We said Goodbye to my Grandma Mimi today. She was quite a woman, very much a part of who I am and what I do and say and even look like. Just today I looked in the mirror and felt like I saw her nose for the first time on my face. Well I loved her so much and knew her so well, I can hardly be sad she that she is gone, just glad that I could have loved her and known her so deeply. She has always been a wild and crazy gal and an extra good grandma, but as I've grown up I've realized how much I thought of her and respected her in a different way. She was inspiring, smart, energized, nothing was too big, too hard, too much for her. She was a trailblazer and a mountain climber and a hero of mine.
From our visit with Mimi last week. I've declared this 'game weekend' in her honor. She loved a good game. We'll be drinking and playing a different game every night. All are welcome!
