I'm so blessed to have them in my life. I've been extra busy lately, but I wanted to take a small moment and update this blog. I took these pictures of the girls just before Church a bit ago and I think they turned out lovely. A & S give each other such sweet hugs and the three older girls just adore Eliza.
I've taken on a new responsibility in my life and I thoroughly enjoy it. DH's 94-year-old Grandmother has lived on her own for years in a town about an hour away. Four week ago, it was decided the time had come for her to move to assisted living in our town. The change has been very tough on her, and I've been very involved in her care. The first few weeks were pretty rough and I was checking on her several times a day and then staying with her in the evening. She had a cold, and fell once, wich didn't help matters much. I got babysitters after school nearly every day so I could be there and run errands. She has gradually adjusted to her surroundings, and life has settled into a routine with her. I go up every evening to help her until she goes to bed. It really is a privilege to serve her. I have a dear friend who worked as a hospice nurse for years before staying home with her children. This friend told me she really misses the work, and we connected as I told her how much I love helping Grandma. She told me how once as she was cleaning a woman's feet, she was reminded of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples.
I don't suppose Grandma has many more years to live, and I hope to make her life a bit easier for her in the time she has left.
