Leap Year! For me, the 29th of February is always special because it’s a day to stop and remember my two Grandmothers. Maternal grandmother, Maude, (a poet…you can read about her here) was born on February 28th. Paternal grandmother, Mary, (a farm girl who had a very humorous way with words) was born on March 1st. So this day is sandwiched between the birthdays of those two wonderful women whom I remember so fondly and miss even after all these years. I was so lucky to have both of them in my life until I was an adult. They influenced me in many ways, and their unconditional love is more than just a memory, it is something I carry in my heart and treasure every day of my life.
I’ll talk about my February reading in a post tomorrow. Today, I just want to focus on remembering those two lovely women.
