Day 20 -- I'm thankful for my Nana. She was very special to me and I have tons of wonderful memories of spending time with her. Memories that might seem silly to others...her housecoat, the pickle she would put on my plate next to my sandwich at lunchtime, the over-flowing cabinet of margarine tubs she saved, how she washed the plates with soap before putting them in the dishwasher, the stashes of coins and money she hid away for the occasional trip to the casino, Shirley Temples with extra cherries that she made me, her special daubers and lucky trinkets she had when she played bingo...but all the things that made her my Nana. She also loved to knit, sew, and create all kinds of unique crafts...she is definitely one of the reasons I also love these things!
She's been gone almost 17 years, and I still miss her! I love you Nana!
