three years of missing you.

[grandma & grandpa allen with the bunch, circa december 1991.(that’s me with the finger on my teeth…like that hair, do ya?!)

“She will die over and over again for the rest of my life. Grief is forever. It doesn’t go away; it becomes part of you, step for step, breath for breath. I will never stop grieving because I will never stop loving. That’s just how it is. Grief and love are conjoined, you don’t get one without the other. All I can do is love her, and love the world, emulate her by living with daring and spirit and joy.”

three years ago we lost our beloved grandma allen.
our lives have never been the same since that somber day.
but she lives on.

oh how her love lives on.

i love you grandma,
your annie

    This is very beautiful. You never stop missing your Grandmother. I've given this to my Mum as it's Nana's anniversary at this time too. Thank you xo


  2. Hiii. Thank you for posting this, my friend follows your blog, and she thought of sending this post to me to somehow encourage me. the quote from Jandy Nelson speaks very true for me. I lost my mum in 2009, and yeah, the grief never really goes away. I miss her everyday… Thank you again, I was very encouraged 🙂
