Dedication to my Grandma
On November 1st 2000, I lost my best friend in the whole world, My grandma. I called her Meece. That day on the way to the hospital I was trying to gather up what I would say to her as my last words. I was pregnant with my last child and I was totally devastated at the thought that she'd never get better. The family had no choice but to take her off of life support and hold her hands and rub her feet as she passed. This was the hardest day of my life. She was the one who was always there for me no matter what. She taught me to cook and she taught me how to be a good mom. On August 28th 1998 she got a phone call from someone telling her that my car had flipped over three times and my daughter was thrown from the car. She got into her car and drove to where the wreck had happened screaming where are my babies???? Finally when she saw me she said "DOn't worry baby and don't be afraid I'll be right behind the ambulance". She was my rock. Whenever I was weak she would pick me up and dust me off and tell me to get it together and I would. I spent all of my summers with her growing up and when I look back now they were the best times of my life. She was there when my first three children were born. She was there for every important milestone of my life. And I miss her.
As I looked in her eyes on that dreaded day I promised her that I would take good care of my kids and that I loved her and appreciated everything she had ever done for me. Her eyes closed and a tear fell. It took 3 hours after they took her off of life support to pass and those were the shortest three hours ever. I didn't want to let her go becasue there were unfinished words that I needed to tell her. So today, I'm finishing what I should've told her then......
THE WIND BENEATH MY WINGS (Bette Midler)
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way,
you always walked a step behind.
So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name -- for so long,
a beautiful smile to hide the pain.
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and ev'rything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.
It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it,
I would be nothing with out you.
Fly, fly, fly away,
you let me fly so high.
Oh, fly, fly,
so high against the sky, so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you,
the wind beneath my wings.
Meece, I have loved you all of my life and you were always the wind beneath my wings. I will always remember the wonderful times we shared. I miss you today and everyday!
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance....DANCE.

This is a lovely tribute to a wonderful woman. When someone has been this important in our lives, I don't think they ever really leave us. I know I feel the presence of my mother every day and the wonderful memories and terrific lessons she gave me are prescious gifts.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
