Cherishing Our Loved Ones

I was thinking about my grandma. She is a really brave and nice woman. In the weeks since her cancer was diagnosed she has gone through hard times. She had surgery to remove a tumor that was spreading the disease, and she is not young. Recovery is hard and she is getting stronger slowly. I know she is still living with cancer that was not removed so I know she is ill still. I think we need to make time to enjoy her brave and lovely presence as much as we can. We sometimes forget in our troubles and busy days to cherish our loved ones, but when one is sick it focuses this need. I love my Oma. Each time I see her is precious.

  1. It’s so easy to take our family members for granted…we all do it. How wonderful that you are able to spend time with your Oma and tell her how much she means to you. You both look very happy in this picture!

  2. I just discovered your blog, Ido, and it has simply captured me!

    I am a grandma to a young boy living with autism as well. Every day I wish there was more I could do. It worries me that he has feelings and thoughts no one is able to perceive. Even though he talks ALL the time, it is mostly about one of three or four topics.

    I wish I could unlock this puzzle for him.

    I hope your Oma is feeling better.
