Three Questions From Miriam: 

1. What is your most memorable moment?

I think different moments are memorable at certain times. I think the one which sticks out most was the second last time I saw my Grandpa E. He grabbed my hand as I hugged him and asked if he still had a little girl to sit on his lap. He was gripping my hand tightly and suddenly, I remembered being a girl of three-years old sitting on my Grandpa’s lap as he drove his tractor to mow the grass: 

He told me, “Someday Grandpa won’t have a little girl,to sit on his lap.” I smiled at him. I remember wanting to make him smile. Grandpa was serious. I told him, “You’ll always have a little girl to sit on your lap.” I remember the brightest smile on his face. 

And as he lay dying I repeated that line from long ago to him. He dropped my hand and smiled. The effort grasping my hand had worn him out. 

2.When was your last time of having tears of joy?

I don’t recall honestly. Maybe when the Oilers made the Stanley Cup Final in 2006. But that was a long time ago. 

3. What do you like the best about blogging?

Sharing my writing. It relaxes me and allows me to have a creative outlet. I like interacting with other bloggers and seeing my writing and others writing improve over time.

  1. Hi Amanda, I love reading your answers. You were your grandpa’s little girl till the end when he stepped over the door to a beautiful world without end. It’s this intimate moment of being loved that creates the sparks over and over again in us. I find the same thing in blogging also. I took a two-year break, because I couldn’t decide what the overall theme would be for my blog. Before long, it was two years. I came back in July this year, testing the water. I find it my blogging keeps my interest up and I can’t hardly wait to post the next one. We’ll keep encouraging each other…:-)

  2. Congratulations Amanda! I really enjoyed reading your answers, especially, “What is your most memorable moment?” Such a treasured memory to carry with you, I think you will always be Grandpa E’s little girl, very touching. Wishing you well, please have a wonderful and creative evening. Take care. ~ Mia
