One Word Wednesday: Connection
My two kids and I live with my 92 year old grandma. She has had a lot of problems with her knees in the last several years. There is no cartilage left in them at all plus arthritis. She recently had a total knee replacement on the left knee. This put me in a position to really truly care for her. Of course I didn’t mind this at all, as she has taken care of me all of my life. My father was killed when I was 9 so my grandparents were a huge help to my mom, my sister and I.
Grandma and I share a very special and deep connection. I thank God for this connection that we have. I have lived with her for quite a while now and we are just as close as two people can be. She is not only my grandma but a mom, and best friend as well. I thank God that I was put in the position of needing a place to live and grandma inviting us to stay with her. I never dreamed I would be here as long as I have but I do believe it has been a true blessing.
I hope to always be connected the way we are as long as she is around. She is such a God fearing and caring lady who loves the Lord with her whole being. I thank God for her and for the connection that we have.
