Flowers for Grandma

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 12:37 pm

“Our Lady of the Assumption” parish in Osterville has no shortage of caretakers.  These beautiful flowers were arranged by some kind soul who volunteers at the church and like every person who walks through that door are blessed.  I was thinking about my grandmother who lives way out in San Pedro, California and I wanted to dedicate this entry to her.  She is 103 years young and is cared for by an order of the Catholic church that usually goes unsung–”The little sisters of the poor”.  I visited my grandma in 2002 and I was amazed at the cleanliness, graciousness, kindness and love that emanated, rather radiated from the facility that sits way atop one of the coastal mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  There is a room called “Seaview Room”, where she looks out onto Catalina Island, a small island not to different in size than Martha’s Vineyard.  The nuns and priests that take care of these older, but precious people on the hill are to be held up high, for they do work that only angels on earth can.  My father is driving out from Canada soon to visit her and may God’s speed be with him.  Sometimes my Aunt Marilyn offers some of this new fangled technology to her and she is able to see some of the beauty that she has seen when she visited New England so many moons ago.  She is doing great, due mostly to her faith and love and with the help of the little sisters, whom I want to thank from the bottom of my heart, she is sure to continue to give out love to all of her family.  May God Bless you.  She is a very special woman and I wish her a wonderful Mother’s Day!  God Bless you Grandma!       Peace M
