Say a little prayer

J's gramma has been not doing so well for a long time now. She has had both hips replaced and after the last one was done it has kind of been down hill from there. I had to tell J the news last night that it is going to be anytime now as they have taken her off the oxygen that has basically been a huge reason she has lasted so long. I feel so helpless. He is so far away from me the girls and even farther from the rest of his family. I remember watching my grandma die..... not an easy thing to do.

I was thinking about Tina last night and the women that she is. She has 5 children, 14 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren....so far!! She married the love of her life and is what I consider a free spirit. She was never afraid to give me her opinion of anybody! and had a great sense of humor. She is adored by her children grandchildren and great grandchildren. To me that speaks volumes.

I was picturing her being free from this earthly body that is failing so quickly. Free to run and walk and see her loved ones again. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord and what a better place to be then with our Creator.

Please pray for peace for Grampa.....I can't imagine what he is going through right now, after over 50 years of marriage! tough stuff. Pray for the rest of the family, for continued peace and unity. Pray for J as he prepares to travel down to the coast soon to be with his family. Pray that gramma doesn't suffer. Pray for my little girls, Hailey took it really hard last night, which surprised me cuz we haven't spent too much time with gramma lately, but she was all tears and had a huge sense of loss. This is a hard time of year to lose a loved one, no time is a good time but it makes it a bit tougher I think.

This is definitely a very hard time to lose your loved one. My MIL held out as long as she could to get through Christmas (her FAVORITE time of year) and her b-day which is December 27. She finally went into the hospital the day after her b-day and never came home. We lost her to leukemia on Jan 5th, 2004.

My FIL has such a hard time with the holiday season. They were married 52 years. It helps that we spend LOTS of time with him. I pray for peace for all of you. I know your pain.
