Today has significance, but not in a pleasant way.
I'm not sure how I remember this date when I struggle with family birthdays, but today's the day my Grandma passed away, in 2001. I couldn't tell you what day she was born, but I certainly remember this date distinctly.
The phone call at one o' clock in the morning, so unusual. Who calls at that hour, and what could they possibly want? Questions of a nine year old. Always so curious, so intruding. I snuck around trying to catch a glimpse of my mother on the phone, and once she hung up, she looked the worst I've ever seen her. I remember asking her what was wrong, but she said something along the lines of, "Not now..", but I think I finally got it out of her, she told me someone very close had died. For some reason I thought of this old aunt I had, Marge or something, because the thought of my Grandma, who I loved deeply, not being around anymore, that was just impossible. Nine year olds aren't programmed to think the worst, and I miss that about childhood. So once she told me who it was, I cried myself to sleep and sulked for the rest of the week. We had to fly out to Iowa, where she lived along with my Grandpa, who is still alive and kicking, for the funeral. I just remember it being such a sad experience, so many old people apologizing to us, and looking lost themselves because my Grandma was the kind of person that everyone loved. I really wish the whole situation never happened, the sunstroke, the wake(first dead body I've ever seen :/ ), the funeral, seeing my mother and Grandpa cry, crying myself. It was just horrible. But it is one of those inevidable things that you just can't squeeze your way out of, death happens. So it's always in your best interest to love the life you're living, make a positive impact, and hold no regrets. And when people you love have to go, reminisce in the memories, understand what they tried to teach you, and hold them in your heart forever.
So that was my little dedication of the night, because thoughts of her have been coming at me lately, and I felt like writing them out. I'll shed some positive light on this post now; It's really felt like forever since I've seen Shayla or Jenna, who are both really good friends of mine :), and tomorrow I'm going mini-golfing with the two of them, plus Amanda. I really hate the way we've drifted, so it'll be really good to catch up and have some fun :D. Plus eating icecream is never a bad thing, mmm. Saturday will be Tom and mine's 7months :). I don't know why, but I'm all excited for it, I just feel like it'll be a really good day. Hopefully my feelings don't disprove me.
Question: Is the Dark Knight really all it's cracked up to be? I'm thinking about seeing it, but I wanna hear some opinions :P,.
