You know when you have gotten bad news, but it is so easy to think about everything else and not face it….I have been doing that all day.
This morning my great grandmother, Gigi, passed away. She was 88 and fighting cancer and Alzheimer’s. But that is not my Gigi.
My Gigi was a very spunky lady!
She seemed to never stop. She loved each one of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren. She loved the Lord. She loved a cute pair of shoes. She loved playing bunko at her senior center. She taught me how to make her secret chocolate pie. I recently found out she painted.
I want to be like her. To never stop enjoying life.
I am so blessed to have known her.
As I write this and process it all, I am sad that I can’t spend more precious time with her. I am thankful that Jeff was able to meet her and get to know her too. I am thankful that we were able to see her a week ago. At our visit is was apparent it wouldn’t be much longer, but it was nice to enjoy family at Easter since we can’t be with them now. As crazy as this sounds, I was fortunate to know six of my great grandparents! It is hard not to mourn all of their losses now, as Gigi was the very last one still alive. It is comforting to know she is with the Lord, healed, and praising her Savior.
What a blessing is was to know my Gigi.
*Thanks for letting me process. I will update you all on our week in Georgia soon.
