Did she ... really...?

Jamie asks us "What do you wish to share"? I want to share a tribute to a lovely lady: Valeria.

Dh´s grandma passed on Monday evening.

She was 93 years old, a wise, fun and absolutely in touch with the real world woman. She will be missed by family and friends (and she had a ton of both ).

It was a gorgeous day yesterday for her funeral and there were so many relatives and friends that it was a wonderful tribute to her.

Going to her home was like an all year round Christmas for the kids. Just go for a quick how-are-you-doing-these-days visit and leave with (this is a true story): six chocolates, a can of peaches, a plushie and a pair of socks. Just because.

After reading Suzie´s story on her answering machine message and how Robyn was guided to the heart shaped rocks, I thought if it would be possible for her to send me a message. Of course my first thought was the traditional white feather, but where would she find a white feather in my neighbourhood?. And why for me? If a white feather was too much, something smaller would be nice, thank you very much. After a few hours of scoring everywhere for it, I got caught up with the vertigo of the day.

And then I found it, a white button at my door. A practical, isn´t this useful? object. Right there.

First off hugs for your loss. She sounds like an amazing woman!! My grandmother used to do that to - the treats!! I hope I remember to do that too!!
I think I would be more likely to find a button myself - practical me!! Wonderful post hon, Sarah
