Yesterday I lost my grandma. I will miss her. She and I did a lot of bonding while she visited our home. We live in a really nice home. I have gratitude for the relative ease in my life. I know my grandma was born in the 1920s. I have the ambition to become a children’s author. I have goals set for myself. I believe in God. God gave me a positive outlook. I try to be good to other people. I know not everybody is nice but I focus on how nice most of the people are. It is good to connect with other people in a group setting. I try hard to do more and to not isolate myself. I like group therapy better than one on one therapy. I was supernaturally healed by God one day when I least expected it God gave me a miracle. I didn’t feel safe as a child around certain family members. I had a cousin who stole from my mom a lot when I was a child. She and I spoke on the phone but it hurt me a lot that she would steal from my mom. I try to let go of the past. All I could think of was sharing a poem I wrote today to share at her funeral. I have this cute little black dress I have never worn to grandma’s funeral.
I will miss my maternal grandma.
