These pictures were taken about five years ago on my 33rd birthday. My grandma and I always celebrated our birthdays together. This year was different because my grandma had passed away in January that year, so this was my first birthday without my grandma.
I was missing my grandma incredibly and wondered if she would be there to celebrate with me. When I got to the party my mom had made me two cakes…she told me they were both for me, but I knew one was for my grandma. When I blew out the candles on my cake my brother took pictures.
After the party David and I were looking through pictures and David says,”Look Melanie! Your grandma is in this picture!” I slapped and said “Yeah, right!” David showed me an image in the smoke. I played around with the camera zooming in and out on the image. I took the picture home and printed it out and looked at it under a bright light. It was my grandma. She was there. I didn’t celebrate our birthdays alone.
My birthday is October 27 and my Grandma’s is the 26…so I was dressed like a pumpkin because we were having a costume/birthday party.
