Hello everyone. I’ve debated back and forth with myself about posting this here, but I’ve decided to go on and do so. Earlier this summer, I asked for your prayers for my grandmother. She’s been in the hospital for most of the time since I wrote that post but was able to return home for a short time. (How she loved seeing her cat and being in her own bed!) My sweet grandmother went to Heaven a few hours ago.
She was an amazing lady. Among the many things that I could write about her, she would cut out coupons for me every week and mail them to me from Memphis. She delighted when I told her all of the things I was able to purchase and all of the supplies we were able to donate for the church because of those coupons. She loved hearing about all of the people I passed the coupons to and all of the programs she was able to help because of cutting the coupons. It became her way to help others as much as it was me helping others. She would often send a dollar to my daughter with the coupons and a note telling her that it was her spending money for when she went shopping with me.
I still plan to pick the winner of the giveaway on Friday, and I’ll most likely blog a little here and there as a distraction. Since I do not know what the next few days or weeks hold, though, I hope you will be patient with me. I encourage you to check the links section of the blog, as there are some amazing bloggers that have great deals regularly posted. I know they will keep you up to date.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
