I find it a bit interesting that I am doing these art classes and reflecting back on all that has happened recently with my grandma and other events in my life.
As some of you might know by now, my 91-year-old grandmother
died May 29 from injuries sustained in a car accident on May 27. It was
just bad news all the way around. The car was driven by her youngest
son, my uncle, who is now 67 years old. My grandma suffered a broken
neck, multiple head injuries, broken ribs, bruises. It has been a very
sad time as we all miss her terribly and feel lost without her. I try to
keep my head above the water as I know she is reunited with all our
loved ones who had already passed on..but her absence is daunting to say
the least. I was so blessed to have her in my life as long as I
did...and being able to see her every week as she lived only 7-10 miles
One of her favorite songs was "Open My Eyes That I May
See"...which made me think of one of my favorites "Open The Eyes of My
We buried my grandmother on Monday. She loved the
Lord probably more than anyone else I know. She only knew how to SERVE
those around her with LOVE. If she was not serving or doing something
for someone other than herself, or cooking for someone or crocheting
baby hats, booties and afghans for donations, she was truly lost. She
was her happiest serving. She was a good representative of being as
Christ-like here on Earth as any human could be.
My son and I
love her so much and miss her even more. She was a very strong, healthy
woman and I think if this had not happened, I imagine she would still be
busy serving us all up with her love.
I tried to do this page in honor of her and how she loved that particular song.
My little one this week is very, very primitive lol
