She's not been doing well the last 5 yrs and after a few falls and the onset of Alzheimer's, she now resides in a rehab care facility.Frankly she has been missed my many. There are those who are so knew they do not know about her. They have missed meting and getting to know a great, caring, and giving woman of God, and now those stories, the people she has impacted are no longer remembered, but they've not forgotten her.
When I arrived, she as found on the front row, listening to a group lead a worship time/church for the residents. We wheeled her down the hallway a bit to not disturb others, I wondered if it were a mistake going there, but I know God had been prompting me to go, and go I did. As I knelt there talking to her, she sat in her wheel chair, patting my cheek with her gnarled hand, smiling and laughing. "I'm going to see you in church Sunday! I will! I'm tired of missing," she declared! Tears welled up in my eyes. As I kissed her forehead, leaving a lipstick stain behind, she smiled and laughed again. "That's alright Girl, it's ALRIGHT. Though she no longer remembers me, she clearly remembers Him.
I miss Grandma Susie.
