She Is Gone

She came on Wednesday,

But sadly left the day after Sunday.

She brought smiles and giggles,

Along with kisses and hugs.

Elizabeth gave her snuggles,

And she got Elizabeth’s loves.

I’ll miss her dearly,

Still…awaiting her return.

Grandma, my mom, came to visit these past 6 days. It was a wonderful visit, filled with so much love!!

When we dropped Grandma off at the airport today, I don’t think it registered in Elizabeth’s mind that she was saying goodbye to Grandma. Because when we got home she ran excitedly into the living room to the blocks! The blocks have been Grandma and Elizabeth’s domain these past six days.

I was making lunch in the kitchen, and she must have realized; because she sprinted into the kitchen saying, “oh no…”. Proceeding to open the baby gate to go downstairs and find Grandma.

Only to have me stop her and tell her Grandma was gone. The look of disappointment and sadness broke my heart. She then fell down to the floor and sobbed. I had to gather her up into a mama hug, until she stopped.

She is better now but I’m sure she, like me, is waiting for the day Grandma comes back. July!!!

P.S. Mother. You should feel extra loved. Because this is the first time Elizabeth has reacted this way when someone has left. She loves and misses her grandma so much!!

Love you, Mother! ❤️
