Day 3 Quote: This is a Bible verse but I live by it.
This is so important to me for many reasons but mainly because of my Grandpa. About to get emotional and personal in this one.
My grandpa and I were REALLY close. He would always tell me this verse or write it in my cards, when I needed it most. Oh gosh, I am just crying thinking about this! He fought lung cancer for 2 years and we didn’t know it. He lived in Florida most of the year. He made it to my wedding and then he deteriorated quickly after that. It was surprising to us because he looked great at my wedding. I got married in July and he passed away in February. My brother, mom and I decided to go to Florida when we got the call he was going doing well at all. The whole time, we didn’t know! He kept it from us to spare us, I guess. They would often say he wasn’t feeling well. We went to Florida and he was on his death bed. Hospice came in on that Monday. He died 2 days after we arrived. We were with him when he passed at 7:07am. The night before, he just knew. As we said goodnight, he hugged me and said, “May peace be with you.” Afterwards, we were helping his wife get things figured out and I found his calendar. He had a countdown until we got there. Guys, he held on just so he could see us. ❤ So this verse means everything to me. Not only is it true, it holds a special place in my heart.
No pressure, if you don’t want to do this or if you already have! Thanks again to Bibi for tagging me! This one was fun.
