Grandma Ruby

Grandma Ruby

I’m thinking about my Grandma Ruby today. She died a year ago and she’s been on my mind a lot lately.

  • She was a good woman.
  • She made the best pickles.
  • She worked very hard in her life.
  • She raised five wonderful children, my mom, my aunts and my uncle.
  • She only swore when she talked about Nancy Reagan.
  • She looked beautiful when she wore pink.
  • She had wonderful hair, her Grandma Ruby hair.
  • She called margarine “oleo”.
  • She always smelled pretty.
  • She made good cookies.
  • She was like the Energizer Bunny.
  • She gave so much love.
  • She was loved so much.
  • She is missed terribly.

    What a lovely tribute. I hope someday my grandchildren talk about me the same way.

    Wendy, just got around to reading your blog. I am of course crying about the beauty of your tribute to Mom. I too have been thinking about her this week. Thank you for wonderful sense of language. I love you and Grandma did too.
