I always thought my grandma would meet our daughter. My Grandma is 89...and was in great health considering her age. Then on Sunday she had a stroke and is in the hospital 7 hours away. She isn't expected to live long...they are keeping her comfortable. But, we know the day is almost here when Jesus will take her home...to a place that she's been longer for, for sooo long. My Grandpa has been gone 14 years now...and I'm sure she misses him dearly.
Today we got to "talk" to her on the phone...or should I say...I talked and she listened. It was nice to be able tell her I loved her...even though I know she knows it. Ryden sang her "Slippery Fish"...his favorate song from pre-school and also a Veggie Tales song. Grandma's eyes got so big when Ryden was singing...my mom said she LOVEd it. It was only a few weeks ago all 4 of us sat in her room chatting with her and giving her big hugs. Trennon got to write in her book beside her bed that she jots in every day. Ryden drew a picture. She has a very keen mind and has the most wonderful hand writing. My Grandparents were missionaries for over 40 years in Northern Saskatchewan to the Native people and my grandma did a lot of writing over the years.
Thankfully my mom reminded us to take the camera...so we have some wonderful pictures of all of us. I think I'll post one with this note. My Grandma loved seeing the boys on our visit and thought they were just two wonderful little men. (I tend to agree!) She is such a happy lady and always puts Christ first in her life. Those are two things I love about my Grandma!
I thought I was going to get through this day without crying...but...I was wrong! :-) It was nice to get some good adoption news today though...we will be celebrating that tonight! :-)
