Today I am going to stray from the normal Five Question Friday because the most wonderful thing happened to me yesterday. Some of you may or may not know this but my grandfather passed in 2004. My grandfather was very near and dear to my heart. I was overwhelmed with grief and denial. I never thought I would get over his passing, but with time we all move on. One thing that was particularly special between my grandfather and I was everywhere we walked I would always pick up nuts, bolts, washers, nails you name it and I would give them to my grandfather. He was a handy man, carpenter by trade and I was always sure he would need that extra part for something. Who knows what my grandfather always did with those random bolts, but that wasn’t the point it was something we shared. Yesterday while walking through a parking lot G stopped in his tracks to run back and pick up a washer, he handed it to me and said “Here you go mama”. I damn near bursted into tears right then and there. I kneeled down gave him a big hug and kiss and said thank you. Now if that wasn’t a sign I don’t know what is. No I have not found my new faith in god or anything but I will be damned if that wasn’t my grandfather channeling, looking over or whatever you wanna call it. Whatever the hell it was I will take it!!! I miss my grandpa.
The washer now has a permenent home on my key chain!
On a lighter note we had dinner last night with Devyn and Tadd at RA in The District. I had the best cucumber margaritas and delicious sushi. It was a great way to spend an evening with good friends.
Hope you all have a great day. I ♥ you Tadd! oxoxo
