Saying Goodbye and a Special Gift

I was able to take the kids and myself over to my grandmother’s house on Sunday.  We tried to go Saturday but it was just not a good idea.  It was so sad to see a women I’ve come to know and love that is as some say a spitfire.  She was feisty full of life and could drink any man under the table.  This tumor has taken a toll on her body and she is fading quickly.  She still has her sense of humor and quick wit.  She had me and my cousin laughing over the silly things she said today.  I will have the family go down one more time before we leave on Wednesday.  I have a sinking feeling by the time we return from Disney she will not be the same. 

The boys did so good, no fussing and no back talking they gave her hugs and didn’t ask many questions.  Cole and I had a talk on the drive home about GG going home to God.  He has a good understanding of what is happening but I don’t think connect all the dots yet.  They sadly have been like me while I was young and not very close to her but I know they love her just like I do.

I had the boys make up a little something for her.  I found this on project Pinterest for Valentines day.  It turned out so cute and she loved it.

I added in a little saying for her with the trick I used on the canvas we made for my dad.

I painted the boys hands first, now I accidently put the words too high so our hand heart didn’t turn out the best but still cute.  I then used both boys feet (the one I modeled it off only used one foot).

    The gift is so sweet. So sorry about her declining health. My family in Florida calls my dad GG for Great Grandpa. ((HUGS))
