This past Monday the world lost an amazing soul and heaven gained an angel, her name was Joanne Fuglein but I called her Grandma.
In life there are those special people – the people who not only touch our heart but leave their mark on our soul. As a child my grandmother tended my little soul like she did her garden. She taught me the value of making things with my hands, the importance of investing in the children of today, the bounty that can be had from the garden, and what it means to have a relationship with our Creator. She loved and was loved. And although she never attended finishing school, wasn’t rich, or a lady of leasure, my grandmother was the model of gracious living. I always felt so lucky that she was mine!
When I was with her I was home. However, her home was never on earth and I always knew that. Today she is home, and truly in Heaven!!!
May we not forget the power of touching the life of a child. When we take time to invest in a child not only do we create magic in a childhood moment but we invest in a future. A future that will be brighter because of you and my Grandmother!
