One of my grandmother's two favorite songs. Schubert's Ave Maria. My dear Grammy has been dead for four years now, long enough that my almost three year old will never me the flesh and bones version of her. This happens to be the case with most of my family so I keep them alive through stories, and things like when I tickle Lili I usually attribute it to Uncle Jon. The past week I have been missing my Gram fiercely.
Khalila recognizes it and says "That's Grandma Gigi's song. So yesterday I didn't sing along and just listened to Khalila sing it (by the way, I have to get that on tape) and in the middle of the part she knows she stopped to tell me "Grandma Gigi says 'good singing Lili'"
Connected to my Grandmother, I started crying, it was so beautiful.
