An Open Letter To My Angel

Not a day goes by I don't think of you.

An Open Letter To My Angel

To the grandparent who left,

It may have been for the better. It may have been your time but it still feels like it was too soon. After years of you being gone, it feels like I will still walk inside & see you in your chair.

I can't grasp the fact that my world has changed. There are so many things I have left to say & had no way to say them.

I am sorry for all the pain you had to experience. The sleepless nights. The uncomfortable feeling. The pain in your chest. It was the hardest thing I had to watch. I wanted to take your pain away. I would take the pain over you.

I am sorry for taking you for granted. I knew one day you would pass & down the road it would hurt but I never actually thought the time would hit. For some odd reason, I believed you were going to live forever.

Although I can apologize for not being the best granddaughter.

I want to thank you for being the best grandparent.

Thank you.

Thank you for ALWAYS being there for your grandchildren. If it wasn't my soccer game, it was my brother's baseball game or looking of my sister's art. You never let anything stop you from being your grandchildren's number 1 fan.

Thank you for always taking time to visit us. When I was younger I thought it was silly you would play barbies or teacher with me. Looking back, I would take all those times back just to see you again. You invested so much time for us.

Thank you for trusting me enough to take care of you. I know you were getting sick & couldn't take care of yourself. It was not only hard on you but everyone else. I was so young that I felt like I couldn't nearly help you as much as someone else could.

Thank you for caring about how well I did in school. I would always get asked the same question, "what did you learn today?" Well, I never actually knew what I learned. After 11 years of getting the same question asked, it shows you cared. You cared enough for 9 years to listen to my horrible violin playing. You pushed me to keep trying with it.

I still love & miss you more & more every day. I still cherish & hold on to every memory we have had since I was a little girl. I nearly could not have become who I am without you. I cannot explain the appreciation I have for you as a person & grandparent. I will always be grateful or your dedication & love for us.

You will always be a part of me.

Your angel on Earth.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
