A DAY WITH MY 93 YEAR OLD GRANDMA LOOKS LIKE THIS...
Starts off with getting her a Vanilla Diet Coke at Sonic..."My mouth is sooooo dry...."
Eating at our favorite place in Norman..."what's that thing I like again?"
Yeah, I hope I can eat quiche and Italian Cream cake at that age!
Checking out at Walmart after buying everything on the list and more!
You know it's not all fun, though. There's no pictures of the moving slowly from house to car to bank to restaurant to store. How many times I had to repeat what I said for her failing ears. Watching her eat for a half-hour after I'm finished. Hoping the wheelchair shopping cart is available. Telling her we really have to leave and we end up making just "one more stop" somewhere. Feeling guilty about forgetting something on the list. Passing by the nursery and hoping she doesn't notice and want to buy pansies for me to plant.
But then I am reminded of all of those who don't have Grandmas anymore, and Bible truths that remind me to give to those who cannot repay you (Luke 14:14). I didn't always enjoy being with my Grandma, and I believe you go through stages in that relationship just like others. Somewhere along the way we found that we enjoyed shopping and going out to eat together. Hopefully someone will take me out for Italian Cream Cake when I'm 93!
