I am thankful for one of the most amazing people I have ever known – my grandmother. From her, I get my snark, my (dry, and sometimes seemingly non-existant) sense of humour, my passion for animals, my love of baking, and even my occasional outbursts of cynicism.
I learned the basics of swimming in her pool, she helped foster my love of reading and my creativity, she taught me how to make koulourakia (my favourite cookie!), and, for the last 27 years, she has inspired me to be a stronger, better person.
She lost her battle with cancer on Sunday, and I am going to miss her so, so much.
