Sometimes parenting requires you to find strength you didn’t know you had. One person who exemplified that word ‘strength’ was my beloved Grandmother who sadly passed away last Monday, just 10 days shy of her 94th Birthday.
When thinking about all the things that made Ma so special, so many things come to mind. Most of them tied up in memories of her that I’ll always have from when I was a child through to adulthood. That special way she said my name, the way she could spot a weight gain or loss of less than a kilo with the naked eye, her baking skills, her love of a good ‘yarn’, her dedication to fashion and most of all, her unwavering love and support . She was the quintessential family matriarch, the sun in which we all revolved.
