Thankful Thursday: My grandma

It’s Thursday and I’m thankful for my grandma. 

The grandmother is often the matriarch in the family and my grandma is no exception. 

She’s been there for all of us from day one—both she and my grandpa (who was also the BEST) played a vital role in raising all of us, their grandchildren and helped to form our characters essentially making us into the strong, God-fearing, loyal people we are today.

I know I can always go to my grandma when I need a listening ear, prayer or encouragement. As a grown adult, I still call her at least once-a-day to check in with her to see how she’s doing and when I need advice she’s always there ready to share her wisdom.

My grandma is the best! I appreciate her presence in the lives of my family members and I hope to be like her when I get old and gray. Despite her age, she is still quick-witted and her mind is sharp. She’s fiercely independent as she still drives her car and goes wherever she needs to any day. I often say that her brain is a sharp as a 40 year old, never missing a beat in conversation.

I enjoy visiting my grandma in her dream house that she and my grandpa built (with the help of a skilled architect) when my mom and uncle were children. It is a beautiful home and you can see the love in each room as every detail was designed, painted and decorated by my grandma who has a good eye for interior design.

Most importantly, my grandma is a God-fearing woman of faith and her prayers are the bedrock of our family to the point where people ask her to pray for them because "her prayers work”! God has answered my grandma’s prayers in many great, powerful, life-changing ways. They say that faith can move mountains and I think of my grandma when I hear that phrase.

So here’s to my grandma—bold, brilliant, beautiful—she’s truly one-of-a-kind.
