My mother's mother, a woman who was a huge influence in my life, was born 100 years ago today.
She went to go and join my grandfather in Heaven years ago, yet she is a presence in my life still.
I quote her so often that once, five years after she passed a work colleague told me she was confused, was Mama dead or alive. That's how much she is still with me.
There was a time when the pain of losing her was so fresh I couldn't see today for what it always was and always will be - a celebration!
To celebrate I will go visit her on this beautiful sunny day.
This is my favorite pic of Mama & Papa dancing at my Uncle Frank's wedding.
