THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Saturday, February 07, 2009

I just want you all to know.

I am in Kansas City. I have been here since I received a call to come home because my Grandmother is passing on. She is losing her battle with lung cancer and I am home to be with her for her final days.
Right now I am focusing on sitting with my Grandmother, holding her hand and sleeping with her. My family is together and we are cherishing this time.

I am still very dedicated to the Starfish project as I know that it is very important. Please keep the sponsorships coming. We are so grateful for everyone's help, but we still have quite a ways to go. So please keep the e-mails coming. They are a bright spot for me in a very difficult time.

Please understand if I do not respond as quickly as normal, I am checking only once a day right now. I want to devote all I can to my Grandmother.

My thought and prayers are with you and your family. When my dad passed away, we were all around his bed laughing and remembering happy days. He took his last breath with all of us smiling. The nurse said it was the way people should pass with their family loving each other. That love goes with them and will comfort you in the hard days ahead.

You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. When my grandmother was ready to leave us I gave her 2 options stick around and find out how her great grand daughter was or go to her hand hold her tight until I could get to her. She chose to be my personnel angel. Your grandmother just might be that personnel angel you need these days.

God Bless

Kim,

It's been a while since I've been to your blog and now I realize what I've been missing. You are such a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you spend time with your grandmother. I understand the difficulties of this time for you as I went through this with my own mother a few years back. My hope is that you enjoy your time, and remember the little things about your grandmother so you can talk to Sophia about her great-grandmother. Take care.
