Gratitude with TBB

A year since she left

Today is the day that marks one year since Grandma Diehl passed away.  I feel like I could go on about how much she meant to me, how much I miss her and how much I've come to realize the importance she had in the lives of so many people.
But I really think I'd be repeating myself.
I know I was blessed to have had a fantastic Grandmother who was an incredible role model for so many. I know that.  So to honour her this day, I'll go back and re-read the posts I wrote a year ago.


Upon dealing with death.







It's on a day like to today that I'm very glad that I still am going at this blog.  For me, it is a way to capture all the special moments and be able to pass them on to my children.  Some day, when Willis and Lucia read this, they will know how important my Grandma was in my life.

And on that note, I'd like to introduce you to one of my new endeavours.  For Christmas, I received one of the greatest gifts ever: a copy of our family's newsletter- the Branch Informer, which ran from 1985-1993.  It was a way for our family (my mom and her 6 siblings) to stay in touch during a time when there wasn't internet or cheap long distance phone plans.  I was inspired reading these stories and truly feeling to be a part of something much bigger, so much so that Kyla and I decided to ressurect the newsletter in a more tech-savy way.  So, I'd like to introduce you to the new Branch Informer which makes it's inaugural post today and will continue on for as long as the family keeps participating.  I plan on covering different topics each month and posting once a week, but for the rest of April, we'll focus mainly on our most cherished memories of Irene.

Have a lovely Wednesday.
