Day 80 ~ To Nana, With Love

Nana ~ Thanksgiving 2009 
Today I, along with Dino and Calley, spent most of our day hanging out with Dino's mom, Gene, at her mother's home (Frances, better known as "Nana".) 

We more so were paying our respects, and letting Nana know how much we love her.

You see, in the last twenty four hours, Nana's health has had a turn for the worse. 

Nana, who is a young 85 and quite petite at her five foot staturebut don't let her size fool you!.. she's a tough cookie where you see her standing.  In the early seventies, she was the first woman vice-president of a bank when it was not the norm to be a "working woman"~  she was ahead of her time!  And well respected too!

She, has had bronchial problems, pneumonia, has had multiple surgeries, including a new pacemaker, and on top of that.. several more surgeries on the pacemaker alone... and all since November 2009.

After our visit ended... my day's experiences sent me into a head spin... thinking about my own mortality.... and not like I did not know this already, but we are all on this earth on limited time.
You have to make it count!  ... well and let me tell you...  

Nana.. well she made it count!

God bless you, Nana. 

It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth ~ and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up ~ that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.  ~ Elisabeth Kubler~Ross

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.   ~  John 3:16

Blessings to all!!
