In The Arms of The Angels

Hello,

Sunday evening my sweet Gramma went to be with Jesus in heaven.

Normally the weekend and beginning of the week is when I create and work on blog posts.

This past weekend I spent with family, and the beginning of this week has been so hard.

For those of you that don’t know, my grandparents are very precious to me.  My Mom was a single mom with two kids and my grandparents all but raised us while my Mom worked.  So my relationship with them is a bit different than a normal child grandparent relationship.

I find myself taking her passing much hard than I thought I would.  She battled Alzheimers for a long time, and I thought I would just feel relieved for her to be gone.  So that she would no longer be suffering.

Instead I find myself having a hard time functioning and not a second goes by that I am not thinking of her.

Her service will be this Saturday and I am hoping to find peace in laying her to rest.

In the mean time… please bare with me.  Know that I am wishing that my blog posts were up like normal and videos recorded.  But my heart has other plans.  Right now I just need to give myself permission to grieve and be sad.  Super hard for me to do.

I have posted below a couple of links to blog posts about my grandparents in case you’ve never seen them.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Wendy. I lost my mom to Alzheimer’s 2 years ago. I, too, thought it would be a blessing of peace when she passed, but it wasn’t . I just felt that I had lost her twice – once when her memory left and then when life flowed out of her body. I still miss her. I can only look forward to the day when I will join her, my dad and my grandparents in heaven. I grew up in a close knit family and my grandparents were a huge part of my life so I understand your closeness.

    Don’t worry about your videos or blog posts – take time to live in your thoughts and be with your family.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Wendy, she is home, I’m feeling your lost God Bless you all! I too lost my mom to Alzheimer’s and sad thing is when she passed I was not there with her. I lost mom 4 years ago and when I look at her picture which hangs over my computer, I feel so sad that she and my dad are not here with me… I miss them both so very much still… Take the time to grieve she will always be with you…. Love Luz

    I am so very sorry for your loss, sweetie. She is at peace and now the rest of your family must find that peace too. When I lost my husband to cancer, I too thought that it was a blessing when he died knowing he was not suffering anymore. But grief comes anyway. And it hurts too. Talk about a heartache. There really is such a thing. My body ached for my husband. My thoughts and prayers go out to you. May God bless you and your family at this sad time. I hesitate to use my nickname I have with you so I’ll just sign,

    With Love,
    Babe

    Wendy I watched your Seeet Tea video and enjoyed the banter between you all. Makes me think of my family, my parents who are both gone now too. How precious the videos are that we can look back on now to relive the memories. Things will slowly fall into place til then, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. My Mama went to be with the Lord suddenly the Thursday night before Christmas. I still feel I am operating in survival mode. Allow yourself time to grieve. Praying God would wrap His arms around you and give you His peace and comfort. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Wendy, my heart goes out to you, as I am in the same predicament as you, except it is my Mom who has the Alzheimer’s. I am preparing my self for the day she joins her parents in Heaven, I know it will not be easy. She is 91….and as your Gramma, some days she is with us, others, she does not have a clue. My prayers and thoughts are with you! Sending you a Hug! Memories keep us going! Remember all the good times, she is watching over you always.

    P.S. thanks for sharing your grandparents with us, I enjoyed watching the Sweet Tea video.

    My deepest condolences to you and your family. I truly know how your feel, when I lost my Grandfather, who was my absolute world, I was so grief stricken and angry I thought I was never going to feel the same again. But as my Mother used to say “Time heals”, it does, but you never ever forget their presence on this earth. I know your memories will give you some peace at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
