My grandma used to write songs for everyone on their birthday. My name, being Melissa Jane, matched up well with the song “Eliza Jane.”

Here’s my song:

We’ve got a girl, we love her so..
Melissa…Melissa…
We’ve got a girl, we love her so..
Little Melissa Jane..

Oh Melissa…Little Melissa Jane..
Oh Melissa…Little Melissa Jane..
With rosebud cheeks and eyes so blue…
Turned up nose and dimples too..
Oh Melissa…Little Melissa Jane..

I think this is one of the perfect examples of how loving my grandma was. She wrote songs for everyone. Personally, I think mine’s the best…But that’s just me.

I miss my grandma. Spokane isn’t the same without her.

Whenever this topic comes up, I quickly say “Go Mariners!” or “Go Seahawks” and quickly disengage from the conversation. I often wonder if this has kept me friends or lost me friends. Do people think I’m making fun of them?

Proud to say that the Gonzaga Bulldogs are rated this year! (Washington doesn’t have a basketball team to even pretend to be proud of…)
