Tomorrow my grandmother turns 96. I pray I inherited some of her longevity genes! Last year, we were fortunate to share her day as we lived about three hours away. This year, we are across the country and I am acutely aware how far from home that is and I wonder if I will ever see her again. Just another reminder that I need to treasure where I am today, this moment.
I spoke with Nannie on the telephone today as we are travelling tomorrow and it brightens your day when the person on the other end is THAT happy to hear your voice. If we had not chosen to relocate for the job assignment on the east coast, my children would never have had the opportunity to know more deeply their great grandmother, grandparents and other family back east. For that, I am grateful.
Speaking of gratitude, tomorrow also marks my daughter's 10 years off chemo anniversary! And yes, if you read my profile- that is an accomplishment for a not quite 12 year old! Fantastic milestone. She underwent her treatment in Calgary, so perhaps it is fitting we are back in the city for this special anniversary. You are where you are meant to be.
