Despite the fact that she was not feeling good we had a good visit. I was able to spend a few precious moments with her one night before she went to bed. I laid with her and just told her how much I loved her, how proud I was of her, what a wonderful grandmother she was, and how I knew that one day she was going to be well again. She told me, "We'll see each other again", "we'll be with each other", "I'm going to be well again", "I know you are going to do great things ", and, "I love you." I guess in a way we said goodbye to each other. Hopefully I will be able to see her again this side of Heaven, but if not I feel so blessed I was able to be with her and share that tender time.
On Saturday afternoon my cousin Fran and her little boy Graham (Jacob's favorite second cousin) came over and we played, and played, and played. I wish these two lived closer.
