While in Walgreens today, I was behind a woman who resembled my grandma so much. Her posture, style of dress, even her perfume. It made me weak, and I immediately called out to God for strength.

Tears clouded my ears and I could picture her face so clearly. My grandma was the cornerstone of my life. She truly helped shape me into the woman I am today. She loved hard, even when she didn’t necessarily like someone. She wanted the best for every member of her family, and wasn’t afraid to push us in the right direction.

It is through her that I saw the meaning of unconditional love. My grandma could find the good in almost any situation. Even when cancer was ravaging her body, she remained positive. I admired her strength.

She was a wonderful woman.

When I was able to regain my composure in Walgreens, I began to appreciate today’s “gift”. In my heart, I believe it was her way of letting me know that she’s still here with me.

I’ll take these types of gifts any day of the week.
