Yesterday I mentioned how I was grateful for the things God has given me right? And was probably one of the most smoothest happier days I've experienced since my mom died because with me being a caregiver for my sick grandma, me having fibromyalgia and a handful of problems with other stuff its not very often that we have an entirely good day and its sometimes very hard to remember the things i should be grateful for.
So I really am going to start everyday that I blog with something I am greatful for. I hope this will open my eyes to what I do have and help me be a better person in God and for those who surround me...
Today I am thankful for having my grandma physically still with me, her mind may be stolen away at times from the dementia but i can still physically see her, i can hear her voice i can touch her....I can tell her daily i love her. I am so very lucky that I am given the gift of taking care of my grandma in her time of need. She means everything to me and I'm thankful so much for her.
She truly has been the wind beneath my wings my entire life, she is a true woman of god, she still prays daily before meals even on her days that she doesn't remember much she still prays....I wanna be that strong in my faith...I wanna be a vessel of gods unconditional love to someone someday like she has been to me....without her love i never woulda found god...i never woulda believed in him...i never woulda known that unconditional love and forgiveness....
I am very thankful for her and that she was one of my best friends from the time i was a little girl until now...I am a very happy to have had her and even more happy to be able to be a sorta parent for her now that she is not able to do some things. it truly makes me feel like im the richest person in the world to help someone who is so wonderful.
My grandma and I's song is the Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler.
She give me a heart trinket box one year for my birthday that plays our song.
She truly is my hero. She has lived a great loving life.
