And just like that, she’s gone. Out of this life as I’ve known it. Spreading her wings and soaring into the arms of Jesus. Elevated beyond the beautiful shell that housed her soul for only a time.
Blessed to have had her arms wrap themselves around me on the watch given to me by the divine.
The single greatest blessing of my entire life. The embodiment of unconditional love and grace. Safety and sovereignty tucked quietly behind silver tendrils and glasses that framed the bluest eyes that held truth that shot out from them.
My heart aches in waves of grief as I ride out the reflections of time and tide that held her face at every turn. There for it all. Every moment significant and seemingly small. She was a big deal. The greatest love I’ve ever known, next to Jesus. And I’m not sure how to be with the sadness I feel coupled with the joy I feel for the freedom of her spirit. So I just allow it all. To flow out. Because that’s what love does. It gives way to the heart until it bursts wide open with light that envelops you in the warmth of the souls you were blessed to do life with.
Grandma, you were my heart and soul. The greatest teacher and most trusted friend. I pray that you know the profound gratitude I have for all that you were, are and forever will be. Thank you for Everything. I love you forever…
For my beloved sweet Gram~
