Today would have been my grandmother’s 89th birthday if she were alive.

…but then again, of course, she IS still alive. If in the end all we are is whatever we create, the human connections we make, and the memories we leave behind then she is very much still here. Thank you Xi Olmec for reminding me of this, this morning.

I carry my grandmother in my spirit everyday and I remember talking to her about teaching, reading together, the trips we took, memories we made, and conversations we had.

today’s affirmation: I am my grandmother’s granddaughter. My grandmother created me.
