Last week my Grandma left this earth to be with the Lord Jesus whom she loved so deeply.
We were all very close to her. In fact, she and my Grandpa lived with us for quite a long time.
I miss her vivacious spirit, her sparkly “never-give-up” attitude, love for the Lord, and her strength. She was the funnest Grandma and would get so giddy playing Rook. She’d laugh so hard at her own jokes…I loved her sense of humor. She had such spunk, even at 90 years of age!
My sister and I were with her an hour before she died and we were able to sing to her, read scripture, and talk to her. She wasn’t conscious, but we believe she could hear what we said. It was so hard to say goodbye, knowing this was probably the last time I could kiss her.
An hour later, we received the call that she had died.
We had a lot of tears, but in the end, we are so happy that she is with Jesus now…and she is happier than she ever was.
Heaven seems a lot closer now…and I’m so grateful that I will see her again. What a wonderful hope of heaven we have when we have given our hearts to God! I can’t imagine going through life without that hope…
Thank you to the ones who have already been praying for our family and sending lots of virtual hugs through Twitter! You guys are SO sweet and I appreciate you all.
I’ll be back to blogging in a few days…right now there’s just so much going on with planning and getting our lives organized…not to mention, my studies.
I love you Grandma, so glad this world isn’t all there is! I’ll see you again!
