My friend Janette has started a blog hop called Tribute Tuesday. I'm not sure if this will be a weekly thing for me yet but today I had someone to pay Tribute to and wanted to show my support to my fried. I don't think this exactly fits with the light hearted theme theme but it's what's working for me this week.
Today I would like to pay Tribute to Adam's Grammy.
I've known her for about 12 years but I couldn't say I know her really well. She lives in California so I haven't gotten to see her a lot. Neither has Adam of course. Over these past 12 years though she has become MY Grammy too. I never had a Grammy. I have had a Nana and a Grandma but not a Grammy. Each of those women have been special to me in their own way and it's fitting that they have each had their own name. Grammy is an independant feisty woman that lives on her own. She is not an easy woman to get along with but I always felt special when she praised me for something done right or told me how talented I was at certain things. I really wish we could spend more time with her and know her even more ... Especially Adam. She is his last remaining grandparent.
This past Saturday she fell and broke her hip. During surgery Sunday morning she had a massive stroke and a mild heart attack. They haven't been able to wake her up. Today they are doing an MRI to see how extensive the damage was to her brain and we will know more soon I hope. Adam's mother & sisters flew out to CA this morning to be with her.
So while this is a complete downer of a post and to the blog hop parade I think it accomplishes the same as the light hearted posts. It reminds you to hug your friends, husbands, nana's, grammies or whatever a little tighter and say a few more I love yous.
