The Greatest Gift of All

Words cannot express the way it made me feel,to experience this moment, seemed so surreal.

The way you looked at me, with the courage to be strong, it was a transition for me, to keep your legacy going strong.
As you whispered," Happy Birthday" in a special kind of way, I realized that this would always be a very special day.
You're already missed, but I'll keep pressing on, to have you as a grandmother was The Greatest Gift of All.

Faith Is..

Faith is having strength for those who are weak.
Faith is having the courage to always remain meek.
When I look at my grandmother's smiling face, she makes me even more thankful for God's Amazing Grace.

I wonder, why this is happening to me, but I am grateful enough to say FAITH is keeping me at peace.
Although the road to recovery seems to be long, my FAITH in God will always remain strong.

To those of you who have a love one in pain, remember FAITH IN GOD is what will keep you sane.
