This post has nothing to do with Weight Watchers or weight loss but I still wanted to blog about it.
My mom died in November 2009 from breast cancer. It’s not really something I open up about in this blog but I am bringing it up now because it has some relevance to the following picture/information.
For the past few years I have been going through my mom’s stuff that she left behind and in the process I have found many wonderful pictures and other things that capture really great memories. One of them was this picture of my Great Grandma (GG) at her college graduation. GG decided to go back to college in her 70’s and graduated! There was a newspaper article about her during that time also. Pretty cool right? So I gave this picture to my mom’s cousin who was VERY VERY close to GG. GG was his Grandma and they had a really close bond. Here’s the picture
My mom’s cousin emailed me tonight with this message:
“Thanks for giving me your mom’s copies of the articles about grannie’s graduation. they’re already paying dividends: i put them on my dining table when i got home on sunday and today my maid came to my house — and she apparently read them. the note that she left for me is attached and speaks for itself. she also just texted me and told me that she cried while reading the articles. i’m going to send her my favorite pic of grannie, which i took at her graduation (attached), along with the articles.”
Here is the letter his maid left him after reading the articles and seeing this picture:
HOW AMAZING IS THIS?!
I’m not going to lie, I teared up a little when I read the letter from his maid. I think this is what life is made of. Human connection, memories, inspiration, life, bettering yourself…..the list goes on and on. This just made me feel really good inside and I wanted to share it with all of you.
