I've started calling her weekly to just say hello and see how she is doing. It's nice to take time out of the day and see how a loved one is.
She's so open about her life, maybe this is where I get my Chatty Kathy stuff from. Yesterday we discussed her new dog, a poodle. I let her know we'd all look forward to meeting the poodle at the end of summer when we come up with the new baby.
I may not get to see her too often but I've made it a point to come up at least twice a year since I've met her. Before my dad found her all of my maternal and paternal grandparents had passed away. Luckily I had E's grandparents but it's nice to have my dads birth mother around. She's even younger than E's father which made her laugh when I told her so.
So that's my entry for today...enjoy the ones in your life whether you've had them forever or just for a short period of time. It's so worth it!
