My Great Grandma

Today, my Great Grandma died. She was with her daughter and her sister and they were laughing and baking a banana cake. She kept claiming her husband was coming from up north to get her today.
She was laughing.
With her daughter and sister.
I guess that's the way to go.
My mom claimed I had a photo of her with all the boys and I dug through some photo albums and found it.
You can see the table laden with all the gifts she had brought us....you can also see how much the boys have grown.

Tonight we will no doubt be looking through the photo albums that I have done....I haven't put together one in forever. I think it's time to start again. There's a lot of memories to be captured and treasured.

I know my Great Grandma was dying and so the news wasn't totally a surprise, but we didn't expect it this soon. And to be honest, I'm taking it hard.

I'm so very thankful I had that day with her recently. You can read about it HERE.

Please, keep our family in prayer this week. Thank you.

Sweetie, your previous post about your grandmother was so moving. Life is just a blink of the eye and the kids are grown and gone. Trust me, it's true. I have no doubt that the Lord gave you that day to allow you a precious memory and to allow you a glimpse into the future to remind you to stop and smell the coffee before you drink it.

Love you and will be praying for you.

My dear...
I AM sad for you, truly.

But I hope to go that way; in the midst of joy and fellowship with those dearest to me! Can you imagine? Laughing with your sister and daughter, then laughing in the arms of God? How beautiful.

You ARE in my prayers...and your whole family.
Much love...much love, my friend.

no real comment, other than sending mad HUGS and prayers your way. This is a beautiful post, and I am so, so sorry for you loss.
