N is for nana
Nana is a teacher that I taught beside for a couple of years. She was close to retirement. She had never married or had children. I was half way through grad school when I found out I was pregnant. Shortly after having my son, I became a single parent. Nana and I had become good friends before Michael was born, however, she turned into EXACTLY what we needed in our lives. One of the downfalls of moving 4 1/2 hurs away from everyone you know, is that your support group dwindles. In stepped Nana! She kept Michael for me so much while I was finishing grad school. She loved him. And he loved her. The older he became, the more thankful I was to have her in our lives. She filled the role of 'grandmother' that we needed in our lives.
