On my way to Detroit I stopped in to visit my Grandma. We live 4 hours apart and she didn't know I was coming so it was fun to surprise her! I had called ahead and booked in for supper so we shared supper together in her dining hall.
You may remember me writing about a month ago about us losing her home in a house fire so she has recently moved into a nursing facility. It's absolutely beautiful!! I tell ya, it's like the Taj Mahal of nursing facilities. She has her own apartment, eats meals in the dining room and her apt. even has a little patio for her to use next spring and summer. This place even has a little movie theatre, a snack bar, library, beauty parlor and lots of other stuff too. Beautiful!
The hard part was that it broke my heart to leave her as she kept talking about how lonely she was and how desperately she wanted a friend. Ugh...I was in tears before I left the building and cried on the phone with my Dad as I made my way to Detroit. I'm praying for a friend for my Grandma and if you think to do that too, I'd greatly appreciate it! She's an awesome lady and still has lots of spunk in her, she's just lonely.
