Today I was driving from the bank to go pick up my lunch, down Beech Daly, and I picked up my phone to call my gram. It was kind of odd, because she's no longer here, and I know that.
My gram seemed to always take Beech Daly everywhere. I don't know why, but she did. And today, I had a big meeting, and I made sure I had my red lipstick because it's very important to present yourself well. Lipstick is essential. That's a Gram-ism.
And today... I got a new bottle of perfume. I love perfume (and it's because I played with it at my Gram's). LOVE IT! I agonized over what kind to get, should I get my standard Issey Miaki or should i get a new one... Romance by Ralph Lauren. I love that perfume, and decided that I needed a little Romance in my life :) My gram would always call me and tell me about my horoscope and how I was going to get some 'love' in my life. Gram again.
Macy's is having some sale, spend $50 or more in cosmetics or perfume, get $10 gift card. So I got a sweater for $6.50 and another sweater for $15.00. It was wonderful! Are you wondering who taught me how to be such a bargain shopper? Oh, that would be my gram again.
I think it's great that God gave us memories so that those who have been in our lives, and we will meet in heaven someday, never really leave us.
Psalm 45:17 I will perpetuate your memory through all generations; therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.
