"You raise me up, to more than I can be."

I can't believe it's been a year since you've been gone. And it breaks my heart to think that you've been gone for so long now, and time has slowly healed the pain. But that will never make me stop missing you.

I miss your witty sense of humor. You were very ornery and had a great sense of humor. And every visit to the nursing home to see you, or going to my Aunt's house you always made my sisters and I laugh.

You loved your family, and we all loved you, and will always love you. I remember coming to visit one time and you were bragging to your nurses about your beautiful granddaughters. You were truly and always will be, one of a kind.

It's been a year since I've last hugged you and heard your voice. And it absolutely breaks my heart that I never got to say goodbye.

I still have your Christmas cards and many birthday cards you've given me since the day I was born. And I'm so beyond grateful that I kept them after all these years.

You've taught me a lot, and I can never thank you enough. Because of you, I live every day as if it were my last. I laugh more, I put my family first and I love all no matter what.

The first Christmas not visiting you was hard on all of us, but we shared memories and laughed and had a wonderful time. And we sat there and remembered you.

You were and always will be one of the most remarkable people I have ever met. And I've always admired that about you.

Everyone misses you so much. But we all know In our heart that you're up there looking down at us smiling. And you're finally with your husband and with the rest of the people who have gone away as well.

But we are all thankful that you are no longer in pain, and that you are finally at peace.

I will always be thankful for the time I spent with you. The many summers at my aunt's house, the trip to the ER with the bug in my ear (Cringes), my mother's wedding, my birthday, visiting you in the nursing home, Thanksgiving and more.

You will always be in my heart, and I will always, always love you.

I miss you always

You raise me up to more than I can be.


Your Great Granddaughter

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
