A grandparent buys you gifts your mother says you don't need. - Erma Bombeck

I miss her. My grandmother. Actually both of them, but my Mommom, in particular today. You know those days when you can be surrounded by people, but still feel alone in some way. Today is one of those. All I've been thinking about all day is laying my head on her lap, my safe place. She would run her fingers through my hair and make me forget that there were any issues or problems in the world. It was my favorite place to be ....

She once told me, that the perfect man for me would be able to make me feel safe like that and he would always take care of me. I'll never forget that conversation as she ran her fingers through my hair watching a Phillies game. It was the most personal conversation she ever had with me. Today, even though the Phillies aren't playing (don't even get me started with that!), I wish she were here for me to lay on her lap and run her fingers through my hair so we could have another conversation.

Still looking for someone to make me feel the way she did ....
