Dear Grandma Gladys
Grandma Gladys flew away to heaven two nights ago. She has been huge part of my life for almost 35 years. One of the first dates my Beloved and I had was to visit Grandma and her family. She has been a delightful part of my life ever since. Grandma's hands have been busy in our lives...and what a blessing she has been.
She was my mentor. She taught me how to play like a child, how to be a good Mom--her creativity was always an inspiration. I loved her stories and we often laughed together.
How grateful I am for the time I recently spent with her while her daughter was away. We ate at McDonalds (her favorite place), giggled together and I tended to her, throughout the day, and as she slept in her big easy chair.
She is in a better place now--out of pain, able to see and jump and walk--I can't even begin to imagine the freedom and joy she has now. She is with her Beloved Vic and is seeing the face of Jesus.
I know she's having a ball telling my Beloved husband all about what's been going on down here whilst he's been gone there.
Have a lovely day, dear Friends--and take time to cherish the ones you love. Life is fragile and every day is a gift.
