I LOVED this Woman....Thank you Jesus.
Some people see Divine gifts as a blessings. I was home on Thanksgiving 2009 when it occurred to me that my Grandmother would be spending the holiday of Thanks alone in the Facility. Grabbing my coat, I left to go have dinner with her, but there was something else....an intuitive feeling that I would never, ever see her alive again. You have NO idea what it's like to go and see the woman you've loved all your life for the last time, and KNOW, it's your last time....Oh What a Night.....
I don't pretend to know why God does what He does. Just when I think He's going to zig, He zags...always staying one step ahead of my intellect. In His wisdom and Grace, He was allowing me on last time with her humor, and stubborn pride. It was so endearing to hear her say my name, in that British Ozarkian accent one last time. Sigh.....To this day, one of the hardest thing I have EVER done, was leave that room and close the door behind me, because He....I was RIGHT....she died on December 16, 2009.

There is a tear in my eye at the unexpected memory of the day the Lord, the Graceful Father of all things, allowed me to say Goodbye. I got to walk her to the "door" but that "Blessing" I only realized in hindsight. Here I was thinking, using my intellect and whatnot....and the Lord Zagged......I miss that British humor, the accent, the steadfast attitude that say's, "I'll take you on...and the horse you rode in on too". Alas, she didn't go far...did she Duchess? That's the thing about apples.....they never fall far...do they? They say hindsight is 20/20 for a reason..Okay, I get it now! If you think THAT'S good story, wait until I tell you about her ghost....Earth Angels....tomorrow's Daily Affirmation. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example.
