Rembering our Granny Staples
I could sit here and tell you how sad I am to be with out her but through my faith and knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ I know that I will see her again.
She also taught me to play several tunes on the piano. I was always mesmerized by her beautifully manicured nails and how they clicked on the piano keys. I can still play chopsticks to this day because of her.
For a few years while I was in middle and high school my grandparents lived right down the street from our family. We would go on family walks almost every Sunday and meet Granny and Grandpa at their house. There they would hop on their tandem bicycle together and ride with us around the neighborhood. Us kids always got such a kick out of that.
One year when we lived close to them my granny got very sick and when she finally started getting better and was home from the hospital, she asked that I come over and please paint her toes! She said they looked like troll feet and she couldn't paint them herself yet! I assure you they never looked anything like troll feet and I was honored to give her a pedicure.
I could go on for days with many more special memories of my Granny but I will just leave you with these few. This will be another tough week for my family as my son Tristan under goes an intensive surgery to correct a birth defect he was born with. I know that my Granny will be watching over me and my little family and that brings me great peace. Rachel and I will be taking off another week of blogging. Rachel will be spending some quality time with her mother and I will be focusing on my little man. We will be back sometime next week and will get back on track with our usual crochet, sewing, painting and quilting. Until next time
