the greatest woman who ever lived

If I asked you who was the greatest woman who ever lived, you might answer "Joan of Arc" or "Rosa Parks" or someone who went down in history for some remarkable deed worthy of mention by a people or a nation, but if you were to ask me, I would have to tell you that the greatest woman who ever lived was my grandmother. She sacrificed and worked her whole life to provide for her children and her grandchildren to make sure they were fed, clothed and loved with every part of her being. She was the most remarkable woman I ever met. So full of love, courage and wisdom. She always had the answer for a question, a recipe for an empty belly, a remedy for a wound or illness or a hug for hungry soul. If I ever aspire to be half the woman she was, I will consider my life a success.

My grandma passed away last Friday. She was 90 years old, born July 12, 1917. She lived through the depression, and several wars, was married for almost 70 years to the same man and raised 3 children and 2 grandchildren. She was loved and she blessed many. She will be missed, but I hope to see her again some day in paradise.

Good bye grandma.

disclaimer:  caution must be taken when reading my blog.  i'm a new creature and the Lord continues to mold and shape me through his will.  older entries may seem to contradict the newer ones.  there's a pretty good chance that they do for two reasons.  first, because of my nature, as i strive for perfection, i will continue to fall short of the mark and should therefore be thankful for his grace and should seek his (and your) forgiveness for having been so foolish in the past.   second, i continue to grow in him; and as changes are made, i have made attempts to change my blog to reflect those changes. in this event, please refer to #1.   if you're interested in perfection, my blog isn't the place to be.  pick up a king james bible (yup, i'm one of THOSE people) and read his PERFECT word.
