The Ones Who Lead Us On

My grandmother is slowly saying her goodbyes to this world. This week she has been talking about, and seemingly “to,” some deceased members of her family. She has shared words with her sister and her mother, among others. Though some may say she is simply hallucinating, I choose to think of it as her way to connect with others who have made this journey before her. I picture her mother and my sweet Aunt coming to take her hand and lead her home. Tomorrow I will hold her hand here, perhaps for the last time. Her strength of faith will be in my heart always.
