I’ve learned long ago that wishing and waiting doesn’t work. Especially when someone is gone—forever. I have learned of forgetting about it and moving on—from the men in my family. But I find that forgetting only causes more hurt when you do remember, for nothing like a person could ever truly be forgotten. I remember my grandmother by teaching myself the things she would have taught me. I’ve tried my hand at cobbler (that didn’t work out!) and sewing. Sewing is something special. The fact that you can take a needle, string, and a piece of dyed fabric and make in into something—wow, it’s just amazing. Nowadays I use a sewing machine, not a needle, but it is sewing all the same.
Sewing isn’t just sewing to me anymore, it is a remembrance. A remembrance of someone who would have taught me things had she been given the chance. The chance to live after cancer.
