Strength must be in the blood…

And I say that in all seriousness. Not just because it sounds nice. My grandmother who contributed greatly to my up bringing (I spent everyday mum and dad were working with her) has had her own personal battles for many years. She got Rheumatoid arthritis at around 46 and Macular degeneration at around 72. She didn’t let these (sometimes debilitating things) get her down. She still goes out with a number of friends to social events around twice a week and loves going to the shops, goes out with her many wonderful friends and has stayed strong. It’s hard to think of these, for most people basic functions, to be lost. But she has always been a very strong character. So I thank her and love her. Not just cause she’s my grandmother but also she shows me, even if you can’t do everything, you can still be a great person, give back to the community, enjoy yourself and be loved.
