3 Years Ago Today

3 years ago today, I lost my biggest fan, my grandma.
I flew to Korea next day and stayed in Korea for 2 weeks.
I miss her a lot but am happy that she is in heaven where there is no pain.
One thing that kills me is that I didn't even get to say good bye to her.
I was mad at myself about that until I watched "Courageous"

There is a scene where Adam Mitchell said 
"Dear God, thank you for the nine years you gave me with Emily. 
I don’t know if it’s okay to ask this, 
but will You please tell her I did my part of the dance?” 

That hit me.
I had never thanked God for the 28 years He gave me with my grandma.
Since that moment, I tried to thank God whenever I miss my grandma.

My grandma would yell at me if she sees that I posted this picture of her on my blog
but I hope she's dancing and partying in heaven right now.

I was probably 3 or 4 and my grandma looks super young!

Since my both parents worked when I was growing up, my grandma raised me and my sister.

This was taken in 2006.
We loved to counting the coins when we killed our piggy banks.

This is taken at her funeral in 2009.

We put my grandma's ashes around this tree and call this tree "Grandma tree".
