Called to the bedside

It might be time to let my grandma go.

My grandma IS my sense of family. She has been there for my sister and I for years when our mother chose not to be.

She is who my idea of family revolves around.

She is the foundation of my world. Of my childhood. Of my kids' world.

We have been through HELL as she has aged with family drama that is so not worth the effort to explain other than to say that those "family" members tried to cost us time with her for their own selfish needs.

She has pneumonia. I am flying out to where she is any minute.


3 hour drive. A flight BACK to Vancouver, a flight North to Edmonton.

I just need to be there. In a way that I can't explain.

Please pray I have time. Please. That's all I want is time enough to get there. I need the prayers of many.

PLEASE God, please.

Hey, Jen - my thoughts and prayers are with you. Dear Lord, I pray that You'll give Jen (and all her family) strength and courage, draw near to them and comfort them, shower them with Your love and healing. AMEN. And p.s., Lord, Thank You for the relationship that Jen has with her Gramma all these years, and all the time that they've been able to share, for all that her Gramma has instilled in Jen that's made her the awesome lady that she is.
