For the first time since I was staying with Granny, before she went to the hospital, I watched “Days of Our Lives” today.
Granny would almost always lay down after lunch and watch it on the TV in the bedroom and I would sometimes watch it in the living room.
Some of the biggest blessings in my life were received while I was helping with her care. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to spend this time with Granny. Hind sight is 20/20 and if I could go back, I would spend more time with her when she was able to do stuff, take her shopping and out to eat. Just do things with her that I know she enjoyed doing.
Granny never complained to me how I did things or didn’t do things. She was so easy to please and never complained about her condition to me. Granny was dissatisfied that she could not do for herself and felt that she was a burden to others. She was NEVER a burden to me. If only I can have the grace she had if I am ever dependent on others for my care.
The morning before she went to the hospital that afternoon, she said to me “I’m going home” with such acceptance. I knew at that time she knew Jesus almost had her mansion completed. I hoped she was wrong, but everyday her condition told me that she was indeed right. Granny was not afraid to die!!
Yes, Granny, I loved you then and I love you today.
