Diabetic day is approaching.This day brings my childhood memory.Diabetes took away one of my most beloved persons in my life.
It has been ten years since she left.She won the hearts of many in our family and in our village and basically to everyone who knew her.Each and everday most of these people if not all are hapy t do to things in loving memory of her.She was kind hearted and no body could ever imagine we could only live with her memory so soon.
Many remember her particularly because she was spiritual.She introduced us to Christ and the church.Grandma knew what Christianity meant and wanted the people surrounding her to know it as well.We loved her for that too.Oh!She taught us gardening too.
I was just a kid that time.It was one of those evenings after school and i found a crowd like group in our home.I couldn’t tell why they were there.I could only guess they came to pay a visit to my ailing grandma.She had been ailing for a long period of time.She was suffering from diabetes.I had not known diabetes was such a deadly disease,if not well managed.
Though I was young,i remember my grandpa and my aunt tried their best to manage the condition.They were always there with her.Following doctor’s prescriptions.Cooked every meal that they were told could help the manage the condition.They did all that with so much loving.
Now,on that fateful evening,a friend of mine told me my grandma had gone to heaven but she was still in her bedroom.I couldn’t figure out what she meant by that and I got really angry.How could she have gone to heaven and still be in her bedroom?I guess I was already getting a hint of what was happening but I couldn’t bring myself to admit it.
She was a loving mama,aunt and grandma to us.Being named after her,I feel like I’m more or less like her.Kind,loving,caring and all that she was(haha I know).She left a memory in our hearts and will always remember her.She was a role model.I can’t remember to forget her.
This post is in loving memory of her.Though she was in pain when she left,i know in heaven she is happy and painless rejoicing with other good people who left us.The kind of Moses and Abraham.
I know She watches over us and she is happy about how her grandchildren have grown so big.
We miss you grandma but we’re happy that you are no longer suffering.Say hello to everyone in heaven for us.
