I really miss her. She would have been 79 today. I have to remind myself that even though she died two years ago, even if everything hadn’t gone wrong, she probably wouldn’t be alive to day anyway. That’s so sad to me.

I hate that she missed meeting her first great-grandchild. I hate that she missed seeing the Dems take back the House and the Senate.

I hate the fact that I can’t share things with her.

I took this picture of her when I has in high school. She didn’t want me to take it but I think it captures how she really looked day to day, especially then. She was lonely and hated the dark, cold Vermont winters.

She was sassy and opinionated. She was brave and cowardly. She was funny and willful.

She was.
