All my life I’ve had my Grandma there, in the last couple years I was blessed to have saw her much more frequently as my Mom would be watching Miles and her, together! Miles would ride along to her hair appts, doctors and to the clinic! He loved Grandma and was never scared to see her in hospital etc! Yesterday, my Grandma passed away, and to be honest the only comfort felt was from Miles saying that she is okay now and she will be okay! Wise words from this 3 year old, and realizing that my Grandma will no longer have to be in any pain or discomfort brings ease to our pain. I’m so blessed to have been raised by such a strong independent beautiful outspoken matriarch of our family! The women of our family have these same qualities and like our Grandma, we keep it 💯 at all times! I love how proud I knew that she was of me in these last months, she made me feel the most beautiful as I would come to her house in my work clothes (she would tell me how nice i looked, if I didn’t she would have told me otherwise cuz she kept it real like that) and she would smile at the sight of Miles and I walking in...I will always remember a couple months ago taking her to her dialysis appt and before she walked out the door she turned and looked in the mirror, fixing her hair and looking at herself! She always cared about how she looked and presented herself! I admired her so much then for her strength and beauty, that no matter what not to give up on yourself to always take care of yourself, to LOVE yourself! My Grandma lived a long life and being around her Grandkids and GreatGrandkids brought her so much joy! I know her presence is well received in heaven! For she is now with my Grandpa, my dear brother Mikey, my Auntie Esther, I pray for our peace and am blessed to now have gained another Guardian Angel! #Blessed #Protected #ThankYouGod #Grateful for our #Family at this time more than ever! #ILoveYouGrandmaPat My boys and I will miss you so very much!
