thankful: grammy cowell

Nov 13: Grammy Cowell

I'm thankful for my Dad's mom, Grammy Cowell.

I've been thinking about her a lot recently and often look at the picture of she and I {from many years ago} I have hanging on my bulletin board.

I'm grateful for the time I was able to share with her and the weeks my sister and I spent at her house each summer.

She was kind, gentle, and liked her morning coffee!

I'm thankful that she let me be her roommate the year after my senior year of college. I was planning to go back in the fall for a 5th year, but there's a certain transition that every person who goes to college makes after their 4th year. It was a big transition summer for me and I'm thankful I had her to share it with.

She passed away very late the night of my wedding. I miss her a lot, but am so grateful for the relationship we had :0)

Love you Gram!

Aunt Fern (my term of endearment for her) was a wonderful woman. I can still remember far back to being a youngster in her kitchen.
