Love, Tears, and Laughter
Posting may be sporadic here for a while. My grandmother, 97 years old and as strong a woman as ever, has decided she’s gotten as old as she needs to get. An illness took her to the hospital last week, and she decided over the weekend that she wanted her I.V. out. A large portion of her family gathered to be with her on Monday, and I have to say, it was very much like a party. She was weak, but completely herself, and loving seeing everybody. What a blessing to get to honor her and celebrate her life while she is still living! I am home for a few days right now, but am going back on Friday, and don’t know what to expect from there, beyond love, tears, and laughter.
