Giving Thanks, part 18: Grandma

Thanksgiving 2008
Today I am grateful for my sweet Grandma Fawn.  Her years are turning more golden but her spirit is as spunky as ever.  She came to my parents' house for dinner today.  It was so fun to have her.  My favorite part of the night was an intimate exchange we had when no one else was around...

Jessi: "So how have you been doing, Grandma?"
Grandma: "Well, I'm alright, but I'm a little nervous because I forgot to bring some things that I needed tonight."
Jessi: "Oh, well what are they, we might have some for you."
Grandma: "Well, I don't think you'd have any Depends, now would you?"
Jessi: "Yup, can't help you there!"
Grandma: "Just live while you can, Honey, because when you get older you become very closely connected to the bathroom."

Wiser words were never spoken.

Love you, Grandma!!
