My grandma is not doing well. 😔 Her condition has deteriorated suddenly in the past few months, and all of us have been scrambling to meet her needs and take the best care of her. It has been tough, especially on an emotional level.
She was the one who brought us up, taking care of us grandchildren when we were little. There are so many memories that I hold dear…memories that I put aside on most days because I am afraid that once I let them out, my tears will just gush out.
But once in a while, like last night…I really had no control over my tears.
When Bren comforted me saying we’ll keep praying for her, I broke down. The tears were flowing with heartbreak for what my grandma is going through.
God still reigns, I tell myself. He is our good Heavenly Father who heals, who comforts us in our distress, and who is sovereign over every situation we find ourselves in.
We continue to make time for her, chat with her, and love her in ways that are within our capacity.
For however long her remaining journey is, only God knows, and we give thanks for we know that He is walking alongside her.
For now, my heart is cherishing every moment we get to spend together.
And when Ellie grows up, I’ll have lots of stories to share with her about her amazing great-grandma. 💗
