Love of My Grandmother

Printer-friendly version
Ingrid French, Maryland

I was raised by my late grandma, aunty. Well in 2000, grandma passed away, so my mother became my aunty's caregiver. My mother and I bumped heads about certain things pertaining to my aunty. My mother suddenly passed in 2012. My aunty and I became big and little sister. My aunty's health took a strange sudden turn in mid-2013 and she is in a nursing home. Recently, there are more health challenges for her. It hurts to watch this transition in 5 years. Aunty taught me so many things — patience, faith, strength. I realize I need her. I do take time for myself. Life is too short.
