Bee Happy

I went to see my grandmother today and she resides in a care center and is 91 years old.  She looked really good and was happy that I had finally come to visit her.  I have not seen her in a while. I know I do not visit often enough probably because  I do not like to see her living there, even though it is one of the nicest facilities I have seen.  She seemed to not have any worries and when asked if she needed anything she said: "I have everything I need here."  I think of how I would be in her situation  and think I would be angry and mad most of the time, but not granny she is happy no matter what.  This is a real eye opener for me that she can keep such a positive attitude, but she has always been like that.  I think I can learn a thing or two from her even though her life is almost over she still is contributing in ways she can't possibly understand.  I took her for Chinese food because that is what she always likes.  We had to load her and the wheelchair up and that took some time but we had a good dinner and conversation so it was well worth it.  She denies having any pain at 91 years old, now how can that be?  What a role model she is.  I love you grandma!


  1. I am sad reading this blog knowing the fact that the grandma is residing in an orphanage. I can't help but to feel sad for her. Good thing she visited her.

  2. Very emotional story but there's a lesson to be learned. Though her age is 91, she didn't show you negative attitude instead she kept the love and joy in her heart.
