Your birth was one of the last clear memories I had from around that time last year…(May 23, 2012)
After that it seems that things quickly went downhill.
But God in His mercy and love granted me extended time
You were over 3 months old before my life kicked in again.
But the joy of you was one of the things that gave me the drive,
That gave me the will to push myself to get strong and well.
Your smile lights up my heart
Your giggle tickles my soul.
When your little hands reach out for me, I want to dance in delight.
What joy you bring, how my spirit doth sing
With love for you, my sweet little baby grandgirl.
Fighting to overcome death, then having people tell you all this stuff about 3 months of your life and you remember none of it, well it is scary. Then having to go to Rehab to learn to walk and function again. I’ll be honest, I wanted so many times to give up (and still have days I fight it) but then one of my precious grandkids can call and say, “Hey, Nana, I love you.” and I am reminded again, I will never give up because Alexis, Charisma, Asher, and Makayla are worth fighting for. God blessed me beyond measure when He gave me two sons that stayed in school, both won full scholarships. Stayed in church, one is a pastor, one is in a praise and worship band. But when God gave me granchildren, He out did himself.
They truly light up my life with love, laughter, and joy.
