My Great Gran

First of all, let me apologize for being such a blog neglector...I know you all missed me so much!

Anyway, I would love for all of you to keep my family in your prayers. My great grandma, affectionately known as "Great Gran" is not doing well, and it looks as though she may be in the end stages of her life. She is 99 years old, and will be 100 in December! Her body has started shutting down in the past few weeks, and the Hospice nurse said she thinks it might only be a few days. I went to see her last Wednesday and after seeing the condition she is in, I pray that the Lord takes her home to Him soon so she doesn't have to suffer. I know she is ready to be reunited with lots of special people.

That being said, losing her will be a huge loss for our family, especially if it happens before Thanksgiving. The Smith side of the family gets together every year at Thanksgiving, and it is already going to be hard without my Dad, since we lost him in June. Also, my poor Grandpa will have lost 2 sons and 2 brothers, and now his mom...say an extra prayer for strength for my grandpa as he might have to perform another family member's funeral. I appreciate all the prayers! Below is a picture of Great Gran and me from Thanksgiving last year...isn't she cute??

  1. So sorry to hear about your great gran. I will pray for healing in whatever form that may come. I feel especially sad for your grandpa too. That certainly makes for a very rough year. Love ya girl! Let me know if there's anything I can do.
