I often think about our relationship and wonder how it evolved into what it is today. Without trying to complicate or confuse anyone who is reading this, all I can come up with is that some of us are born with strong family ties and some are not. I am the type of person who is welcoming of everyone and anyone and my motto has long been more the merrier. I have strong family ties and always cherished my time with my aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents.
My Gram has always been "that" person. She has always been there for me and I know that I can go to her with whatever it may be. Not many can say they have their own personal cheerleader. I can and she is my cheerleader. In all of my adventures and any place I have ended up she is the one person who has always come to visit me. I saw her a year ago when I was home in Oregon and she is in New Jersey until next week and I am looking forward to making some more memories with her. She has never been to Amish country and I am taking her this weekend. We are going to take the train into NYC. IShe is so easy going and up for anything. She is the one who taught me how to crochet and for that I am thankful.
I want to thank my gram for being who she is and for guiding me and at the same time letting me be me!
