I hadn’t seen my grandmother in over three years and we had so much to catch up on.

My daughter loved her instantly and she curled up in grandma’s lap.

We sat there talking about what had gone on over the last three years and then I talked to her about the furnace. She said it had broken about a month ago and she couldn’t afford to have the furnace fixed. I apologized for not coming to visit her and she said she understood. She knew that sometimes life got in the way of life and she was not a priority. I began to cry when I heard she didn’t think of herself as a priority. She had always come first in my life and I couldn’t figure out why that had changed. We talked about life in general as soon as I made the all important call. I called my husband and asked him to call our HVAC company and to get a furnace here as soon as possible. My husband came along with our friend, who owns the HVAC company. He had two different models in his van and all grandma had to do was choose a furnace. One of the heaters he had on the van was ductless mini split HVAC system. I had to smile because I knew that grandma would like that. There wasn’t any fuel to worry about and nothing to clean. All she had to do was use the remote control and she would have perfect heating or air conditioning.
