Updates On Life!

I am off to visit my Grand for the weekend and just wanted to fill you in on my where abouts! I've been busy with the store, updating new product and even have a GuideCraft Give-Away in the works! Thank You Rob!! So keep a look out for that...Coming Soon!

My Grand is "91" and she is a hoot! A rebel from the 40's and a Sassy Lady! She is dying from cancer, but my Dad and Uncle have chosen not to tell her, so she could be at peace in her last days. I wasn't too sure about that at first, but I see it as an act of kindness now. She has her salvation and stuff in order already, even down to the dress she wants to be buried in, so I'm pretty sure she "does" know.

The Doctors told us she could be here for 2 weeks or for up 6 months. It's been almost 3 months now and she is still kicking! :) She was always a fighter and she is still fighting today! The cancer is in her brain and spine and is slowly making her skin and bone. Cancer, is a horrible thing! I lost my favorite Aunt ( her daughter and my Dad's only Sister) to breast cancer in 1993, because it had spread to her brain. It was quick and she just went to sleep and never woke up. When I go, I hope it's just like that!
I like to always look for the best in everything and even in the face of death there "Is" a best! My Grand has never been close to us kids. There are 3 of us... Me-Laura, the oldest, Sister-Belinda, middle child and Brother-Champ, the baby. She was always closer to my Aunts kids, the one who passed from breast cancer, and would hang with them. To make a l*o*n*g story short...this is finally "Our" time.
My Sister and I spend the weekends at her house taking care of her and just talk! She is bedridden because she can't use her legs anymore so we watch Lawrence Welk reruns, go through photos, watch Joel and other great Preachers and are making up for all the years that we have missed and She is too, making up for lost time! Her words! :)
So, I'm off to visit her for the weekend and just wanted to let you all know what has been happening in our lives. Please be in Prayer for her and our family. Thank you and have a Blessed weekend!
"Grand" Christmas 2009
