The last few days have been a little bit sad for me - last Friday was the anniversary of my maternal grandmother's birth: she would have been 103 but she passed away in 1989. She is the one who taught me to crochet (even though I'm left-handed), bought me my first sewing machine and taught me to use it. She would be proud of quilting efforts.
And today is would have been my FIL's 83rd birthday. It is the first birthday since he passed away last April so it's a bit weird not calling him today - WM will call his mother instead and make sure she is okay!
In addition, yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of my father's death. It brings tears to my eyes just typing that - I miss him so much!
