Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was great love! Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning ~ Psalm 30:5

Granny truly lived life to the fullest. She loved to travel and watch westerns. Her biggest joy was her family. Even though she was an only child, she had numerous cousins who were more like siblings. The bonds they formed are still going strong through many generations. Going to granny’s house was always an adventure. Whether we were playing in the creek, painting our fingernails with polk salad berries, climbing the old dogwood tree or stringing beans – there was never a dull minute.
In her later years, when her mind started slipping, one thing remained the same, her desire to be involved in whatever her great-grandkids were doing. All she needed was time to comb her hair and get her shoes on. As her time on earth was coming to an end, we all reminded her of how much we loved her. As her body grew more tired, we all assured her that it was ok for her to get her shoes on and go. There is no doubt that the moment she was absent from her body she was present with the Lord. What a celebration she is having with so many that have gone before her. Although our hearts are broken, we are standing on the Lord’s promise of a reunion day and oh what a day that will be!!
