The Battle is Over

On Sunday it will be two weeks of her being gone. My Granny no longer has to fight with the cancer that tourmented her wonderful life. I was able to get back in time to spend the last few days with her and to also be right by her side with my mom and aunt as she passed. It was a painful but beautiful gift and I may eventually share it, but for now I wait for things to get easier and for life to feel normal again. Branden had to stay back in Ireland and being away from him these past two weeks has not been easy at all, but he arrives on the 4th and it can't come soon enough. God has been so good to our family through all of this and I keep resting in Him while I adjust to a world without her.

  1. I'm so very sorry. At least you got to be there with her. Take as much time as you need.

    It's a horrendous disease. My mother passed away from cancer early this month.

  5. My heart goes out to you, Padded Cell Princess. I hope she's in a better place now. Come to think of it, the last time I cried was on August 10, 2008 when my Granny said goodbye to all of us.

  7. I'm very sorry. My parents passed away many years ago. I miss them more now than I did at first. I try to focus on their good qualities and the gifts they gave me.

    Love,
    Janie

  9. I'm sorry about your grandmother. You seem to be handling it very well, all things considered. It can be hard to still thank God after a death sometimes.
