day 69 – four things that belonged to my grandmother

My grandmother passed away this fall and I recently acquired a lot of her old things. She was an incredibly brave and kind woman who raised four children by herself after my grandpa died in the 60’s. She had next to nothing to raise her family on and went against advice she was given to go on welfare and instead got a job at the University of Manitoba, where she worked and then attended university in her sixties. She was an avid traveller until the end, her favourite destination being Mexico with my mom and my aunts. Here are four things that belonged to her:
