They Called Her "Red" (5 Minute Friday-Red)

I miss her. I miss her an awful lot. Actually I didn’t realize how much until this prompt, right here, tonight. Red. And my mind washed over blank as can be. Until it hit me. Red. Red. They called my Grandmother,  Red. They. Other adults, that is. She was Grams to me. And she quite liked it. How much she meant to me? Immeasurable. I miss her to Heaven, right now. Memories of Dunkin Donuts on Friday nights when I would sleep over. And she would buy a dozen. Powdered, Cinnamon, Chocolate. And they were for me, as much as I would want…and we’d watch Lawrence Welk and all of those old folks shows. And coffee with cream and sugar on Saturday morning, with eggs and bacon. If food is love, she loved me full! Homemade olives, and soups. Roasts and marinated mushrooms. Everything made with scrumptious love. Followed by Sunday Football. 
I miss her. I miss her love. I miss her to Heaven, is what I mean.
I want to hang on to every delicious memory. 
I could have written all night…because in the writing I was remembering and she felt real again. Oh, I miss that Gram with the red hair.

OK, 5 minutes and write whatever you want…come on over!

Quote Journal (RJD Link 9/13)

This month for Random Journal Day I thought I would share my Quote Journal.
Who doesn’t love a well turned out verse? We all have our favorite quotes, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to keep them? Well, that is exactly why I keep a quote journal. OK, honestly, I am inconsistent with this one since I usually write whatever quote strikes me in my regular daily journal, but sporadically I make an effort to capture them to this place. So here are a few from the pages of my quote journal. I hope you like them. I think I will make an effort to be more vigilant in filling these pages in the days ahead; Then I will share with you a follow up post with new treasures. I hope you can read my journal writing. I have also included a few from the journal that are not pictured. Feel free to share a quote with me that I might add to my Quote Journal in the comments section. 
Happy Writing, fellow Journalers!
