Roberto: Hey Auntie! I was just reading your blog and it's great! I definitely love "Being Delores Ellis." I hope all is well with you. I miss and love you!Well, I can believe it and he certainly has my support and prayer. As I read his last text this scripture came to mind: "Raise up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it."
Me: Oh, it's always so good to hear from you. I sooo love you and Grandma did too. Remember that "He who began a good work in you will complete it." Grandma believed this. She loved you so very much and I loved how you always took care of her.
Roberto: Thank you, Auntie Judith. Grandma was and still is very dear to me. I have dreams of her all the time. Usually she is doing something rare like driving. LOL!
Me: That's so very funny about Grandma driving. Thank you so very much for that image which we rarely got to see. LOL! You were her willing chauffeur.
Roberto: It was my pleasure, Auntie. As I get older my purpose in life becomes crystal clear. I have Grandma to thank for that.
Me: We all have her to thank for that. Do you need anything? I know how difficult it can be out there.
Roberto: Thanks, Auntie, but I don't need anything at the moment but prayer and support! So many great things are on the horizon. I can't believe it.
Believe me when I tell you that I have departed a great many times. Even today, I sometimes fail miserably. But I guess being old varies increasingly. Now, I need your support and prayer. :-)
