14 Days of Gratitude–Day 4

I am thankful for:
Day 1.  Jesus Christ
Day 2.  The Bible
Day 3.  My parents

Day 4.  My Grandmother, Lynden


The fourth thing I’m thankful for is my wonderful Grandmother, Lynden.  I just went to her 90th Birthday party…and she had just finished harvesting her potatoes and tomatoes!  (with a little help!).  Yes, she says she’s slowing down a bit but she still lives on her own (for now) and looks after all her flowers.

She is so delighted any time I call!  She loves her family so much and is almost moved to tears just by a visit.  She poured so much of her life into her family and now she gets a simple enjoyment in joining in their victories and challenges, listening to their stories of adventure and looking at all the many pictures of their lives.

My Grandmother is one of my heros.  Regardless of the changing situations over the past 90 years she has always had calm and practical attitude which has kept her well throughout.  Someday I hope to be like her.

Thank-you, God, for my beautiful Grandmother!

I could continue to praise You, God, all day for this precious gift of Yours to me!
