My Grandma Nellie, my dad's mom, turned 97 this past weekend. Isn't she beautiful?
My Grandma Flo, my mother's mom, is now in a nursing home. This is the Grandma that was told she just had a couple of weeks to live . . . back in March! I guess the Lord isn't ready to take her home yet. I hate to say it, but she is failing. However, when I saw her at the nursing home just a couple of weeks ago, she called me by name as soon as I walked in the door, and she asked about my husband by name. That is a blessing to me. To know that she still recognizes me. Sometimes I wonder if she does, but on that day I knew.
Family is a blessing. I know there are times I have taken my family for granted, I'm sure we all have. But during this Christmas season make a special effort to let each person in your family know just how loved they are. You never know what tomorrow will bring. So don't wait. "I Love You" are the three most under used words in the English language.
