Today I am grateful for influence…for legacy.
Today I am thinking about my Grandma who passed away this time, last year. I am pondering what she left behind. In the end it wasn’t about what she accomplished, or her savvy business mind. Most of all she was a woman who loved life, she had a zest for living that was unquenchable. I hope I can walk on in her footsteps.
I am grateful for the legacy she left behind, and most of all her love for Jesus and the Word of God. She had a hunger for the things of the Lord and a passion to share it where ever she could.
I am grateful for jam making, and cookie baking. For pie crust recipes, and homemade bread. For beautiful bouquets, and picking berries. Most of all I am grateful for the lasting influence she had on our family and on my children.
My kids knew a Grandma who loved them, and instilled a passion for bettering one’s self, she encouraged learning, reading, and growing in anyway that we could. I will always be grateful for these precious memories. All I have are memories now, but I am thrilled that they are sweet ones-that I can embrace.
I am grateful to you Grandma. You were a beautiful woman who’s influence will live on. Thank you for your legacy of faith, and hunger for reading the Bible when you could barely even see. I will do my best to carry it on!
Today I am grateful and my heart is full.
