was absolutely fabulous!
On December 21, the kids and I went out to visit her.
But this time, it was all for ME. It's hard for me to really connect with her when my children are present. She loves when the kids are there and I know we fill her home with enough love and energy to last a few weeks...
but I wanted some alone time. :)
So, I arranged some care and off I went.
On New Year's Day, she fell and broke her finger.
But that didn't stop her from enjoying a hot cup of green tea with me.
As I laid on the couch enjoying my hot cup of tea, my (most favorite) Aunt Karen treated me to a pedicure. Am I spoiled or what??!!
I love you so much, Auntie Karen!
And I love you too, Grandma Mary. I am so thankful that I got to spend a few hours with you today.
Today was very special to me.
One of the best parts of the visit was when I first got there and she was sleeping. I crawled in bed with her (because I'm always up for a nap!) and curled up beside her and just listened to her breath.
I shut my eyes and thanked God for giving her 98 years.
I thanked God for today - and this alone time with her.
I thought to myself, "This day is perfect."
Grandma Mary, I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU.
