mother-in-law   Leave a comment

My mother-in-law would have been 74 today if she was still alive.
She passed away four years ago, two days after my first blood born grandchild was born.
She never got to meet Keira but she did see a picture of her.

She, my mother-in-law, Evelyn, had surgery to remove cancer from her lungs and had a massive heart attack the next day and died

she was a good grandmother to my children and a bit of an eccentric as a woman but that is what makes the world go around, all of us being different in our own little ways.

Evelyn liked attention.
Sometimes she would embarrass me with the way she sought out attention.
Even from strangers.

I have always been the opposite of that.
I never want attention on me.
I prefer  to be the wall flower and watch what is going on.

Still she was a nice woman and I have missed her since her passing.

So happy birthday Evelyn.
