“God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
On Tuesday my grandmother made her final journey home to the Lord. Her strength and courage was admirable to say the least. Seeing her with stage four breast cancer was not easy, but I knew once her time came she definitely earned her wings. Although I will miss her dearly. I know she is in a much, much better place. She is walking the streets of gold looking as beautiful as ever.
Death is a weird thing. And everyone processes it different. It is a reminder that we may take things for granted and stress the small stuff more than we should. Life will always have it’s ups and downs. But it is truly a gift that should be cherished every single day.
Yesterday while I was in Oklahoma City. I made my first trip to Trader Joe’s. The first thing I saw when I walked in was a display full of different colored roses. Roses are my absolute favorite. All I could think about in that moment was how my grandma is now a gorgeous rose that will forever be in my heart. And even though I may not see it in the moment, but everything happens for a reason. God knows what he is doing. We just need to have a little more faith.
Love you my sweet grandmother ❤
