  2. I remember a time of simplicity where visiting my grandmother meant sweet biscuits, sugary snacks and sodas with a spoon full of ice cream.
    There was always a jigsaw underway on the table or bench with that unique smell that was always my Nans home.
    I was fortunate enough to see my Nan last year and I’m so grateful I was able too do so.
    With the lose of someone I have loved in my life, I always remember them in their glowing beauty, how they walked and how they carried themselves through life. My Nan was a proud and strong women whom lived her life and existed in this world. Its the song words of Tanya Tucker, “ Bring my flower now”. That sit strong in my mind. We shouldn’t wait for someone to leave this world, we should appreciate and worship them now, while they are living.
