My beloved grandmother will be arriving soon to stay with my family for two weeks. In anticipation of her visit, we have organized her room, emptied surfaces and drawers and shelves, and borrowed a walker and wheelchair. Grandma looks forward to our active schedules and playing with our friends. We have planned day trips, swim sessions, park days, baking extravaganzas, reiki night, and a treasured massage appointment. Despite not knowing the details of her aging, we are ready for treasured time together. My heart overflows with the love I feel when I think of connecting with my mother's mother. I know the depth of this rare blessing in my life. This is a gift and opportunity offered to our family. Time with my grandmother, my children's great-grandmother, is such a gift.
