Today marks five years..
Five years already.. Five years ago one of the most influential women in my life transitioned to the most heavenly realm. My beautiful, loving, kind hearted, tough as nails, witty, funny, loving, did I say loving? Grandma Shirley Ann Aragona let go of her earthy bounds, and, in my opinion joined the likes of other saintly beings that nurture the physical world from beyond. My gramma was a saint. IS a saint! She has persevered through so much. A strong independent woman who raised a wonderfully strong family unit. Gramma I miss you. I called for you last night. I felt you enter around 1am. Tears flowing free. I asked what she thought about all this. The past year, the family, The world, the stress, the ups and downs, Maria.. Why? She leaned me across her lap, laid her hands on my head and just let me cry. I felt the comfort she always provided me. I felt the security you long for when someone you trust says “everything’s gonna be alright”.. and you they are speaking the truth.
As I start to feel the warmth from her hands, I hear her voice As sharp and as witty as ever “Now quit your sniveling and get to work” 😎😂 Touché gramma, touché.
My head rises from my desk, wiping the tears off my face. I take a deep breath, look towards the heavens and smile knowing what I just experienced was absolutely real.
The energy never leaves, it transforms into something greater.
Thank you Gramma for everything.
The last thing I said to you as I walked out the door was “wish me luck gramma”
You responded “I always do”
My angel forever. Time to clock back in Gramma
I actually look forward to see what develops in the coming days/weeks/months/years. It’s a blessing to be here. I’ll make the best of it. Peace and love to you and yours, always.
