So when "Grammy" as we affectionately call her fell ill it was as if someone had pushed the "pause" button on my life. Everything stopped and all that was left was raw nerves and heart ache. There were so many thoughts going through my head. I tried to find the positive in it.........nothing. Finally a call from one of my sisters made all the difference. My grandmother told her to cheer up and let everyone know (in case she didn't make it) that she had lived a good life and was looking forward to seeing her friends and loved ones who had gone on before her. She was happy and excited to go to heaven.
She had experienced a vision prior to falling ill in which she saw heaven in all its splendor and vividly described it to my mother. She saw lots of people she loved there and was overwhelmed with peace, love and joy. In the vision she had stood at the gate wanting to go in so badly but an angel told her that it was not her time yet. And it wasn't. Though she is experiencing severe complications from diabetes at the moment she still continues to live life courageously and with joy. She is thankful for every moment, even if some of those moments are painful. I am not sure how everything will unfold with Grammy but I know that she will be all right even if this is her time. Her faith and love for God and the testimony of her life gives me that confidence. I will see her again.
