My Grandma Curry is a pretty cool lady, that must be where I get it ;) But, she's had a very tough year. You see, her husband of 61 years died almost exactly 6 months ago. They had the most amazing relationship I've ever witnessed and I'm blessed with so many wonderful memories of them together.
Grandma's been doing her best being without Grandpa. It's a struggle, but seeing her grandkids often and being able to still stare out her own window at the lake in their backyard has helped keep her spirits up, as best as she can.
Last night, I got the call that Grandma had had a stroke. We're not sure of all the details, but we do know that she was in this condition for a very long time before anyone was aware; and right now we're being told she cannot speak.
So, I'm sending my love and prayers over to her right now...and to my Dad and uncle. They've also had a tough year watching their parents go through these changes.
Like I said, my Grandma is a pretty cool lady...and we share a special bond. Our love of shoes :) When we visit, I always try to pick out a pair she will be proud of! I wore a pair she especially loved on Easter Sunday. Grandma loved them so much, she just HAD to try them on....
You can bet I'm putting on a special pair today, just for you, Grandma.
