We never know how long we have
I have put off posting this blog because it’s so close to my heart, the thing to truly note here is that I wrote the original blog Feb 18th 2012 and my grandmother passed away Sep 2012, just 7 months later. I am so lucky because after writing the original blog, I did have many special moments with my grandmother, including a couple full days where we were able to just talk about anything and everything, but truly, there could never be enough time. I wanted to share this because we ALL think we have tomorrow, not realizing that tomorrow is not promised – the only moments we truly have are the ones we are living ” now ” !

My beautiful grandmother – I had a wonderful visit with her today, I haven’t seen her in weeks, we have constantly had sickness in the house, nan is on oxygen and has many other things going on so we can’t get her sick where she has a compromised immune system. She lives in her own little granny suit that is connected to where my parents live so she is blessed to have my mother there with her and she looks after her wonderfully. Before this, I didn’t see her as often as I wanted because I think we always think we have forever with the people we love until we don’t one day. Currently we don’t have a vehicle so that adds a complication in getting around but I have spent a lot of time trying to create the life I want over the last few months and this meant change in many areas. To continue my physical and emotional health, to change jobs and do something that made me happy and gave me pride for work ( my coaching work ) and in this plan is spending more time with the ones I love ( all my family that I love ) and trying to see my nanny weekly, as it’s a blessing that I am able to do so. Just a little reminder that time stands still for no one and to reach out and tell the people we love how we feel, while we can

My grandmother is a beautiful, strong woman, she has worked hard for everything she has ever had in life and has maintained a sense of humor in all the things she has been faced with. Just don’t creep up on her with a spider or ALL rules are out.. LOVE YA NANNY XO
