I miss my Nana

  1. I am really missing my Nana tonight. This is the kind of night where I would call her up and she could help me feel better about myself.

    I share things about my life on this bb because I feel comfortable here, and I feel better after I have shared particularly troublesome things. Perhaps that's a bad practice, and I shouldn't do that. I don't know.

    I'm in kind of a funky maudlin mood and I wish my Nana were here.



    Thanks for listening.

    Hi Delirium........
    There are times in life when we really miss someone we love.
    Hugs to you, coming all the way from the southern pacific ocean.

    (Someone posted the idea that MsPurp stood for purple . . . true?? I always thought of "Perpetrator" when I saw it for some unknown, wacky reason . . . dunno why!! Of course, now I will recognize you w/your new name.)

    Glad you felt you could come here to share such a mood w/allnurses family. Sorry you miss your Nana. I know you will find her, tho', in your heart and memories. You know what she would do/say if you came to her now. Peace and love to you. -- D

    Can you curl up with a dog with a nice cup of coco? (Ok .. I have my ac down way too far here! ) It always helps me when I'm in a funk.

    (((Rebecca))) the allnurses family unfortunately can't substitute the real thing, can it Grandmas have such a special wisdom...My grandma's in her last weeks & I miss her already like she's gone

    We'll love you here as much as you need :kiss I think we need a little more around here right now anyway! Hang in there...and share away if you need.

    I miss my Nana too , alot. I have my memories of her, but there is a empty spot. I remember her especially whenever I smell Palmolive soap. I know that probably sounds weird.
    She was a great cook ( what Nana wasn't/isn't?) and I have many of her recipes and I can feel close to her somehow through the smells of her foods.
    I just realized that many of my memories have a scent attached!
    I'm sorry-and I know how you feel.

    Thanks everyone.

    I feel slightly better this morning. I guess its because my Grampa is visiting, and as much as I love him, seeing him alone makes me miss Nana even more...

    My Nans are both still here--Thank God, but my Paw is gone. Seven years this past Febuary. I still cry over him and miss him dearly.
    ((((((((Rebecca)))))))))) I understand.

    To all the Paw's and Nana's and Grampa's and Granma's we love you and cherish every memory of you. :kiss

    I know how you feel, delirium. My Poppy (grandpa) passed away in '76 and every time I think of him I still cry. (I'm 48) He had this funny laugh he did in public just to embarrass me! I miss him so much and wish that my kids had known him.....
