this week my grandmother, josefina, is visiting.
i love my grandmother.
she is a worrying, set-in-her-portuguese-ways, passionate, quick to speak, very slow to listen, opinionated, and persistent 84 year old woman (sound like someone else you know).
she also loves deeply and unconditionally, is generous with her life (she gave hers up to raise me), hard-working, and tells the tallest tales ever!
she has the softest hands, the sweetest smile, and the jolliest laugh.
i absolutely adore her!
