Friday Four



This week we said goodbye to my beloved Mormor. My family and I were so lucky to have her in our lives.

It’s with a very heavy heart and a lot tears that I say goodbye to my Mormor. My beautiful grandmother slipped quietly away earlier this month after battling the awful disease, dementia. My Mormor would have to be one of the most influential people in my life. She taught me so many of the life lessons I still carry today, and have passed onto my daughters. She taught me that a woman can be strong and intelligent yet feminine and glamorous. She taught me the old ways of the yesterday world - cooking, baking, sewing yet she told me I could do anything I wanted, and be anyone I wanted to be. She was liberal in her thinking and always ahead of her time. She was worldly and knowledgeable and always had the right advice to give. No matter what I was doing, I called her everyday for 25 years, some days just to say hello, and on some days we’d talk for hours, dissecting my day and my worries. Mormor, thank you for helping shape the woman I’ve become and for always having time for me. Thank you for being the most amazing grandmother anyone could ever dream of and thank you for raising the most incredible mother anyone could ever wish for. I will always carry you with me in my heart. All my love xxx

I don't want you to end the week on a sad note - so here's a bit of a laugh. I think I'm definitely team sarcasm and wine....
