On Our Very Truly Special Grandma and her Brave Heart and Strong Emotions During Our Hard Week
When I was thinking about what to write about I went to my Sister Lindsay and tell her that I want to write on our Blog to honor my Grandma Bea. I love you grandma in all the places in my heart. You give me hope in my life and care about me and I want to carry that with me everywhere I go. I want to write about my Grandma and what I write is called,
“On My Very Truly Special Grandma and Her Brave Heart and Strong Emotions During Our Hard Week”
I want to start by to say a little about my truly special Grandma.
My Grandma was married before she married my Grandpa and her first husband’s named Cecil. And she has Kids too in her life. Her kid’s names are Joyce, Marta and Dave. And she have a lot of family members that she have in her life. After Cecil pass away later my Grandma married to my Grandpa. She ask me that she want me to be in her wedding on Valentine’s Day. I was a beautiful bridesmaid in her wedding. Their Song is a Song that it is very special to all of us and our hearts. It is a song by All 4 One called I Swear. The Wedding touch all of us in our hearts that is a very special moment that I have with them to have that in my heart forever and always.
Grandma loves dogs And she loves to volunteer in the hospital doing volunteer work as a volunteer person to be there. My grandma back in the day she own a restaurant place called Mystix and we love to play pool there as a family. She also love to go to WinnaVegas with my Grandpa to have dinner there and to play games on the machines there. She also travel with my grandpa and that what she loved to do with my Grandpa. I love to go spend the Weekend with them and do fun things all together.
I am sad when I hear if something happens to Grandma Bea like if she gets sick and the last thing that happened after my mom tell me is that she fall and hurt her wrist. And I want her to be completely all better. I don’t want my grandma have those things happen to her and I want her to feel really good and active. She is strong and keeps going to move forward to try to get better and that’s makes me happy.
During in the Hard Week we have a hard time in our family and it is when my grandpa pass away. That was a very very very sad time that we have in our family. And it is a hard time that we didn’t know it was coming. It was unexpected to me and to our family and we didn’t know how much pain that my grandpa have inside. My grandpa was trying to get better and he have some days that he have good days and some days he have not good days. He have a very very hard time with it and he want to get better and something happen and my Grandpa didn’t make it.
My Grandma did okay but she also was very very sad about what happen to her husband and we leave her alone by herself for a little while. Sometimes people need time to be alone when something hard happens to them and that is okay. She has very strong Emotions and is very brave and has a very strong brave heart. My grandma is the strongest super brave person that I could ever have as my Grandma to make it through the Hard Week.
We are here to help her out when she needs help from our family to be with her and take care of her too. I brought a present for her and a Card too. The present is a cross to have and to hold and makes you be strongest. And also a strongest card I give to her to make her to feel not be sad and also to stay strong.
We have very touching and very special moments and times together. And I will keep the beautiful times and moments that we have together in my heart all of us with my Grandpa and with just my Grandma Bea alone too. She show me how to be brave and Strong. I love you very much Grandma straight to my heart and that is what I want to say to you.
So often when tough times come our way, it consumes us. We become so focused on how the experience has affected our hearts. Our lives. Oh how small our perspective can become so quickly. It’s that selfishness that somehow becomes instilled in us as years and experiences harden us.
And then there’s Leah.
It’s that pure heart I have spoken of before. And she doesn’t even have to try. Almost immediately after our Grandpa passed away, Leah approached me, requesting to write a blog post in honor of Grandma Bea. “I want to write in honor of Grandma Bea and her brave emotions during our hard times. I want her to know inside that we are here and think of her always and learn from her strong heart.”
Here I was wrapped up in my emotions. Leah saw the bigger picture. Grief is something that we will all inevitably face, something we must embrace…but Leah reminded me of something; in all situations, we must look outside ourselves. In doing so, we start to heal. We realize that we’re in this together.
Grandma Bea came into our lives over 20 years ago. In two decades, she has shown me that a strong woman is a wise woman. The importance of travel and experiencing the many foreign worlds that are ever-buzzing outside of Midwest, USA. That family time is the best time. That I should learn how to solve a Rubik’s Cube. She’s shown me that the best humor is dry humor. She blessed my life by extending my family with incredible humans. And most importantly, she was my Grandpa’s other half for the majority of my life.
I’ll always remember when they started dating… our family surprised him with a visit to Sioux City. We arrived at his house and he was beyond giddy, “wasn’t expecting you guys, I have a date with Bea right now! Gotta run, there’s frozen pizza in the fridge!” And off he went. Like a love struck teenage schoolboy. The rest is history, and I am beyond thankful for my Grandma Bea.
There are so many things that I love about Leah wanting to write this post. She continues to show me perspectives that come so selflessly natural to her. Her genuine concern on the well being of those around her is one of the numerous inspirations that she brings to our lives and doesn’t even realize it. How lucky we are to have her a part of our story.
Here’s to turning our minds Upside Down.
