Sincerely 'Fro Me to You- My Grandma and Grandpa

This is my Grandma and Grandpa. We just recently went on a cruise to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. We had a blast. I choose this picture because I simply love it. The love they share after 50 years, four kids, grandbabies, great-grandbabies, death, life, hard times and so much more shines so bright.
My Grandma was one of the best woman I had ever known. She is struggling with mid- late alzheimers now. It is so hard to watch her slip away. I am so glad that I can remember her just how she was- but I am sad that my kids won't. Her love for the Lord is so evident. She might not be able to remember where she is but turn on an old church hymn or any Gaither music and she will start singing and humming right along. It's truly beautiful.

My Grandpa is one of the most amazing men I have every met. His love, loyalty, and dedication to his family is seen everyday. He is right now exhausting himself by watching over his 97 yo mother and his wife. He seldom asks for help and he NEVER complains. With all of this going on- he always finds time to lend an ear or hand to anyone else he knows.

These two people are servants for the Lord and I am so blessed to know them and learn from them. They are both definently angels in disguise.
