I am thankful for my grandmother. She is the only grandparent I still have with me. And as much as it sometimes taxes me to hear about every illness suffered by every member of our extended family, I am very blessed to be able to pick up the phone and talk to her. And I make it a point to do so at least once a week. While she is in good health, mentally and physically, she is in her mid-eighties, and I recognize that there probably aren’t many years left that I’ll be able to have a weekly chat with her. She’s a wonderful woman who believes in the strength of family, who gives (sometimes too much) of herself to her church, her family, and her friends. She’s a source of advice, has a surprising sense of humor, and has balanced out my crazy mother over the years. I truly believe she is an angel here on earth.
