I Got To Tell Her I Love Her

December 13, 2013 in Family - No Comments

For those of you that don’t know, my grandmother is steadily declining and the doctors said she could join the angels any day now. My parents have been by her side for two weeks now, but I have not been able to go up to New York and see her. My mother has been adamant against me doing so because she wants to save me from having to see my grandmother in her current state. She also doesn’t want me to miss work because I am low on money since my project ended last month and just started a new one. Like everyone else, have bills to pay, and when I’m not at work I don’t get paid. Of course none of that matters to me, but after numerous discussions with my mom and I’m staying in Atlanta instead of sitting by my grandmother’s side. My failure to be there has made me feel guilty, selfish, and like I am being cheated out of saying goodbye. It has made me feel guilty because I can’t be there with her and say good bye or that I love her.

 

Fortunately today, while I was at work, my mom texted me and asked me if I wanted to Facetime with my grandma. She has be unconscious and non-responsive for over a week now, however since it seems the end is getting closer, my mom got past her attempt to try and protect us. She had already Facetimed with my sister and while my sister was talking to my grandmother, she opened her eyes. For the first time in over a week. When I got the text, I immediately clocked out, ran downstairs, and called my mom so I could Facetime too. Seeing my grandmother like that was absolutely devastating and heartbreaking, but I got to tell her how much I loved her. And she opened her eyes when she heard me. It was wonderful, as wonderful as anything can be in this situation. I felt like my heart was going to explode with love and happiness. I got to tell her how much I loved her, and it seems like she heard me

  • Dublin was amazing. I think I left a piece of my heart in Ireland. We were enjoying ourselves so much we didn’t stop to take many pictures. We explored the city, did a walking tour, spent time with old friends and made new ones, and went on a traditional Irish music pub crawl. It may sound cheesy but it truly was one of the highlights of our entire trip. If ever given the chance, do one. I was so sad to leave Ireland but I can’t wait to go back and explore the entire country.
  • We spent two days exploring Edinburgh. It’s a beautiful city with so much to see. We spent most of our time in the old part of the city walking the Royal Mile. We did a whiskey tour and saw an amazing collection at The Whiskey Experience. We also did a walking tour of the city, and saw where J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter. I also dragged David on a tour of the underground city and haunted graveyard - Greyfriars Kirk. The graveyard contains the famous haunted Black Mausoleum and headstones with many names familiar to fans of Harry Potter (Rowling allegedly got inspiration walking the graveyard). But most importantly, the graveyard is famous for Greyfriars Bobby, a loyal little dog that spent 14 years sitting by his owners grave. He’s has his own headstone now and people bring him sticks and dog toys. His statue outside the graveyard is the most photographed in Scotland.
