My sweet grandma has not been doing well. She's been in the hospital twice this week and is there now. She suffers from advanced Alzheimer's - such a heartbreaking disease - and it just breaks my heart to not be able to hug her and tell her how much I love her in person (she lives in Puerto Rico).
This is how I like to think of her (pic circa 1995)...with the beautiful smile and those sparkling baby blues that can tell a story without saying a word. Always finding something to laugh about...her faith, strength and resilience have inspired me all of my life. She loves flowers, hence why she grabbed one of the silk ones out of my mom's jar to pose for this picture!
I came across these next 2 pics this weekend when I stumbled upon a box of old pictures while spring cleaning. This was during one of my mom's visits to PR several years back. She had just given her a cross I sent her and a picture of baby Grace. I love how happy they both look!
If you happen to read this and you have a minute or two to spare, will you lift her up in prayer, please? Her name is Virginia, but we all lovingly call her Tata.
This one is a recent one - from January, age 89 - still as beautiful as ever! Te quiero con todo mi corazon, Tata!
Thank you all so much for your prayers!
