this weekend. I am grateful that I had an opportunity to know all of my grandparents. They each left me with wonderful gifts of love, character, stories, and a rich family history. I am blessed to have their spirits with me.
Please share any memories of your grandmothers or grandparents in the comment section below.
Enjoy your second week of 2010!
Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for all those ancestors who came before me,
