Prayers are answered
I am so excited right now! My grandpa and Grandma are going to be able to live together again!! My dad called Mary and they talked for a while- trying to decide what their plans were, since Uncle Gerry and Mom were trying to decide what to do about keeping Grandpa near Vera. Mary finally said that Grandma was not happy and there was nothing that she was able to do to make her happy. She agreed to allow Grandma to stay with Grandpa in an assisted living facility! Grandma and Grandpa are beside themselves with happiness. There is one just across the border in Pennsylvania (about 15 min from one of Marys daughter) and they have an opening. So right now everyone is trying to get the applications and paperwork in order to get them in. They are able to furnish the apartment themselves so that cuts down on the cost. Grandpa is having a heard time with the fact that there might not be anything left to pass on to his children. We have all told him that it is more important for everyone to have him and grandma together. But it is hard for him to see everything that he has worked for and wanting to pass down, getting sold and used for the home. Hopefully one day he will realize that we don't want the money- just his happiness. Thank you all for praying for our situation. I know God heard all of them and He was faithful in providing the options and answers we need. Sometimes it is hard for me to see the answers to my prayers or I never see them at all. I am glad that I got to see the answer to this one prayer. God chose to answer in this time and space and I think it has truly lifted the hearts of my family and reminded that prayers are answered and He is listening. I cannot thank you enough, my friends. God Bless!
