The Husband and I were married for six years before the Shorties came along. Some of his people live in Mississippi, and when I heard that he hadn't visited them in more than a decade, I put my Wife Foot down. (We are GOING to know our relatives, thank you.) So, we loaded up and went for the first of a zillion visits. It's now a twice-a-year destination.

She looked forward to our visits as much as we did. There were homemade breakfasts for twenty people in the mornings, visiting late into the evening, sitting on the swing with coffee. I cherished the time we get to spend with her hearing about her life, her adventures, her Christian walk, her family. I'm so thankful that I got to know Steve's grandmother in a very personal way.

Ruth 1:16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God."
What a blessing it is to know that I had the privilege of knowing her on Earth and that I will be seeing her again in Heaven! And that through her life, I got to have the real experience of Steve's people becoming my people. Now, that is a life well lived.
