Ninety two is a long time to live, and I was lucky enough to have had my grandmother for this long. I was completely taken by surprise when I heard the news today. The old woman singing in the beginning of the Walela song sounds just like my grandmother did when she would sing. I’m so glad that I called her a few weeks ago…..She was the only part of my mother that I had left. I have aunts and uncles and cousins down there but I will never see any of them again. Even my mother said “it will be world war 3 over that farm when mom dies.” I like to think that they are together now.
The girl and I ran all over today…we didn’t even know my grandma was sick. We took Z to the VIP Pet Clinic for her yearly vaccines, it was the first time we ever walked in and there was no wait. I think next week we will take her back and get her micro chipped. I have to break it up into a few visits, and I would like to take advantage of their slow time.
Maybe it was Harvey last night? Maybe it’s because I see bunnies all of the time in the yard? I’m not sure why I am drawn to them but I was good and didn’t buy any of them. The rest of the day was quiet and everything else seems insignificant after receiving the news…..Zia
