Walk in the front door and dance out the back


We all have our favorites; favorite songs, favorite movies, favorite nail polish. I even have a favorite T-shirt that I use when I want a really good nights sleep. I know we aren't supposed to have favorite grandparents, but I can't help it. Not to say that I don't love them all, but my Grandma Montrone has always been my favorite. She is my mother's mother through and through and I have so many reasons why I love her dearly.
•She always said the funniest things (hence the title of this post).
• She would say the rosary everyday, always have a blessed candle lite in her living room, and always ask St Anthony to help her find something if it was lost.
•Grandma used damn and shit in most sentences. It was even more funny if she was talking religion while saying these.
•She loved to dance. There was always dancing and music played at Grandma's house.
• Everyone was always invited over for dinner. Since we are Italian, there was always plenty of food.
•She would tell everyone we met that I was her granddaughter from Minnesota. It always made me feel so special.
•She loved my Grandpa unconditionally, absolutely, eternally.

Today is my Grandmother's birthday. And although she is still around, her mind is not keeping up with her spirit. It has been a joy to think of all the reasons I love her so much and I feel so lucky to have had so many wonderful memories with her over the years. Happy Birthday Grandma! Thank you for being my favorite!
