Dear Grandma, I can’t believe you’re turning 93 today. I can’t believe it because it’s one number closer to the brutal fact that I will soon be without you. But I’m not surprised you’re turning 93. You’re the strongest, most stubborn person I know. Nothing else would make sense than you turning 93. The difference between having no one and having someone is huge. You can only know how huge if you’ve gone through life where you’ve had no one. Thank you, Grandma, for the last few years when you’ve had me feel less alone. I’m proud of the work both of us have put into growing, and how close we are now. Hope you like I never dreamed I’d grow up to be a Crazy Grandma but here I am killing it shirt.

It’s heavy when birthdays become bittersweet. For me, they always have been since I was a child. It’s a day when it becomes so obvious who is not there to celebrate them. It’s especially true with parents, who are the reason we have birthdays at all. Now, your birthday is bittersweet too. I wish you would stop aging. I’m working hard to create a life around me and within me to face the days when you’re not here. I’m pretty sure you will stick around as long as you can worry about the madness of my life as an entrepreneur. I know all you want in your last chapter of life is for my life to be stable. I wish that it was too.
But we rarely see women who take huge risks. Women who live on the edge so they can bring our society to new heights. Some lives are meant to be lived differently. Some lives are not meant to be comfortable. But our love is. And I hope our love can show the world that it can exist and grow for everyone in different forms. Everyone around you is astonished by how well you’re doing. You might not be able to move around as much without a hand to hold like in this photo.
Happy birthday my Crazy Grandma
Somehow, though, you can remember what you had for dinner and dessert with my grandfather on a trip to England in 1960. I don’t even remember what I had for dinner yesterday. How you can be 93 and still have the same sharp mind and memory is beyond me. This weekend we celebrate you, and I’m filled with gratitude over the strongest, wisest grandmother I could have. I love you more than the air I breathe. And even more than the air I breathe is my purpose: to show that there are women entrepreneurs who are crazy enough to sacrifice it all.
This vision is even more important than both of us. However, to spend less time with you because of work and to not give you the peace of mind you deserve, will always be my biggest sacrifice. You tell me every week that you’re running on pure willpower. I am too. And I’ll be making an announcement publicly very soon about it. Let’s keep pushing, Grandma. Happy birthday! – Your strong and stubborn other half. Have a nice day with I never dreamed I’d grow up to be a Crazy Grandma but here I am killing it shirt. Thank you!
