oh, nothing grand.

"oh, um... hi."
"what's your name?"
"sorry, can you speak up a little? my hearing isn't as good as it used to be, you know." wink
"uh, my name is grace."
"oh, well, it's nice to meet you grace!"
"yeah, um, it's nice to meet you too."
"i can't promise i'll remember your name, though, just to give you a fare warning." wink, wink
oh, that's fine, really. no body really remembers me, because i'm not exactly what you would call memorable. 
i'm just shy and quiet and nothing grand. there are very few people in this world who've remembered my name, 
and they're my friends, the only people who actually really, truly matter to me, and apparently i must matter to them, if only a little, 
if they still remember my name. so really, it's okay.
"haha, i'm not good with names, either."
"well, i have to go now. see you later!"
"yeah, see you later."


  1. aw. This is perfect. Such a beautiful story, Gracie. <33

  2. Some people have a quality of being remembered. My brother does. I don't. But we're equally interesting. Which makes me wonder . . . what sort of people are the others that nobody remembers?

  3. This so cute! I love how you write, Gracie! :) <3

  4. Aw. This makes me sad.. it's so sweet though. You are lovely. x

  5. can we have a toast to gracie? everybody raise your milkshakes.
    gracie, you're a wallflower.
    you see things, and you understand.
    to you. <3

  6. love this, Grace. :) i feel the exact same way, but you described it perfectly. :) love this. x
    p.s. yes, Jocee, to you, Grace! *raises milk-shake. or cup of tea.* <3

  7. yes, Jocee! :) to Gracie! :) i love this, and feel the same way. sometimes i just really wish i could see what other people think of me, if they even remember me, or if they think about me aside from when I'm standing right in front of them.

  8. this is too good, girlie. loved it. :)

  9. Aw don't be sad :( You are awesome!

  10. i will always remember you name, gracie. how could anyone forget you? that's just it. they don't, they being the ones who really matter to you in life. don't despair, the Lord remembers you too :)

  11. this is honestly perfect. i might steal (& give credit.)

  12. aaahh this is so lovely. like. yeah. love it so much.

  13. I need to say this to someone. In fact, I'm going to make it my goal of the week to say this.

    aahhh this is so beautiful.

  14. First of all, that picture is beautiful. Second, THIS THIS THIS. This is me. I don't think there is anything wrong with being quiet, though some people do, but I think that if we all only remember the loud ones, this world would be nothing.
    Really, why is Texas so faaarrrr.

  15. I love the picture. It is perfect.
    This post is so simple, yet so adorable.
