My mother in law Robyn died in 2006 from appendiceal cancer I miss her all the time. I still have a difficult time talking to people about her without getting emotional.
I was going to write a post about her on her birthday that just passed, and I couldn't. Even thinking about what I wanted to say made me tear up.
But, I do want to explain Grandma's Playground.
We take the kids to the cemetery at least twice a year. They like to go. They ask to go. The plot is a big open area -- the family cross is even the picture on the Holy Cross website.
So the kids run around. And dance. And play.
And we laugh
about how much Robyn would have gotten a kick out of the kids running and dancing on her grave.
And we wish that she was still here, with us.
