Grandma's Angel Story

Remember in my angel post when I talked about Grandma and her story about the truck almost going over a cliff? Well, I dug around and found her telling the story on video. And let me tell you... she would kill me if she knew I was posting this. She had just undergone heart bypass surgery and wasn't able to go to the 'beauty shop' and get her hair done. I still think she looks beautiful.

I can't watch this without crying. Not because of the story. Not because of the way she told it--she was nervous being on camera. But because I was sitting there... right next to her on her bed. What I wouldn't give to be there again. Don't take it for granted, y'all. Cherish every second of being together. They are so precious.

You do an amazing job keeping her memory alive! I obviously never met her, but I feel like I know her because you spend so much talking about her and I KNOW what a precious, sweet, and loving lady she was! I LOVED this video. It reminds me of my Gma Amy, whom I was named for. She lived with me and Ammorae when we lived alone. She lost her eye sight and she taught me everything I know about cooking and entertaining. I was her eyes and she was my...well everything! She passed away in with the two of us in our home and I miss her like crazy and I know she's my guardian angel. I feel her from time to time.
