What an amazing, precious moment to have captured on video. Wow. <3
I couldn't agree with you more. Absolute preciousness. I love how their laughs are so similar...
I've been reading your blog for a long time. I don't remember how I found it. Your blog about your mother today came up in my Bloglovin' feed and then I watched this video after I read it. To say it devastated me is an understatement. My grandmother died of Alzheimer's four years ago this January and I have another grandmother with rapidly progressing dementia. We won't have her as long as we'll want to. I guess that's the way of it always, though. We won't get to keep anyone as long as we'd like. Reading about your grief absolutely shakes the ground on which I stand every time. It's terrifying and beautiful all at the same time. I don't have much to offer you, but I will tell you what my grandfather did right before my Grandma passed. He sat on the edge of her hospital bed and said, "Well, lover, we've had some good times and some bad times. But I only ever think of the good ones. I love you. I'll love you always. And I'll see you in the morning." I think of this every single day. I don't know your theology. Matter of fact, I'm not quite I'm certain of my own. But I have to believe, deep down in my heart of hearts, that I will see her again in some morning somewhere, whatever that means. "What are you thinking, mama?" "I'm loving you." That's all we can do. We love and hope beyond hope that, somewhere, they're still loving us too. I think so.
Oh Katie... " I guess that's the way of it always, though. We won't get to keep anyone as long as we'd like." You're so right...I'm so sorry about your Grandma... and I'm even more sorry that you are going through more sadness with your other Grandma's dementia. So much sadness; it's a wonder the heart can take it sometimes.I cried when I read your Grandpa's words spoken to your Grandma before she passed... (I'm still crying about it.) What a sweet sentiment and promise. And, I'm with you - I believe that I will see my Mom again, too. I know I will. And when I do, we'll hug. I can't wait for that hug. And you'll hug your Grandma, too."What are you thinking, Mama? "I'm lovin' you..."So sweet.Oh, so sweet.Thank you so much for your comment, your support and words mean a lot to me. I'm so sorry for all you've been through and for what you're going through.kb
