My Grandma

My grandmother passed away on October 11, 2011.

I have been thinking a lot about what I would say about that - and her - on my blog.
I still don't know what I am going to write, but I guess that doesn't matter because what I remember is more important.  

She was wonderful. Loving, kind and caring.
I remember her hugs and sitting in her lap.
She taught me many, many things.
She was a great example.
She had an unshakable faith in God.
She was a Prayer Warrior.
She was loved.

Her passing has taught me things.
Always reach out - even if you think that person doesn't know or understand...and pray that they do.
Prayer is powerful.
Your children and grandchildren are your legacy.

What got me through it was my willingness to praise God. I praised God for choosing me to be my grandmother's granddaughter. I praised God for the time He shared her with us. I praised God for all that she did for me and how she helped to make me who I am today. I praised God.

Here I am - on earth - wishing she was here. But I know that she is heaven, wishing I was there, but enjoying watching over me, Freddy, Carly and the rest of her family.

What a great post Cheryl! I am sure your grandmother is very proud of the way you are thinking about her and her death. A loss like this is so hard, but knowing Him makes it so much more bearable. Hugs!!
