I haven't blogged in a few days because I new I wanted to talk about an incredible woman and influence in my life. Meine Oma. My grandmother. She wasn't ill and we had just all gone to Iowa to celebrate 90 years with her. Incredible really. The life she led and the love she gave it is an amazing thought that she hung around this long as strong and vibrant as she did.
I will be forever greatful that I was a part of her life and she of mine for so long and that we kept communicating even after I left home in 1984. The lessons and the thoughts and wisdom that she surrounded me with are priceless.
Thursday night she went to bed and just decided I am tired and now is the time. She simply didn't wake up. Not a bad way to move to heaven. I smile as I know where she is and she is reading this and I also have tears because I don't feel like I have learned and laughed all I could with her.
Please everyone raise a toast, lift your eyes, blow a kiss and celebrate the life of Johanna Weiss with me for a brief moment. She will be missed and loved for always.
