CCPC DAY 29- What In Your Bag?



CCPC Day 29 - WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG?
I got REALLY emotional today & decided that’s not what I was going to talk about. I was hoping to be in Mexico today 😢. This beautiful woman turned 100 today & is my great grandma Evelyn. Oh how I love her!!! Her laugh, her hugs, her optimism & humor! 


Evelyn was born in 1920, can you believe it? When we called her to sing happy birthday today she told me she woke up feeling so chipper. She is so present & so loving & still remembers everything! 


I remember going to see my great great grandma every year on her birthday (Oct. 2nd) down in Fairfield, Ca. One of these trips had me and my great grandma taking off in the car for something or other. We were approaching a yellow light & she wasn’t slowing down. I kept looking at her, then the light, then her & the light again. My heart started to race & she sped right through a red light. “Grandma!!!” I exclaimed half terrified but mostly laughing. She looked around & behind her. “What? Was it red?” 😂 I don’t know why that stands out so much to me but it does & it still makes me laugh 😂 .


 She lived in Hawaii for as long as I can remember & made the most beautiful quilts! She was a champion golfer winning multiple tournaments all over California. My mom said my brothers always loved taking her out to golf because she would give them really good tips.


Most recently a memory that brings me to tears is when my mom told her that she & I would be going to Ireland next year in May (& that’s all my mom mentioned). I had only recently begged my mom to take a slight detour from our guided tour so I could see the cottage from the film the Quiet Man (the reason I fell in love with the country). She was hesitant & wasn’t yet committed. My great grandmother called & left my mom a message just DAYS later. She said she had a very vivid dream of me & my mother in Ireland & we were in the Quiet Man cottage. She said she wasn’t with us but she could see us there together 😭😭😭😭. Needless to say, after that, my mom said we would be 100% visiting that house. Either we will call her from the cottage or she’ll be smiling down on us reunited with her sweet mother. 


 I love you Big Grandma. Happy 100th!!! 🥰🥳❤️
