Gratitude List #5

Got the news yesterday that my grandmother passed away. She was my only surviving grandparent, so I am very saddened by it. She had been declining in health over the past couple of years and got to a very bad point recently. She was no longer recognizing her immediate family. I am very grateful for my memories with her and I do gain comfort from knowing she isn't suffering anymore. I was going to just do a normal gratitude post, but I just wanted to share about my grandmother, or as we all called her, MawMaw.
The things I'm thankful for this week:
  • Independence. 
  • Knowing that God is always with us, when we are happy and when we are sad.
  • The beauty of the night sky.
  • Community.
  • The memories I have of MawMaw and her sense of humor.

I'm so sorry Jessica :( These things are always tough. I am glad you can recognize the positive influence she had in your life and, even though it's painful, it's always a good thing when those we love aren't suffering anymore. ((((HUGS!))))

Sorry to hear about your grandma. I have a feeling one of my grandmas will be passing soon. Never an easy thing.
