The Things You Need to Know About Nana
In The Things You Need to Know About Nana, my guest blogger uses her words to convey the love she has for her grandmother. They had a tight bond that this young girl misses, terribly.
The past six years of my life have been awful, and you not being here has made that even. You were my person, and you left me. I had to to deal with everything alone, and to be honest, I am sick of it. You were the glue that held the family together. Once you died everything changed. I wish I could put into words how much I miss you. Honestly, I know it is selfish, but I would give anything for you to be here with me. I feel like with life would be a better if you were here. Sadly, I miss my best friend, the one person I knew I could count on. I miss the person who was brutally honest to me.
Wish we could lay in bed and watch one more scary movie together. Or, I wish I could sleep in the bed with you one more time. I wish I could hear more stories from your childhood, I always enjoyed those. Furthermore, I want to. hear you try to pronounce “Aluminum” one last time. That was absolutely hilarious. I really took my time with you for granted.
I’m sorry I couldn’t heal you. I couldn’t make you feel better, I did everything I could. It’s important you know I did my best. I was young and I did the best I could. When you first got sick I prayed to God that you at least lived until I was Eleven. Two and a half months after my Eleventh birthday you died. That has haunted me since the day you died. I’m sorry. Losing you is one of the hardest things I have ever go through, and it’s a wound time will never heal.
Today, I am thankful for my granny. There has never been another person like her. She loved so completely. I miss her face, her hugs, and her love. Granny knew everything. I could come to her with anything and she would tell me what to do. When I was in the wrong, she was quick to correct me. Yes, I would cry and it would hurt my feelings, but in the end, she was right. Geez… I miss her.
