My Guardian Angel!

Last Update: April 18, 2017

Today is an emotional day for me since one year ago today I lost my grandma! She was much more than just a grandma to me she was also my mother and my best friend!!!

She had a short battle with cancer last year! When I found out she was sick I dropped everything I was doing at the time and packed a bag. I moved in with my grandma and become her live in caregiver.

During this time we had hard, sad, and happy times!! Still until this day I have moments where I remember one of the good times we had and I will laugh to myself! I feel very lucky that I was able to get those precious memories with my gammy towards the end! Even through the hard times if I had a chance to redo those last two months with my grandmother I would in a heartbeat!!

As far back as I can remember my gammy and I were always very close. I knew she was always that one person who was always going to be there for me!! She was and still is my motivation to be successful and to fulfill my dreams!!!!

I could talk to my grandma about anything and she was always there for me!! No matter if I was happy, sad, or mad I knew my gammy was one phone call away!! I miss her everyday and still sometimes pick up my phone wanting to call her!!!

She would always listen to everything I had to say and was the one person I knew that truly understood me. She never judged me she just listened and would let me vent. She also gave the best advice ever when I needed it!!

She got me through some of the lowest points in my life!! She always knew exactly what to say to lift my spirits and put a smile on my face!! Even now when I am having a hard time I think of what my grandma would say to me if she was here!

She always believed in me, even at moments I doubted myself she would encourage me!! She always told me "Makayla God has big plans for you, he put you on this world to help others and I know you will achieve this and make us proud!!"

So now I think of how far I have come in the past year and how close I am at reaching my dreams!!!! I know she is watching over me and is very proud of me!

I know she was suffering a lot towards the end! She would wake up some nights with her whole body shaking since she was in so much pain. She also couldn't eat anything towards the end and she would always say "I am an Italian woman and I love to eat!" Now she is free from all her pain and suffering!!!

I will always have the best guardian angel ever!!!! RIP gammy I love you so much!!

So now I ask you who is the one person who has passed away that you know is watching over you and will always be your Guardian Angel?

I understand about Grandma's I was very attached to mine, she would cry and I would burst into tears, and I knew I had to call her, and did. It was a lifelong commitment, her and I. So yes, I understand about gammy. Tom

Thank you for your comment Tom and for sharing your relationship with your grandma. I was the same way with my grandma. We used to talk on the phone several times a day and everyone would always wonder how we never ran out of things to talk about.

I do miss her, but I know that she is in a much better place and is enjoying what she is now doing. I especially miss her banana nut bread, none better.

She will forever be at your side. Remember love never dies, and day, you will share that love with someone very special, the same way you were to your Grandmother.

I have many angels watching over me. I guess it takes a whole crew to keep me out of trouble!
