I’ve been about again. My grandpa passed last week on my mother’s birthday.
In all of the care my grandma gives to others, in all of the time she’s spent away, in all of her years her garden has shrunk to a bright spot by her doorstep, plants throughout the house, and loved-upon loved ones and not-long-strangers where ever she’s been.
I’ll need to learn to make popcorn balls. My kids had yet to have grandpa’s family-famous treat.
