A New Beginning

My grandma is all moved in to her new home!
It's amazing to me when I consider that just five weeks ago we were making plans for her to move to Hospice. And here she is, moved out of re-hab and into a new apartment. She has worked so hard, and God has been so faithful. Wednesday morning she told me, "It's like I'm getting a new beginning. A new chance at life."
Though I am sorry for the fall she took, the pain she has endured, and the struggles she will continue to face, I can honestly say some of the best times I have had with my grandmother have been the times I have spent with her over the past month. We have talked together, cried together, and prayed together. God has strengthened the bond between us, and I am so thankful.
He does that, you know. Takes the hard times and makes something wonderful come from them. I love Him so!

Doesn't my grandmother look great??? She's going to be 92 years old next week. Hey, if you'd like to help her celebrate, email me. (karen(at)irritablemother(dot)com) I'll give you my address and you can send her a card. I'll take them all over to her on the 16th.

Hope you have a wonderful day. See you back here tomorrow for This Week's WORD!

God bless your grandmother! How awesome that you've been able to spend such special time together. My grandmother is 92 also, although she lives across the country, I love the time we have gotten to spend together recently.

Blessings,
