when skies are grey

you are my only sunshine.
you make me happy~ when skies are grey...
you never know dear, how much i love you.
please don't take my sunshine away..

that's kinda how it feels.  
feels like someone took
our sunshine away.

tonight, i heard olivia start to cry a few minutes
after we tucked her in.
i thought maybe she was trying to stall 
and was going to tell me an old recess wound needed a band-aid.
and then, she started this pure sob.
i went in and laid next to her.
she could barely make out the words.
i knew what she would say before she even said it.

the sunshine song was playing on her cd player.

 she remembered that we gave amma a card 
with this tune in it last year for her birthday...

i asked her if she wanted me to change the song-nope.  
she wanted to hear the whole thing.  
so, we just laid there.
 we listened to it a few times
and just let the tears come until she fell asleep.

we miss our amma.

What a sweet, sweet girl you have - Sometimes I cry when I remember my grandma, too...

...The other night dear - while i lay sleeping - i dreamt i held you in my arms. and when i woke dear - i was mistaken - so i hung, my head, and cried. (painfully true verse)'s beautiful that you entered into this with Olivia. Missing your amma for you, and with you. Love you.
