Do you ever have those times when you get to take time and remember someone you love who you do not get to see anymore?

My daughter and I had an idea to have oranges...but what are oranges without sugar? So we decided to eat us some oranges and sugar. There's one person in particular who loved sugar with EVERYTHING. In fact the idea of sugar with my oranges was her idea. She and I shared this love of sugar together. We always loved the same crazy stuff. That person is Granmama...who we call Mama! This was my husband's grandmother. She died a couple of years ago.

That is a picture of her and my husband. They truly had a special bond. He still thinks often about her and still loves her greatly.

So I could not possibly eat that delicious snack without honoring Mama's memory and saying that we still love you so much and treasure the memories we have.

That is my baby as you can see I am passing on the love of those before me through our love of sugar. lol!

I thank my God every time I remember you. Philippians 1:3

Thank you God for allowing me to know such an amazing woman who was and is loved by so many and made a lasting impression on each of us.


  1. Grammama put sugar on everything! That's what made her so sweet! :)

  2. So are basically saying that me and Kiki are sweet too, because we do the same!

  3. Mama loved you too Brandi and so do I. :)

  4. sniffle, sniffle...That was so sweet. There are so many little things that remind me of Mama- and that is definitely one of them.

    I guess you and Kiki are sweet from all that sugar! lol
