Saying Goodbye

I am in the process of saying goodbye to my grandmother who is in the final stage of Alzheimer’s. This process frankly sucks because its something I don’t want to have to do but it is something that is unavoidable. Barring a miracle from heaven, my grandmother will be joining the saints who went before her. There is some comfort there but you know it still means I will not see her anymore like I have for the last 45 years of my life. She means a lot to me and our family. However as believers in God we know we will see her again. Life has a beginning, a middle and an end. What we do with that life matters and what my grandmother did in her mattered to a lot of people. So, saying goodbye will be very hard but doing what is best for her is what I/we should be focused on.

Turn Back Time

What one wouldn’t do to have more time with the ones they love. I am one of those people these days.

"I been knocking on the door that holds the throne
I been looking for the map that leads me home
I been stumbling on good hearts turned to stone
The road of good intentions has gone dry as a bone
We take care of our own
We take care of our own
Wherever this flag’s flown
We take care of our own"

— We Take Care Of Our Own - Bruce Springsteen

My grandmother back in the day. This picture was taken in black and white in 1947 and my grandfather tinted it to give it color.  My grandmother is a special lady.

Kudzu - This stuff is all over the hills and mountains in the Chattanooga area. I grew up with it being everywhere.
