Three Great-Grandmothers at Christmas...
Monday, April 06, 2015
I have two granddaughters who are very special to me. Now nine and eleven years old, they bring joy into my life in immeasurable ways. They live about an hour away in the Atlanta area, and I feel very blessed to have them as a special part of my life.
At Christmas, the girls made homemade gifts for all three of their great-grandmothers. They shared their love with my mother, my mother-in-law and their father's grandmother. Hugs and kisses from these girls brightened the lives of these dear ladies. One by one the girls are losing those special bonds in quick succession.
My dear mother-in-law passed away in January. My precious mother just passed away in March. Now today they are calling the family in from across the country as their third and final great-grandmother is dying in the hospital. Three great-grandmothers in just three months. Sigh. The sorrow is great today throughout the family.
