Grandma passed some years ago (cancer). I took it very hard; a few months prior she was in the hospital. It was a few years after she died that I discovered her cancer was terminal. Anyway, years/decades have passed since her leaving, yet every Saturday, to this day, I still think about her. Just a few years ago, right here in my home, on a Saturday - late afternoon/early evening, I was having issues with my tear ducts (yes, I was crying. I was missing my grandma) I swear, and I was very awake and alert, standing just outside my bathroom, I heard her, clear as the horizon. I didn't see her, but I heard her - and she was speaking directly to me, "I've lived my life," she told me, "You have a good long life ahead. Do the things that make you happy...enjoy what you enjoy...don't mourn me or cry for me. I'm in a good place and I'm feeling much better now. It's time for you to live your life. I love you, and I'm fine." I immediately stopped crying and knew that she was there, consoling me.

In the decades since her passing, I know that I've become my own person and trying to enjoy life like never before. Thanks, Grandma, for visiting me and lifting my spirits. I love you!

What Lovely memories you have of your Grandmother. In my heart I do believe she came to you in spirit to set you free. She still loves you. Always will. I only had one grandmother I knew and she to was a wonderful person. Even though I was adopted into the family she treated me as one of her real grandchildren. I too remember her baking those wonderful cookies with the jam in the centers and lemon meringue pies and best the flannel pajamas she made each of her grandchildren. Sweet memories for sure.
