An Inspiring Woman

The world has lost a wonderful woman today. One of my best blogging friends, Valerie has the sweetest Granny in the whole world. Granny turned 96 years old in October. Just last week Granny made 2 quilts. Last summer Granny was still gardening and canning. Granny has been a role model and an inspiration to many of us bloggers without even realizing it. I've never met Val or Granny, but I haven't quit crying since I read about Granny's death. It's amazing how someone we don't even know can have such an impact on our lives. I know that she is happy in heaven, but please remember Val and her family in your prayers. Thank you Val for sharing Granny with us ....she will always hold a special spot in my heart and I will alway treasure her.

Thank you Sherry. This is such a sweet post about Granny. This is my first night looking at blogs since Granny has been gone. I feel so empty. I usually go on Mondays so tomorrow will be hard. Please continue to pray for me. I just think I thought it would never end. I had so much fun with her. Thank you for this.
