Miss You, Grandma

My Grandma of 92 yrs, passed away this last week and it got me to thinking that life is just too crazy short. She was quite the remarkable lady and I hope to be like her - she was extremely generous, quit-witted, and her ability to love was wonderful. As I went to her funeral, I was surrounded by family and friends that I hadn't seen for years and years. It was great to catch up with everyone and I just couldn't shake the feeling that Grandma was so happy to see us all together and having a good time.
I love you more, Grandma.

Personal Repellant

You ever feel like you're ticking someone off or at the very least pushing them away but don't know what you did? Or maybe you have a friend that you just feel is out of your figurative 'grasp' when once upon a time, you were really good friends?

I've had the feeling for a while now and I just can't quite put my finger on the 'why' of the matter. Maybe I'm just built to repel after you get to know me... Is this in my head, or does it have some substance to it? Don't be nice. This is not meant to be a pity post, I really want to know what I can do to make it better. Anyone interested in giving constructive advice and maybe even a criticism or two?
