I Remember When
This is an picture of my Grandmother Annie Mae Moore. One of my greatest inspirations. I have so many memories of her. On October 19,2004, which happens to be 3 days before my B-Day she was called home to be with God. This was a tragic day for our family. She and I had so many things in common. We were both the oldest of 6 children to start. We used to talk about how our younger siblings got on our nerves. There are so may things I miss about her. How she used to have a scripture for ANY and EVERYTHING that ailed me. I loved how she used to sit in her bedroom and do crossword puzzles eating peanut chews. She brought them by the bagful. Every Thanksgiving we would all get together and watch The Color Purple and she would narrate almost the whole movie. I laugh thinking of all these things.It's important to have those "I remember when" moments in life and in your family. I push rewind and I go back to some of the special moments that she and I shared. I miss talking to her 4-5 times a day. I miss how she used to babysit my dog. The list goes on and on. You never know the time or the day when someone will leave this earth so cherish the moments. Be sure to create those "I remember when" moments with family and friends. Life is short and you never know that time or the date when you or they are scheduled to leave here.
I know my Grandmother is looking down from Heaven wondering why am I making such a fuss over her. Naming my company after her, making sure that as a family we never forget her and constantly keeping her memory and her legacy ALIVE.
Mommay(pronounced Mom-May our nick name for her) you were and are such an inspiration to me that there is no way I will ever let anyone in this family forget you. You are sorely missed and still loved. Sending you Love all the way to heaven.
