Day 7 of Blogtober 2020 and the prompt is If I Could Turn Back Time. As will all the prompts it is down to each of us to interpret it as we feel.
I found this very easy, as it is something I have wished for many times in the past.
22 years ago we said goodbye to my lovely Grandma, she was an amazing woman who I loved dearly. My heart broke the day she died. Even now I think about her all the time and sometimes talk to her. Two years later my Grandad died, I believed that they were back together again. If I could turn back time I would bring her back for many reasons.
1. Her Greatest Wish
One thing my Grandma wished for was a great-grandchild. I was married but we never had children of our own. She never really liked my husband either. She never told me either of the above it was my Mum who told me once she died.
I would love her to meet C, she would have loved her so much. Although I would have had to stop her spoiling her so much. I regret so much the two of them never met, although I do see C in her, especially with a look C can give. This truly is my biggest regret in life that this never happened for either of them.
2. Seeing Me Happy
My Grandma was a very clever woman, she could read me like a book and knew how unhappy I was even behind the smile. She would have loved my husband (this is my second marriage), and to see me happy. She would have also loved both the boys and would have spoilt them as much as she would have C. I am lucky my Grandad met my husband and the boys.
If I could Turn Back Time
I wish I could just hear her voice, see her smile and give her a cuddle one more time. It is strange but when C was a baby, I swear I could smell her perfume. It never scared me, I felt comforted and weirdly happy, as I felt she had met her great-granddaughter and was looking over her while she slept.
What would you wish for if you could turn back time?
