Grandma Dotti

Today I have my Grandma Dotti on my mind. She is 84 years old and her body isn't functioning well anymore. Her body is actually in the process of slowly shutting down. Her Hospice nurse said yesterday that she could have a few more weeks with us or that it might only be like 3-5 more days.

She is a beautiful person, inside and out and she loves Jesus. She has a very strong faith in God and she wants to be in Heaven with him. Her mother died when she was 6 and she has lived her entire life wanting to know her mom better. I know she is very excited to be reunited with her.

My Grandma has the most cheerful attitude. She always has something positive to say and she rarely complains. She lives life to the fullest, she still has her drivers license and has been driving around her little red Miata convertible until very recently. She's never let her hair go gray but, at 84, still has blonde hair. She loves Nordstrom, dogs, ice cream and coffee. She has a huge heart and she adores her family.

Later today, we'll be driving to see her. I don't know if it'll be our last time with her before she goes to Heaven or not. It's really hard to think about that. My heart is full of happy memories though (I'll save those for another post). Here are some pictures of my beautiful Grandma:
